Super-September

BMES GIM (September 8, 2020)

The General Interest Meeting took place on September 8th in virtual format. Even with the new format, everything worked out perfectly – BMES had a very large meeting with more than 20 new members. We spent time sharing our missions and how each of us caught our interest in BME. It was really great to meet new people and introduce to them how we play our roles in contributing to UofR BMES and the BMES Chapter in general. We hope our GIM was enjoying to each of you as it was to us and we would be looking forward to seeing you in our next meeting. Stay safe!

Graduate School Panel (September 10, 2020)

The Graduate School Panel, hosted by Department of Biomedical Engineering and BMES, took place Sep.10th, 2020. This panel was completely virtual this year but was very successful.

The panel started by Professor Learner included Professor Maddox talking about the graduate and PhD programs and differences between them. This year, we also had additional BME alumni and graduate students from UR attend the panel as well. They shared a lot of information and insight into choosing appropriate graduate programs. Great questions were asked and answered at the end of the panel and students found this event very helpful.

P.S. For those that are interested but weren’t able to attend the panel, recordings of this panel will be posted on our website soon.

A Message From Dr. Judy Principe

Happy Wednesday to you all and welcome back to Rochester. It’s time for our BME Faculty Features.
.
It is Judy Principe, our graduate/program coordinator for the Center of Medical Technology and Innovation (CMTI), which resides in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. The CMTI is a specialized one year masters degree program that focuses on the creation of a device design.
.
Having been working 8 years in the position, Judy has some advice for students with most of the learning being online this year. She also shares some photos of her family that captured the true Meliora spirit.
.
“For the students, my advice would be that they are making history by being a class that went through the ever changing COVID experience, and you should be proud of all you are accomplishing during these challenging times. You are our future, and you will make a positive difference!”
-Judy Principe
