EVL Student Receives 1st Place in 2012 UIC Image of Research Competition
Participants: Thomas Marrinan (Computer Science), Ian Gould (Bioengineering)
Daley Library, Library of Health Sciences
Tom Marrinan, a student of UIC’s Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL), in collaboration with student Ian Gould of the UIC Bioengineering Laboratory for Product and Process Design, received 1st Place in campus’ 2012 Image of Research competition. Winning entries from this annual interdisciplinary event showcase the breadth and diversity of research at UIC.
Winning entries are on exhibit in the lobby of the Daley Library from April 19 - May 31, in the Library of Health Sciences, and featured on light pole banners around campus. Winners, finalists and a wide selection of other entries are also posted to an online gallery in the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI).
Marrinan and Gould’s image is the result of collaboration between a computer science student specializing in scientific visualization and a bioengineering student with research interests in cerebral blood flow, and depicts the complex architecture of the cerebral vascular network.
This is the 3rd time EVL has received 1st Place in the five years of the annual Image of Research competition, as well as recognition in several other select categories. Here is a summary of all EVL accomplishments:
