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 capstone design course. The BIE summer experience supplements the capstone course with a focus on the needs-finding process and exposure to clinical environments.
The 2016 BIE Fellows are Priya Bhatacharjee, Annika Carlson, Matthew Chan, Jessical Hsueh, Michael Manguianao, Karthik Prasad, Sara Sampson, and Katherine Spack. Congratulations and enjoy your program!
