Biomedical engineering at Georgia Tech has risen from a handful of projects to national prominence in just two decades. Today, more than half of all incoming freshman pursue a degree in biomedical engineering, biochemistry, or biology.
Georgia Tech is one of the country’s top engineering schools for many reasons, one of which is its ability to address global issues and produce innovations through student showcases.
Some day, Yogi Patel expects to enjoy the best of both worlds – starting a successful company while enjoying a career in academia. Apparently, ‘some day’ may not be very far off for Patel, a third-year Ph.D. student in the Wallace H.
If there was a recurring theme at the first UCB-Georgia Tech Day, it was this bit of common sense: You rarely end up where you start in a career.
Needles almost too small to be seen with the unaided eye could be the basis for new treatment options for two of the world’s leading eye diseases: glaucoma and corneal neovascularization.
Charlie Kemp is giving robots common sense. And that’s good news for Californian Henry Evans.

The Atlantic Pediatric Device Consortium (APDC) is pleased to announce its 4th annual Pediatric Device Innovation Competition.
The pointy things that most of us try to avoid hold a strange attraction for Candice Cheung who isn’t afraid of getting shots or giving blood. In fact, these experiences are almost like a field trip for the third-year student in the Wallace H.
If you have a promising technological innovation to improve patient care, than you might want to be in the Suddath Seminar Room in the Parker H. Petit Biotech Building this Tuesday, November 11, from 11 to noon.
DNA bricks keep getting larger. In 2012, a team of researchers at Harvard described their ability to make self-assembling structures –made completely out of DNA — that were about the size of viruses (80 nanometers across).
Elephant toothpaste was overflowing on the bio quad lawn while flash-frozen flowers shattered in shards on the pavement outside the U.A. Whitaker Biomedical Engineering Building. Inside the Parker H.

There were moments when the first Biomaterials Day at the Georgia Institute of Technology resembled a Vaudeville comedy routine, like when three of the top scientists in the field morphed into the Three Stooges for a few seconds while mugging for a photo, reflecting the festive side of an event t
Emily Evans plans to join the Peace Corps, and perhaps go on to become an emergency room trauma surgeon. But first, she’ll finish up her undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering at Georgia Tech.
Robert Butera and Lena Ting were there at the beginning, when neuroengineering started becoming a serious thing at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
