BME alumnus Diego Rey is a biomedical engineer, entrepreneur, and developer of molecular diagnostic solutions for bacterial resistance. GeneWEAVE, Inc., which he co-founded with two fellow graduate students while at Cornell, sold to Roche last year for $425M. More
High school students from the Southern Tier learn about different BME research paths in tours of the Bonassar, Butcher, and Nishimura labs. More
Natalie Kelly, a graduate student in Marjolein van der Meulen’s lab, works to find gene changes that occur in the postmenopausal skeleton after mechanical loading. The goal of the research is to find molecular mechanisms that lead to bone loss and osteoporosis. More
Associate Professors Fischbach-Teschl & Hernandez featured in video about Public Voices program to diversify the Op-Ed landscape. More
Interacting with clinicians is critical to the success of biomedical engineers. To prepare BME Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) students for these future interactions Cornell BME has previously piloted single day and week-long clinical immersion experiences. This year a clinical mentorship course was created to provide a more extensive clinical experience with a single dedicated clinician. The mentorship provided a one-on-one interaction with clinicians for an extended period of time to understand their needs and relate the knowledge gained in the classroom to clinical questions. More
Hands-on experience excites enthusiam for engineering in students of all ages, so the Nishimura Lab hosted nearly fifty high school students this summer as part of Cornell Engineering’s CATALYST Academy. The CATALYST Academy is a selective one-week summer residential program that enables high school students from all over the country to gain valuable insight into engineering research. The program aims to promote interest within the engineering field by exposing high school students to classes, lab sessions, and research at Cornell University. More
The Department of Biomedical Engineering welcomes back students returning from the 2014 Immersion Term in New York City. The BME summer immersion term aims to give students the opportunity to see first-hand how the results of biomedical engineering impact patient diagnosis and clinical treatment. Follow the link to read more about the 2014 immersion program. More
We are pleased to announce that Marjolein van der Meulen, the John Swanson Professor of Biomedical Engineering, has accepted our offer to serve as the Chair of the Department for a five-year term starting July 1, 2014 and ending June 30, 2019. More
Science Magazine selected Ben Cosgrove's research on muscle regeneration using stem cells as the February 2014 Editors' Choice for Biomedicine. More
Biomedical engineers at Cornell University are turning sticky nanoparticles into “cancer-killing machines” to prevent cancer cells from spreading throughout the body. The groundbreaking research could one day pave the way for eliminating 90 percent of cancer deaths. More
Cornell University's Department of Biomedical Engineering is the 2013 recipient of the Biomedical Engineer Society's Diversity award.
Cornell’s success in recruiting and retaining women and underrepresented minority students through the inclusive programming, faculty-student engagement, cross-institutional partnerships and outreach is particularly noteworthy.
This is the fifth Diversity Award presented by BMES, and it is the first occasion an organization or group is receiving it. More
