Class of 2011 Summer 2022 Class Note

Summer greetings to the Class of ’11!

Please communicate, as we only have one classmate’s news this time.

Congratulations to classmate Kendra Batchelder, who earned a master’s in ’13 and is a UMaine Ph.D. candidate in computational biomedicine, won the inaugural Impressive Innovator Award from UMaine’s Foster Center for Innovation last spring.

Kendra is a member of the Computational Modeling, Analysis of Imagery and Numerical Experiments (CompuMAINE) lab led by professor of biomedical engineering Andre Khalil. The two are co-inventors of a patented computational approach designed to aid in the early detection of breast cancer and have been working to commercialize this technology.
