This recently established seminar series honors the J. Crayton Pruitt Family, and especially J. Crayton Pruitt, Sr., for their exceptional support for the Department. As Dr. Pruitt was particularly interested in nurturing young scholars we have established this lecture series aimed at identifying outstanding young scholars in Biomedical Engineering, hoping that this honor helps the Scholar on her or his career path.
This week we were honored to hear a great lecture by Dr. Christine Fleming, of the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She earned her BS in ECE at MIT and MS and PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve. Dr. Fleming’s talk was entitled “Optical Coherence Tomography for Coronary Artery Disease Diagnosis.” In the accompanying photograph she receives the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Scholar plaque from BME interim chair Bruce Wheeler.
