Q&A with BME undergrad Adam Boeckermann
December 5, 2022 — Biomedical engineering student Adam Boeckermann spent the summer doing research in Germany on PET tracers and diagnostic imaging for diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. In a new Q&A, he talks about this opportunity and credits his experience at the University of Minnesota with preparing him for the future, saying:
"I’ve really enjoyed the curriculum, especially in Biomedical Engineering. Getting to take all these different classes in many disciplines, that's one aspect about BME that I really like. You get a solid foundation of this interdisciplinary focus, looking at all these different areas of STEM. I can actually learn from this diverse curriculum, the internships, and whatever my program has to teach me, and I can then build upon it in real-world settings."
In a Q&A with the College of Science and Engineering, Boeckermann talks about these experiences, his research, what it’s like to work in a foreign country, his love for engineering and medicine, and more:
