Write-up in Case Daily

If you are clicking through from Case Daily, welcome! There was a nice write-up about my award at IEEE Sensors Conference in Friday's issue. Here's the text below with some additional hyperlinks and clarification:

Bradley Farnsworth, a graduate student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, won first place in the Best Student Paper competition as part of the 2008 IEEE Sensors Conference in Lecce, Italy, in October. The award included a prize of 750 euros. Farnsworth, who is part of Professor Darrin Young's Wireless Microsystems research group, is working on the paper for his thesis topic and is collaborating on this project with the Advanced Platform Technology (APT) Center at the Cleveland Louis Stokes VA Medical Center. The full citation for Farnsworth's paper is B. D. Farnsworth, R. J. Triolo, and D. J. Young, "Wireless Implantable EMG Sensing Microsystem." In addition, he received a top prize at the 2008 Research ShowCASE for the poster about his research; the award included a $1,000 account for research activities and a $250 check. He used a portion of these funds to attend the conference in Italy, along with assistance from the APT Center and ENSCO, Inc.
