Inventing the Future of Medicine. That’s not just a tagline. That’s something we actively do and pursue every day in the labs, classrooms and halls of the UW Department of Bioengineering. UW BioE is one of the top-ranked biomedical engineering departments in the U.S., based on a consistent history of innovative research programs, and top-10 ranked educational programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

A joint department of both the UW School of Medicine and the UW College of Engineering, UW BioE has a long history of successful translational research, and our alumni populate many of the world’s premier universities and companies in a wide range of bioengineering-related businesses.

Launched in 2012, the mission of the UW BioE Affiliates Program is to enhance interaction between members of the bioengineering industry and UW Bioengineering. We create opportunities to advise and share industry expertise, learn about emerging areas of research, collaborate on mutually beneficial projects, and recruit students.
