An Honors College Student Fellowship is a $1,500 grant given to a Commonwealth Honors student for pre-approved scholarly engagement that is overseen and guided by a mentor. Each fellowship must have a reading component, a writing component, and a speaking component. The student is expected to invest about 100 hours of focused effort. A single fellowship can be spread across twelve consecutive months, but cannot exceed.
Please note: Students can only receive one (1) Honors College Student Fellowship.
The $1,500 grant is applied to a student's financial account. Typically, half of the award ($750) is disbursed at the start of the fellowship, with the second ($750) disbursed when the student satisfactorily completes the Final Presentation (15 minutes).
How to apply:
Submit applications and any questions to Julian_Zabalbeascoa@uml.edu
Note: Presentations will be held on the first Wednesday of every month from 6:00PM-7:30PM. 4 presenters (max) at each Fellowship Group Presentation. A Zoom link will be given to you once your presentation date is confirmed. Use the Fellowship Presentation sign-up link below when ready to present.
*If interested, please contact the faculty member directly.

Machine learning has been progressively making its way to impact clinical decisions, especially in cardiovascular cardiology (so-called preventive cardiology). While most current endeavors focus on epidemiological and genetic predictors, it is marginally to apply machine learning to investigate cardiovascular fluid mechanics' contributions to cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, this project aims to explore the feasibility of using machine learning to predict complications and adverse events in patients with single ventricle (SV) malformations, one of the most severe and complex heart defects at birth. We will leverage the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia-Georgia Tech (CHOP-GT) SV database, one of the largest academic SV databases in the United States (n = ~600).

The mock circulatory loop has been widely used to assess cardiovascular hemodynamics, optimize medical devices, and assist pre-clinical testing of innovative therapy. One key step in building a cardiovascular loop is the measurement of pulsatile flow/pressure waveforms, which changes with time. This project aims to design a customized system to measure the time-varying flow/pressures in a mock cardiovascular loop. This project is feasible for undergraduate students, as a similar project has been done by an undergraduate (see reference 1)
