Our Senior Design Team
We are a group of Biomedical Engineers and Material Science undergraduate majors working together to accomplish the final task of our undergraduate year at the University of California, Irvine. We have complete confidence in our product and strive to be the new technology used for breast self-examinations.
Kevin Bui is a fourth year undergraduate Biomedical Engineering: Premed major at the University of California, Irvine. He has interned at another medical device startup company and loves learning about new and emerging technologies. His main role is leading the team as well as developing the electronics for the ultrasound technology.
Ariana Tantengco is a fourth year undergraduate Biomedical Engineering major at the University of California, Irvine. She found a lump on her breast at the age of 21 and has experienced breast cancer testing through an ultrasound. She luckily only had dense breast tissue which is common for younger women. She is a firm believer in the device and looks forward to their product helping every woman with breast self-examinations. Her main role is researching and working on the general design of the device.
is a fourth year undergraduate Materials Science and Engineering major at the University of California, Irvine. His main role is producing a testable breast phantom with polymers that act as phantom tumors.
Irwin Mier is a fourth year undergraduate Biomedical Engineering major at the University of California, Irvine. His main role is working on the general design of the device.
Jacob Stuber is a
fourth year undergraduate Biomedical Engineering major at the University of California, Irvine. He is extremely passionate about this product due to family history
with breast cancer. His main role is designing and testing the ultrasound technology as well as developing the ultrasound software.
Thank you to our Mentor Dr. William Tang, Ph.D from the UCI Department of Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Material Sciences, and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
“This experience in developing a device to detect breast cancer will have a positive impact on every women’s lives and could be a huge business opportunity because nothing like this has ever been done before. To be able to make a device that is not only affordable but also convenient for people is life changing.” – Ariana Tantengco
“I don’t want anyone else to have to experience what my mother experienced. This is why I want to be a part of the breast cancer acoustic diagnosis project.” – Jacob Stuber
“I hope that through this research opportunity, we can truly take away the fear of breast cancer and bring peace to our families.” -Kevin Bui
