Carnegie Mellon's Sanna Gaspard named 'New Face of Engineering'
Date:3/1/2010

PITTSBURGHCarnegie Mellon University's Sanna Gaspard was chosen as the 2010 Engineer's Week "New Face of Engineering" in February for her innovative research into a pediatric device to improve the overall heath and survival rate of newborn babies.

The new "Faces of Engineering" recognition program is sponsored by the National Engineers Week Foundation, a coalition of engineering associates, major corporations and government agencies. The program highlights the vitality, diversity and rich contributions of engineers under age 30.

"I was extremely excited about this accolade. I hope this award will encourage young engineers to explore the wealth of career options that exist for engineers ranging from entrepreneurship to field research. Specifically, I also hope that this award will encourage young women to pursue careers in the transformational field of engineering," said Gaspard, a 28-year-old Ph.D. student in biomedical engineering at Carnegie Mellon. To ensure that her pediatric technology will make it to hospitals and home nurseries where it could

help infants, Gaspard founded a startup company called TLneoCare, LLC. Through TLneoCare she is commercializing a new neonatal physiotherapy unit that is designed to soothe and improve the health of newborns.

"Gaspard is a truly dedicated biomedical engineering student with an entrepreneurial spirit committed to translating her bio-instrumentation research and development to society, where it has the potential to save lives, said Alessandro Ferrero, past president of the IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Society and the award nominator.

To complete her studies at Carnegie Mellon, Gaspard is developing a diagnostic medical instrument for early pressure ulcer detection.

Todd Przybycien, a professor of chemical and biomedical engineering at Carnegie Mellon and Gaspard's Ph.D. advisor, praised Gaspard for her unique mix of creativi
