About

The field focuses on both the molecular and macroscopic aspects of biomedical engineering and comprises five research areas: biomedical instrumentation; drug delivery, design and metabolism; biomaterials; computational and systems biology; and medical biomechanics. The Biomedical Engineering program is offered by Cornell University.

Overview

Education

  • The educational goal of the BME Graduate Field is to produce future leaders of BME who are able to able to apply quantitative methods across multiple spatial and temporal scales in order to solve problems related to human health.
  • A person can have an impact only through communication and so the BME Graduate Field emphasizes written, spoken, and presentation communication skills.  A student in the Field will acquire and practice these skills pervasively throughout their program, e.g., in course work, A and B exams, teaching, publishing research papers, etc.
  • Ethical issues are important in all domains but especially so in BME because of the proximity to human health.  Discussion of these issues arise in many contexts during the first year, e.g., in the Summer Immersion Term. The successful completion of the Responsible Conduct of Research unit online is required of all students.
The Biomedical Engineering program is offered by Cornell University.
