  • The Breakthrough Lab (B-Lab) at the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship is an intensive 8-week accelerator program that supports student entrepreneurs developing high-impact ventures. Abigail Kohler ’20 and Greg Fine ’20 are both Brown University Engineering students and their venture, Resuscitech, aims to produce a wearable CPR aid to improve the quality of chest compressions.

    CPR often fails due to rescuer stress, fatigue and neglect of CPR guidelines. Their device aims to increase CPR success rates by providing rescuers with real-time feedback via a simple user interface, resulting in an increased quality of care and survival rate for victims of cardiac arrest.

  • After Brown juniors Daniel Newman and Peter Lees signed up for John Tomasi’s political science course “Bleeding Heart Libertarianism” in spring 2019, they expected four months of reading and discussion on the history of libertarian thought. What they got instead was a self-directed crash course in applied political philosophy — and a ticket to Chile.

  • It’s mid-April and Emily Siff ’19 just got out of the hospital, where she spent a few days experiencing pain that opioids weren’t addressing. “It was overcrowded and noisy,” she recalls. “There was no way to sleep, so I started doing statistics homework. It was so relaxing.”

    Siff was diagnosed at 14 with an incurable, congenital illness. It causes her constant fatigue and pain—and, to date, 14 surgeries—but she won’t disclose it. “When you have a chronic illness, you’re in an intimate relationship with it,” she says, “but so many things impede the ability to be a private person.”

    What she will discuss is how living with an illness has driven her. In the fall, via Brown’s combined degree program, she’ll graduate with not only a bachelor’s degree in literary arts but also a bachelor’s and master’s in cognitive science. Even before Brown, “school became a lifeline because my disease drove me to explore. I don’t know if I would’ve become interested in the sciences if I hadn’t been constantly interacting with doctors.”

    She works in two labs, sociology and psychology, where she studies things like how power dynamics play out over the use of nonverbal communications like emojis. “I’m interested in answering questions that social scientists ask through a biochemical approach,” she says.

    She mentors in three programs. Two are on campus: the Matched Advising Program for Sophomores, which gives academic support to second-years; and Women in Science and Engineering, a Sarah Doyle Center for Women and Gender program that brings students together with science faculty. Then there’s The Adolescent Leadership Council, a program at Hasbro Children's Hospital, in which she and others with illnesses or disabilities nurture kids who also have those things. “It’s cathartic,” she says, “because I’ve realized how unspecific my experiences are.”

    That’s reflected in the book she’s writing for literary arts, “Bolt From Blue,” about a teenager with an incurable condition: “Part of the book is about the universality of dealing with shit, whether it’s illness, losing an arm, or sucking at math. Everyone has their issues.”

    After Brown, she’ll seek a Ph.D., possibly in cognitive neuroscience: “I think I’ll be happy as an academic.”
