Alexander Isakov and Kimberly Murdaugh have invented a safer and more efficient laparoscopic morcellator. Their invention has won the Grand Prize at the 2013 International Student Design Showcase in Minneapolis, MN! Our warmest congratulations to Alex, Kimberly, William Burke, and their colleagues who helped make it happen.

The device that they invented can help surgeons to remove pieces of tissue from the body through small incisions. The morcellator is like a combination of a grinder and a vacuum cleaner that allows surgeons to cut up and remove a much larger object from the 1cm holes. Alex and Kimberly perfected the current morcelators, which tend to be time consuming, training-intensive, and run the risk of seeding cancerous tissue. Alexander, Kimberly, and William studied the morcellation process thoroughly and developed the prototype, which showed significant improvements over the existing system. On this picture, they are testing the prototype on the animal model of a pig.

Their advice for young researchers? "I'd recommend not being afraid to try new things! Before working on this project, designing a medical device seemed difficult and daunting, and I hadn't done anything like it before. But I realized it would be a fun opportunity to learn something new. With a lot of teamwork over the course of the semester, we were able to come up with different ideas, work hard, and make something that might help patients one day."

Congratulations to our newest #ResearchSuperstars!

Popular actor/ TV host and youth icon, Rannvijay Singh
has joined hands with The Spartan Poker, country's leading and most popular poker gaming
portal as their first brand ambassador.

Poker as a game has thrived in India and has certainly swept the youth
off their feet, and several Bollywood celebrities too have been caught up in the tide.
Poker has always been a highly popular activity in Bollywood, with stars barely needing any reason to bring out the cards.
Rannvijay being an avid poker player himself actively takes part in various poker
tournaments and has also won quite a few hands at
the table.

Launched in the year 2014, the online poker gaming portal
has become the most trustworthy online gaming portal in India among patrons and Poker lovers.
With a vast variety of Poker tournaments and game offerings the online Poker portal founded by Poker Badshah,
Amin Rozani, has been the hotspot for Poker aficionados since its
inception. The Association of Spartan Poker
and Rannvijay Singh have been in talks since a really long time which
is the very reason they finally decided to make it publically official.
