Katherine Freed wins first place at the International ISPE Undergraduate Poster Contest
Date:12/21/2007

HOBOKEN, N.J. Katherine Freed, undergraduate at Stevens Institute of Technology, won first place at the International ISPE Undergraduate Poster Contest in Las Vegas in November 2007. Freed was the first competitor from New Jersey to win this ISPE award. Her winning poster, Impedance Mammography, was based on a project she created with her Senior Design team at Stevens.

In April 2007, the New Jersey Regional ISPE Poster Contest was hosted by the Stevens ISPE Student Chapter. Freed was one of the two first place winners at that contest. Her team members included Megan Caldeira, Rachel Ostroff, and Esther Rodriguez. The teams faculty advisors were Dr. Vikki Hazelwood, Senior Lecturer in the Chemical, Biomedical and Materials Engineering Department, and Dr. Rainer Martini, Assistant Professor of Physics and Engineering Physics.

The NJ Regional contest was hosted by Dr. Richard S. Berkof, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stevens, Director of the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Engineering Program, and Faculty Advisor for the Stevens Student Chapter of ISPE. The contest was attended by students and faculty from New Jersey Institute of Technology (Dr. Piero Armenante, Faculty Advisor), Rutgers University (Dr. Henrik Pedersen, Faculty Advisor), and Stevens Institute of Technology, as well as pharmaceutical industry executives, some of whom served as judges for the posters and presentations. The ISPE New Jersey Chapters Tom Malone, Joe Manfredi, Leonid Shnayder, and Lorraine Gallo helped make the April event a success.

Twenty posters were submitted at that competition of which six were chosen to go on to compete in Las Vegas in November. The other finalists included the Automatic Pill Bottle Opener by Jorge DaSilva (Stevens), Effect of Dry Particle Coating on Packing Density by Lauren Beach (NJIT), Physics Based Modeling of Tablet Dissolution by Dan Braido (Rutgers), Experimental and Computational Determination of the Hydrodynamics in a Stirred Tank Rea
