A significant advantage of being in the Rosenman Institute are the connections that the it provides to programs that can support our work. Through the Rosenman Institute, Cenofex Innovations applied for, and were successful in gaining acceptance into the UC Berkeley Masters of Engineering Capstone Program. This program links selected industry partners with UC Berkeley Masters of Engineering students who undertake projects that develop a solution that meets an industry, market or social need. The solution may require the use of a new technology, or a new application of an existing technology. In the case of an industry partner project such as ours, the MEng students work directly with industry on a problem defined by the industry partner.
We were delighted to welcome Jacob Ruprecht as our capstone project intern this month. Jacob boasts an impressive resume, including a Bachelor of Science, Biomedical Engineering from Duke University, and experience in the mechanical testing of synthetic tissues. The focus of Jacob’s capstone project involves the development the lymphoedema fluid flow model required for laboratory testing of our devices.
Impressive qualifications aside, Jacob has been an absolute pleasure to work with, and has already contributed significantly in the research and development laboratory here at Cenofex Innovation.
