Bioengineering research and education at UC Berkeley
BioE capstone startup Eko Devices won the People’s Choice Award at the American Heart Association’s 1st health tech competition, and is a semi-finalist in the 2014 Extreme Tech Challenge. Go Eko!
Bioengineering undergraduate Zachary Zeleznick was one of only eighteen U.S. students selected to participate in the 2014 Silicon Valley Bank Trek. The Trek brings together top student innovators for a 3-day series of events with their Trek Guides, a “who’s who” of influential investors and entrepreneurs in the tech community, building a network of peers and advisors. Congratulations Zachary!
