May 30, 2008 Prof. Shi awarded 3 year NSF grant for MEMS actuator with integrated nanowires research
Prof. Yong Shi was awarded a 3 year grant from NSF for the project 'MEMS Umbrella-shaped Actuator with Active Structures for Medical Applications'. Co-PIs working with Prof. Shi on the project are Ming Zhang and Sundeep Mangla from SUNY Downstate Health Science Center. The objective of the research is to design, fabricate and test an umbrella-shaped microactuator based on an integrated micro/nanofabrication technique for thrombus retrieval in stroke therapy.
