Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The complex yet interesting field of vision research has been evolving in the past few decades within the Biomedical Engineering curricula. As more pre- college students are exposed to vision research, it can be anticipated that this field will bring in a new generation that will take part in the various studies of the visual and ocular system. NJIT's pre-college program FEMME, allows pre-college girls to have summer workshops studying many engineering majors. Our goal was to introduce and expose vision research to girls to stimulate their research interest.
