Giving to the Department of Biomedical Engineering

The focus of the Department of Biomedical Engineering research and education programs is to improve health care delivery through discovery of new knowledge, development of novel medical devices and therapeutics and training students to advance healthcare in the 21st century. As faculty and staff in the BME department strive to provide quality education, research and experiential learning opportunities for students, we often requires resources that are not available through tuition or research grants and contracts.  We need your philanthropic support to continue our growth, to expand the educational opportunities for students and improve the prominence of the BME Department.  For example, we need additional resources to recruit and support graduate students; particularly for new faculty hires or for new research directions where extramural grants and contract do not yet exist.  Support for our undergraduate program will provide for necessary updates and improvements to our lab facilities and senior design courses, student participation in undergraduate research, as well as professional development activities for students such as research conference participation or plant visits.  Select additional needs include resources to support faculty and staff professional development, facilities and equipment upgrades and outreach activities.  The continued success of the BME department depends on your partnership with us.
