Greetings from Aggieland! While 2021 has brought its share of new challenges, the faculty, staff and students in biomedical engineering at Texas A&M University are continuing to impact health outcomes throughout the year. Our research efforts are resulting in promising strides toward improvements in application areas, including trauma care, pediatric devices and chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. The success of our former students continues to impress as they receive accolades from their professional societies, promotions within their companies and grant funding for their start-up ventures.
We are looking forward to enhancing the experiential aspects of our curriculum through the new design studio that will support our emphasis on hands-on device prototyping and testing work starting this fall. This investment has been made possible by the engagement and generous support of many former students, companies and philanthropic supporters
— we are so grateful for their continued help that will enable further growth in people and programs, providing even greater opportunities for impact. Please visit our website or come visit us in person to see firsthand how our plans are coming together to make a difference in the world. Take care and be well.
