School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems
Drexel University

Jay Bhatt, MS
Liaison Librarian for Engineering
W.W. Hagerty Library
Drexel University

Wan Y. Shih, PhD

Details:
Biomed faculty will be introduced and will then discuss and review the definition and examples of ethics, plagiarism, and cheating. Drexel Policies and School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems policies will also be explained. These policies affect all faculty, students, staff, and any Biomed community members.

In addition, Jay Bhatt will present a talk titled, "Embrace Research Integrity, Avoid Scientific Misconduct, and Enhance Scholarly Research." In recent years, the scientific community has witnessed a number of instances of retracted research papers due to the evidence found of scientific misconduct after those papers were published. This presentation will highlight the importance of academic and scientific integrity in the progress of global research. Whether you are writing a research paper or completing an assignment for your class, it is extremely important to provide proper credit to various sources of information (journal article, conference paper, presentation, book chapter, a web site, images or any other types of resources) that were used in projects or assignments. Using various examples of breaches in academic misconduct, or retracted papers from published literature, violations in scientific integrity and academic misconduct are explained, and possible hindrances and obstacles to scientific progress are illustrated. Their consequences can be extremely damaging in career promotion and future research collaborations. It becomes critically important for creating teaching and learning environments for students and new researchers to address this global problem and enhance the quality of academic and scholarly activities.

Andres Kriete, PhD, is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Teaching Professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems at Drexel University. He received training in computational biology in academic, clinical and industrial environments and joined Drexel University in 2003. His research interests include cell aging, skin cancer, computational modeling, aging pathways, and is a collaborating partner in the Aging Initiative at Drexel University College of Medicine.

Jay Bhatt, MS, is the Liaison Librarian for Engineering at the Drexel University Libraries. He is responsible for building library collections in engineering subject areas, outreach to faculty and students, and teaching information and research skills to faculty and students in Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and related subject areas. He provides individual and small group consultations to students, instructional sessions to specific classes, online research support in both face to face and distance learning programs, and workshops for specialized research areas. Jay is actively involved with the Engineering Libraries Division of the American Society for Engineering Education. Jay has published and presented papers extensively in the area of information literacy for engineering students.

Wan Y. Shih, PhD, is presently a Professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health System at Drexel University, a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI), and a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). Dr. Shih received her BS in physics from Tsing-Hua University in Taiwan in 1976 and her PhD in Physics from Ohio State University in 1984. She was a Research Scientist in the Materials Institute at Princeton University and a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University prior to joining School of Biomedical Engineering at Drexel University in 2006. Dr. Shih is a recipient of the American Ceramic Society 1999 Edward C. Henry Electronics Division Best Paper Award. She became interested in translational biomedical research in ca 2000. Her goal in translational biomedical research has been to combine her physical science and engineering background with medicine to create revolutionary biomedical devices to fulfill unmet needs in medicine. Since 2000, she has amply demonstrated her ability to create original, groundbreaking biomedical technologies such as the groundbreaking piezoelectric finger (PEF) breast cancer detector that detects breast cancers undetectable by Mammography, an intraoperative breast cancer margin assessment tool, and the revolutionary PEPS molecular tests. Dr. Shih has had 116 scientific publications, 38 issued patents and 23 patent applications. Four of her technologies have been licensed including a hand-held, non-radioactive, non-invasive breast cancer detector (trade name: Intelligent Breast Exam (iBE) (www.iBreastExam.com)), which has screened more than 200,000 women and found 120 breast cancers in 12 countries since the inception of its partnership with GE Global Health in 2017 and is expanding rapidly in Asia, Africa, and Mexico.

Hasan Ayaz, PhD, is an Associate Professor at Drexel University, School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems, Philadelphia, PA and in the Department of Psychology at the Drexel University College of Arts and Sciences, a core member of the Cognitive Neuroengineering and Quantitative Experimental Research Collaborative and with affiliations at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He received his BSc. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Bo─čaziçi University, Istanbul, Türkiye with high honors and MSc. and PhD degrees from Drexel University where he developed enabling software for functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy based brain monitoring and FDA approved medical devices. His research interests include neuroengineering in human computer interaction and neuroergonomics, as well as clinical and field applications of optical brain imaging. Dr. Ayaz’s research involves understanding the neural mechanisms related to human perceptual, cognitive, and motor functioning with a focus on real-world contexts, utilizing mobile neuroimaging, and deploying neuroengineering approaches for neuroergonomics applications. His research aims to design, develop, and utilize (i.e. to measure->elucidate->enable) next generation brain imaging for neuroergonomic applications over a broad spectrum including aerospace to healthcare. His research has been funded by federal agencies, corporate partners and foundations, and with 200+ publications in international journals and conferences.
