Grove School of Engineering Dean Gilda Barabino

CCNY Dean Gilda Barabino elected to National Academy of Engineering.

As one of only six African-American women to hold the distinction, The National Academy of Engineering cites Dean Gilda Barabino’s leadership and inclusivity in bioengineering research and education!

Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.”

As the Berg Professor in the Biomedical Engineering department in CCNY, Dean Barabino has been a strong supporter of our Master’s in Translational Medicine program since its inception. We’re so excited and proud of Dean Barabino’s award!

Translational Medicine grads win international pitch competition with wearable menopause management technology.

The Master’s in Translational Medicine (MTM) program at The City College of New York (CCNY) is an exciting collaboration between The Grove School of Engineering and The CUNY School of Medicine. A new kind of graduate degree program, MTM is gaining traction in the rapidly growing New York City healthcare landscape, educating the next generation of leaders in medical technology innovation.

Earlier this month, an MTM alumni Biodesign team won the Nestlé Skin Health SHIELD “Journey to Innovation in Skin Health” Pitch Event. MenoPal, a team comprised of 2017-2018 MTM graduates, is working on a “Wearable Medical Device for Menopause Management.”  The team will receive $25,000 in project funding and, importantly, the opportunity to work with SHIELD on further development of their product.  MenoPal was also recently awarded a National Science Foundation I-Corps™ grant to conduct customer discovery around their product.

SkInsight, a second team comprised of MTM alumni, won an honorable mention for their software application that aimed to help individuals dealing with symptoms associated with atopic dermatitis.
