Second Summer Seminar Held
June 22, 2005
Graduate student Aaron Lottes has presented the second summer seminar series on Improving Survival from Long-Duration CPR. The research, in part, looks at cellular chemical activity and the need to replace chemicals during prolonged CPR. Open to students, faculty, staff, and prospective students, the Summer Seminar series provides students the opportunity to present research and develop presentation skills in a friendly and supportive environment. After the presentation, there is a session for technical questions, then a session to provide feedback and constructive criticism on the presentation itself.

Students who take part in the series are eligible for the Fearnot Prize. Dr. Neal Fearnot, a Purdue alumnus and president of MED Institute, established this award because he felt that the experience he gained as a student presenter at the BME summer seminar series was extremely valuable. The award is presented to the graduate student whose presentation receives the highest evaluation from the faculty, students and staff attending the seminars.
