    Kennesaw State student pursues childhood dream through research

    June 24, 2024

    In 1981, NASA launched into orbit the space shuttle Columbia, which made 37 revolutions around Earth before safely landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California two days later. The mission was wildly successful, demonstrating the shuttle’s ability to not only take off like a rocket and carry a crew through orbit, but also land similar to an airplane. It also instilled in Ken Kubiak a lifelong fascination with space travel. Kubiak, a mechanical engineering student, enrolled at Kennesaw State University in 2022 to pursue his second bachelor’s degree.

    Most of the estimated 300,000 babies born every year with sickle cell disease, an inherited red blood cell disorder, live in sub-Saharan Africa in nations where there are few resources to treat them. Kennesaw State Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering Paul Lee said it is his life’s mission to reduce the likelihood that children born with sickle cell disease will die from strokes, one of the most common complications. Lee has received $426,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health for a three-year study aimed at developing a more economical testing device to determine an affected child’s risk of stroke.
