Biomedical engineering is a very broad field ranging from finding new ways to treat cancer also treating diseases using novel materials cells using engineered tissue. You don’t just diagnose, but you think about “how can I solve this problem” “What technology, what materials can I use?” We’re always excited every day in the lab, because we’re doing something new so the possibility of making some kind of breakthrough finding is definitely something that makes me want to come in every day. It’s almost like a supplement to healthcare, because You’re getting all the biology you need, and you have the resources to help treat patients in the future. Many of our students are very motivated in their studies because they have a passion to help people with medical problems Collaborating with other people sort of brings the level of work up You gain an appreciation for the differences in people’s backgrounds It’s a human-driven field and we deal with people probably more often than most other engineers. To be able to work with all these students and to get them excited and interested in healthcare problems, applying their engineering laws to solve them We can contribute to helping to improve healthcare. We can contribute to improving the standard of life for many patients. Biomedical engineering here at the University of Arkansas is a great program And it’s going to get bigger in the future, and I think it’s going to be exciting to be a part of.
