The National Institutes of Health has renewed the R25 grant which funds the Bioengineering Summer Biodesign Immersion Experience, adding up to a full decade of funding for the summer immersion capstone experience for undergraduates.
The Bioengineering Honor Society hosted their third annual Bioengineering High School Competition (BioEHSC) at UC Berkeley last Saturday, April 9. BioEHSC is intended to help high school students explore bioengineering, the application of engineering principles to biological or medical systems.
The capstone team SurgiSun made it to the semifinals of the Bay Area Global Health Innovation Challenge, competing against graduate and postdoc-level innovation teams. Amy Lyden and Neha Kumar presented “SurgiSun: A Surgical Light for the Developing World” at the showcase held at UC Berkeley on April 8th.
The ForSight capstone team of Amanda Haack, Zane Liu, Ian Lin, and Ashu Shrestha will be competing this week at the Rice 360° Sixth Annual Undergraduate Global Health Technologies Design Competition.
Good Luck ForSight!
Congratulations to BioE students Amy Lyden and Amanda Haack, recipients of 2016 Whitaker International Fellowships! The Whitaker International Fellows and Scholars Program sends biomedical engineering students for one year anywhere outside the U. S. or Canada to conduct research, hold internships, or complete coursework.
Eight bioengineering students have been selected to participate in the 2016 Biodesign Immersion Experience. Created by Professor Amy Herr and funded by grant from the NIH, the BIE is an 8-week summer program that prepares bioengineers to connect engineering innovation and unmet clinical needs. Students have either recently taken or will be taking BioE 192, the senior […]
Berkeley’s D! team is designing a smartphone app to help type 2 diabetes patients make healthy choices when dining out. The team, made up of students Brian Goodness and Owen Hsiao from the School of Information, MBA students Shahida Abdul Rashid and Howard O, and bioengineer Zach Zeleznick, won first place in the Oct. 24 Hack2Health competition at Berkeley and secured a spot in the upcoming ninth annual Berkeley-Haas Healthcare Conference organized by the student-led Haas Healthcare Association.
Once again Berkeley BioE has been ranked 9th in the nation among undergraduate bioengineering programs by U.S. News & World Report!
UC Berkeley remains the #1 public university and the #3 overall undergraduate engineering program.
We’re proud of you! Watch the 2015 Commencement ceremonies online.
