Biomedical Engineering @ USC
Welcome to the USC Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME)!
Since our early roots as an option within electrical engineering in 1963, we have maintained a longstanding tradition of advancing biomedicine through the development and application of novel engineering ideas. Our department, founded in 1976, includes over 80 primary and affiliated faculty members that conduct cutting-edge research in a wide variety of areas, including neuroengineering, biosystems and biosignal analysis, medical devices and implants, bioimaging and imaging informatics, and systems cellular-molecular bioengineering.
What Is Biomedical Engineering?
Eun Ji Chung featured as “Emerging Investigator 2017” in Biomaterials Science
BME would like to congratulate Eun Ji Chung for being featured in Biomaterials Science’s “Emerging Investigators 2017” issue. Jonathan Wang, one of Chung’s first-year graduate students, is listed as first author on a featured article in the issue. Kudos to both of you, Eun Ji and Jonathan!
Stacey Finley featured on ACS Crowdrise site
Stacey Finley has been awarded an American Cancer Society (ACS) research grant to develop a computer-driven model of molecules that stimulate and inhibit tumor angiogenesis. She is featured on ACS’s “Denim Day” crowdfunding website. Check out Stacey’s proposal as well as this fun initiative to raise money for cancer research!
For Love Of Country
INTRAM, a USC Viterbi student-led team making an app to improve post-stroke care, will represent USC and the U.S. at the NAE’s Grand Challenge business model competition this July.
