UW Bioengineering’s chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) has announced its officers for the 2015-16 academic year. The new officers look forward to contributing to and further improving the BioE community.
BioE research intern David Yama defies all conventional stereotypes of a high school dropout. A drive to succeed has enabled him to return to school and discover bioengineering in Assistant Prof. Deok-Ho Kim’s lab. Today, he’s about to graduate with his AA degree and recently received one of the nation’s top honors for community college students.
Researchers in Professor Ruikang Wang’s lab have demonstrated the capabilities of optical coherence tomography (OCT) -based microangiography in detecting high-resolution, three-dimensional structural and microvascular features of human skin affected by acne.
Buddy Ratner, UW professor of bioengineering and chemical engineering and the Michael L. & Myrna Darland Endowed Chair in Technology Commercialization, has been selected as a 2015 Langmuir Lecturer.
