Student engineers help kids with disabilities walk, play with peers
For young children with developmental disabilities, learning to walk can be a long-term process. An inexpensive, “hybrid” walker designed by a team of biomedical engineering seniors can help.Read More
BME Magazine | Fall 2018
Check out the Fall 2018 issue of the BME magazine to meet our three new faculty members, catch up with our talented alumni, and read about our students who are taking a stab at some of the world's largest engineering problems through the Grand Challenges Scholars Program. This year, our BME faculty members have had great success in securing new funding for research and also developing exciting new industry partnerships to translate their research advances to commercial products and clinical practice. Congratulations are in order for many of our BME students, faculty, and staff as they continue to garner numerous awards and honors.
The distance between Goergen Hall, home to the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and the University of Rochester Medical Center. Less than a 5 minute walk, this close proximity makes it easy to connect with clinician colleagues.
