Now hiring: Biomedical Engineering faculty
We invite applications and nominations for full-time tenure-track or tenured positions at open rank, depending upon applicant qualifications. Areas of interest include:
- Cancer bioengineering
- Cardiovascular engineering
Addressing a PPE shortage
When local hospitals risked running out of protective gowns, biomedical engineering students saved the day. Their designs are now being produced at rates reaching 10,000 per day.
Engineering proteins to block the virus
Professor Jonathan Sachs and team aim to develop and manipulate molecules that can prevent SARS CoV-2 from attaching to human cells.
Ultrasound treatment for COVID-19
Professor Hubert Lim and team are conducting pilot studies to determine if a wearable ultrasound device could be beneficial for hyperinflammation in the lungs.
Honoring the pandemic's heroes
CSE alumnus Anant Naik (BBmE ’19) has written a book to inspire and educate children as well raise money for Doctors Without Borders.
Creating a COVID-19 simulator
Professor David Odde is creating a biophysical computer model that simulates COVID-19 on a molecular and cellular level, and tests therapies and vaccines computationally.
The case for data-driven science
In an opinion piece in the Hill, Professor Jonathan Sachs makes the case for sticking to the scientific process in the fight against COVID-19.
Pioneering, high-impact research
Department research spans the full spectrum of biomedical engineering. And our faculty are leading the way in cardiovascular, neural, and cancer bioengineering.
This provides world-class opportunities for students in the lab and classroom.
