For one thing, it is a highly collaborative field where bioengineers work with molecular biologists, neuroscientists, pathologists, clinicians, and physical therapists. Think regenerative medicine, smart arms (robotic prosthetic limbs), smart homes (designed to support individuals), and so much more!
Six tracks in bioengineering will be touched on: cellular and organ engineering, biomechanics, biosignals and imaging, physiology and biophysics, neural engineering, and medical product engineering.
Meet PhD students who'll share their career paths and experiences. Students will engage in a hands-on challenge.
Presented by University of Pittsburgh's Bioengineering Department and Biomedical Engineering Society.
