Undergraduates, Top-Level Equipment

Morgan's release

With its Visionworks software, the UVP Bioimaging System works on the same principles used to create digital animation characters in film. Used for student research in biomechanics, the system also helps the Human Powered Vehicle competition team optimize their pedaling efficiency.

Because the Rose-Hulman Biology and Biomedical Engineering department begins honing a student's lab skills very early on, all undergraduates have the opportunity to work closely with state-of-the-art lab equipment throughout their time at Rose-Hulman -- for example, this bioimaging system.

Here's a sampling of other lab tools students may use in their research:
