Chair’s message

FletcherWelcome! As Department Chair, I thank you for your interest in Bioengineering at UC Berkeley. It is an honor to work with such talented faculty, staff, and students to advance research and education at the intersection of engineering, biology, and medicine.

A theme that ties our diverse efforts together, I believe, is IMPACT. Whether through fundamental research or applied design, through educating leaders or empowering clinicians, through volunteering around the globe or starting companies at home, what Berkeley Bioengineers really aim to do is change the world.

On this site you’ll find stories of some of the most exciting research advances, impressive awards, dedicated supporters, and underlying it all, the boundless energy and optimism that makes Berkeley Bioengineering the exciting community it is.

Please explore the site – and come back often – to learn how Berkeley bioengineers are working every day to advance the biological sciences and revolutionize healthcare.

Thank you, and Go Bears!
