Burr & Forman UCF Scholarship Recipient Developing Innovative Fat Analytical Software
Orlando, July 31, 2015 - Burr & Forman LLP announces that through its partnership with the University of Central Florida, a scholarship recipient is working on a team to develop software that analyzes body fat in a matter of seconds, and could one day save lives.
Burr & Forman's Orlando office funded three scholarships for the Burnett Honors College students at the University of Central Florida. One of the scholarship recipients, Arjun Watane, was named in an article for his work provided by the funding of this scholarship. Watane is working alongside Ulas Bagci, an assistant professor in the Center for Research in Computer Vision in the College of Engineering & Computer Science, and fellow student, Sarfaraz Hussein.
The software was created to help doctors quickly determine whether adults have good fat cells that are beneficial in fighting off weight gain and can potentially slow cancer growth. It can also determine if there are bad cells, more common, these fat cells can live just below the skin in subcutaneous cells or deeper in visceral cells, potentially wrapping around organs.
