A career in biomedical engineering provides:
A team of researchers, led by Toloo Taghian (Physics PhD student) and Dr. Daria Narmoneva (Associate Professor of Biomedical Eng) are gaining media attention for their work on chronic wounds. They discovered that externally applied low-amplitude electric fields can help hard-to-heal wounds, like those associated with diabetes, where there is insufficient blood supply and drug treatments are not effective.
Tyler Fosnight (BME graduate student, advisor: Dr. Doug Mast) has received a Grant in Aid of Research from the UC chapter of Sigma Xi for his project "“An infrared system for measuring tissue temperature during radiofrequency ablation in real-time.”
Dr. Jing-Huei Lee was awarded promotion.
Matthew Johnson (BME undergraduate student) has been selected to participate in the NSF Academic-Year Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program being run by Prof. Ghia. The REU program is an educational opportunity that supports undergraduate student research in any of the areas funded by the National Science Foundation.
