BME Ph.D. Student Developing Diagnostic Tool for Anemia, Testing it on Himself

So much rides on that project. The stakes are high for any scholar. But Robert Mannino, a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Wallace Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, has actual skin the game. “And blood,” adds Mannino, who got unanimous approval for his project proposal last semester. He may have received some personal points for creativity.
     “Rob is basically devoting his Ph.D. work to his own disease, and everyone grasped not just the novelty of that, but the importance of it,” says Mannino’s advisor, Wilbur Lam, a researcher at the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, who is assistant professor of pediatrics and biomedical engineering in the Wallace H. Coulter Department.
