"The Empower program has given me the opportunity to research and implement software for the conversion of tomographic images to 3D meshed volumes. The Goal being to take the 3D volume into Abaqus for FEA analysis. Participation in the EMPOWER program has helped me grow my capabilities with Finite Element Software and my ability to do computational research. The EMPOWER program has allowed me to learn about 3D visualization software and the process behind creating a CT to FEA workflow. For research projects I learned the important of creating a plan and documenting steps." (written in October 2020)


From Adith Srivatsa, Georgia Institute of Technology, participant in fall 2020:

"My participation with the EMPOWER program has given me a better understanding of ion channels, its mechanism, and its generalizability across all fields. Under the guidance of my mentor, I was able to critically analyze literature, develop novel protocols, and reach out to experts in the field for advice on my scripts. I believe that EMPOWER has allowed me to have a better vision for the direction of simulation research. I hope to continue getting hands-on experience in the future. Two abstracts for poster presentations were submitted to the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting as a result of the work performed under the EMPOWER program. I am the first author on the submission "Molecular dynamic simulations suggest novel PIP2 binding sites for SK2 channels regulation". I am second author on the submission "Utilizing umbrella MD sampling to assess contradictory PIP2 binding site in the membrane embedded SK2-CaM complex to help further understanding of sk2 activation"."
