The Department of Bioengineering has been awarded a 5-year grant by the National Institutes of Health to support our senior Bioengineering design course.
The grant for “Team-Based Design in Biomedical Engineering Education” will enhance and significantly extend our BioE 192 core project-based course and engage our graduating seniors in an immersive educational experience. The combined lecture and experiential training will provide a comprehensive introduction to project design in translational medicine, supplementing theoretical knowledge with hands-on clinical work.
The Bioengineering Capstone Design Course partners with clinicians at UCSF to coach project-based teams of undergraduates in solving real clinical device problems. The capstone design course is taught by grant PI Assistant Professor Amy Herr.
Congratulations Amy and BioE 192!
