Twenty-two research projects involving BU faculty and graduate school biomedical researchers are among the 49 presentations that will be displayed at the SUNY Upstate Medical University’s 10th annual Clinical Campus Research Poster Session. The session will be offered from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, November 21, in the Keeler Building Gymnasium of the Binghamton Psychiatric Center, 425 Robinson St., Binghamton.
Researchers from BU represent several departments including biological sciences, chemistry, clinical psychology, the Institute for Child Development, systems science and industrial engineering, chemistry, anthropology and computer science. Several other projects include BU faculty researchers working with other universities.
Among the posters to be presented will be one outlining a collaborative project entitled “Early detection of breast cancer using DNA biosensor with support vector machines.” The project involves professors Omowunmi Sadik, Susannah Gal and Walker Land of Binghamton University and Dr. J. Terzian of Lourdes Hospital.
