2019: SNVC 

Desai NASA

A NASA-funded Wichita State University research project will seek to understand how the human brain responds to gravity while in space.

The Kansas NASA EPSCoR Program recently awarded $127,600 to a multidisciplinary research group for the project.

Researchers will design a neuro-virtual interface system that will evaluate and learn the human brain response in different gravity conditions, integrate neuro-robotic control algorithms for a virtual robotic limb and quadcopter, and perform offline and online testing on human subjects. It will use human brain signals to manipulate or control mechanical systems in a virtual environment. Read More

2019: Sierra Bonn

Sierra BonnSierra Bonn, a junior majoring in biomedical engineering, was recently recognized as one of the six Wichita State students named as University Innovation Fellows. In this role as an innovation leader at WSU, Sierra wants to focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) education.

Stanford University’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design recognizes students from across the country every year to be a part of this prestigious national program, and this year there are six from WSU. The program seeks to empower these students to be leaders and increase campus engagement, entrepreneurship and innovation.

I’ve always loved innovation and entrepreneurship, so my career goal is to help bring emerging technologies, new inventions and novel ideas into the market place — specifically medical technologies that help make life better,” she says.  Read More >

2019: Student Innovation Fellows represent WSU in Silicon Valley


Wichita State students Jessica Aldrich and Levi Lowe were chosen by the national University Innovation Fellows program as two of only 24 other U.S. students to attend the Silicon Valley Meetup as student event leaders.

The event was held March 21-25 at Stanford University. Aldrich and Lowe were hand-selected out of an international community of more than 1,800 Innovation Fellows for the impact they have had at their schools and for their contributions to the movement.

 “I'm hoping to grow as both a student and a leader and come out of this experience with a broader perspective of the world and new, lasting friendships with students from diverse backgrounds who will continue to motivate me,” said Aldrich.   Read More >
