Biomedical Art majors Erika Woodrum ’14 and Carolyne O'Ryan ’13 won awards of merit at the Association of Medical Illustrators Conference in Salt Lake City in July. A majority of the students they competed against were graduate students of medical illustration, said Thomas Nowaki, interim chair of the Biomedical Art Department.
“Our students were up against students from Johns Hopkins University, the University of Toronto, the Rochester Institute of Technology and other highly competitive programs. This is the third consecutive year we have submitted entries and the third year we’ve had two winners,” he said.
Woodrum was honored in the editorial student category for her piece, “UV Protection and Sunscreens.” O'Ryan was honored in the animation student category for her animation titled “Carbon Comics” (shown above).
In addition, Joseph Pangrace ’83, supervisor of medial illustration at Cleveland Clinic and an adjunct faculty member in Biomedical Art, won an award of merit for his contributions to the surgical Atlas of Intestinal Stomas. Wendy Knapp '11 was a contributor to the atlas project while an intern at Cleveland Clinic.
