Wilkes University electrical and mechanical engineering majors presented their senior projects and demonstrated them at an event on April 28. It was attended by faculty, friends and family. Engineering students in the University's College of Science and Engineering are required to complete a senior project as part of the requirements to complete their degrees.
Wilkes University assistant professor of physics Del Lucent and mechanical engineering students, Michael O'Brien of Quakertown, Pa., and Daniel Sales of Laflin, Pa., attended the annual meeting of the Biophysical Society, held Feb. 17-21, 2018, in San Francisco, Calif. The students presented their poster and data on topological data analysis of protein dynamics using persistent homology. The project uses a mathematical technique, topological data analysis, to look for patterns in large simulations of protein folding. Protein folding is an action that occurs on the cellular level and analyzing it can be used to research treatments for a variety of disorders.
