In a time where video is king, Dr. Tigli and his team take on cancer diagnosis education through video.

NSF Science 360, the innovative video platform from the National Science Foundation for promoting breaking science from around the world, featured an educational video series created by the BioMEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems) Lab team, led by Dr. Onur Tigli, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Pathology at UM.

The video series, which centers on novel microchip technology, was developed by Tigli and his lab team from start to finish, including script writing, interviewing, recording, voiceovers, animations and editing. This type of project was instrumental to developing interdisciplinary skills of students while finding innovative ways to promote new research.

Tigli developed this series as part of his NSF CAREER Award, which is the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious award in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research. The goal of the series was to serve as short video lectures on different engineering research projects from the lab to educate engineering students from other fields, the UM community, and the scientific community at large.

The series includes three videos as of now with a fourth on the way. The first two are dedicated to microchip technologies for cancer diagnosis. The topic for the third video was dedicated to Tigli’s ongoing research on energy harvesting by popular demand, and the fourth video, which is currently in development, will be related to MEMS, Biosensors, Lab-on-a-Chip, Surface Acoustic Wave Devices or Cancer Diagnosis.
