Center for Engineering MechanoBiology (CEMB)

We are actively recruiting graduate students for 2017 (both first years who want to join center labs, and students currently applying who would join the center after year 1). Many people in BE (Rebecca Wells, Rick Assoian, Rob Mauck, and Paul Janmey) are in the center, such as Jason Burdick, Dan Huh, Vivek Shenoy, Dennis Discher, Susan Margulies, and Beth Winklestein.

Penn BMES Wins Best Chapter Award at National BMES

This last summer (2015) the BMES Executive Board and our faculty advisor, Dr. Beth Winkelstein travelled to the BMES 2015 Annual Meeting in Tampa, FL to accept the prestigious BMES Student Chapter Meritorious Chapter Award! Penn BMES was selected after submitting a Chapter Development Report containing details on activities and events hosted by our chapter throughout the year. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our Penn Bioengineering Community!
