Tangkwa Sakulsaengprapha awarded Tau Beta Pi scholarship

Tangkwa Sakulsaengprapha, a rising senior in biomedical engineering, has been awarded the Tau Beta Pi scholarship for the 2017-2018 academic year. With a minor in computational medicine and psychology, Sakulsaengprapha is working with Xingde Li to find an algorithm that can extract and quantify hidden morphological features found in images of collagen fibers from mouse cervices. They will investigate how these parameters differ in normal and diseased mouse models, and hope to eventually yield reliable indicators for preterm birth prediction in clinical practice.

Sakulsaengprapha is involved in the Thai Student Association, the Johns Hopkins wind ensemble, and the Johns Hopkins Model United Nations Conference. She is also a PILOT leader and a resident advisor.
