Undergrads Brianna Cathey and Sofian Obaid publish in Scientific Reports

February 11, 2019

BME undergraduates Brinna Cathey and Sofian Obaid, working with Dr. Igor Efimov, are the first authors in paper published January 24 in Scientific Reports. This paper presents an open-source platform for optcardiography, in which both software and hardware are open to the public via open-source license. Hardware can be printed on a 3D printer.  The platform will be very useful in numerous university labs and schools, in research and education of the heart.  

The citation for their paper is: B. Cathey, S. Obaid, A. M. Zolotarev, R. A. Pryamonosov, R. A. Syunyaev, S. A. George, and I. R. Efimov. “Open-Source Multiparametric Optocardiography,” Scientific Reports, Vol. 9: 721 (2019).

A recent GW Today article, “SEAS Students Design 3D-Printed Optical Mapping System,” further explains their research and its implications.
