"That's Why I Toured Yale"- The CEID Makes a Cameo

“The video showcases both the beautiful Yale campus and a unique Yale wit in a way that will resonate with prospective students,” said Dean of Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid Jeremiah Quinlan in the Yale Daily News. “I am confident it will make a strong impression on our campus visitors, who will watch the video before their information session or tour. I am also optimistic that the video online will reach a diverse group of prospective students from around the world who are unable to visit campus.”

HAM Radio at Yale, 85 Years And Going Strong

HAM Radio at Yale, 85 Years And Going Strong

Making its own comeback is Yale’s amateur radio organization, W1YU. Founded in the early 1930s, the Amateur Radio Club at Yale had a strong run for many decades, but activity started quieting down by the 1980s and ‘90s “as other technologies became shiny and new.” But in recent months, the crackle, hiss and chatter of amateur radio systems is springing back to life in the Yale community and around New Haven. And indeed, the club has been going full force in the last year or so: earlier this semester, it hosted a very well-attended demonstration for Yale students at the Center for Engineering Innovation and Design (CEID), and it now holds regular meetings for members and prospective members in Dunham Lab.

Yale start-up’s device makes a medical procedure a lot safer

Yale start-up’s device makes a medical procedure a lot safer

Placing a central venous catheter, or a central line, in patients is a common procedure for physicians, but not an easy one. In fact, mistakes happen up to 10 percent of the time and cost U.S. hospitals an estimated $4.5 billion each year.

With its Ballistra Guidewire Advancer, the Acantha Medical team – made up of Yale students and faculty – hopes to eliminate many of those complications and make the procedure much safer. In less than two years, the start-up has attracted a number of investors and accolades. Most recently, it won a $15,000 prize from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering and VentureWell.
