Dr. Baowei Fei organized a Special Panel Session on Engineering Medicine at the BMES Meeting

At the Annual Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), Dr. Baowei Fei organized a Special Panel Session entitled “A new era of engineering medicine – how to educate the next generation of biomedical engineers” and invited national leaders in the space of bioengineering and engineering medicine to discuss the emerging trend on how to educate and train our next generation of biomedical engineers, how to shape and advance the science and technology of bioengineering through innovative research and inspiring education, and how to engage faculty, researchers, and students to play leading roles from basic science discovery to the creation, clinical evolution, and commercialization of new technologies, devices and therapies to improve human health. In a new era of precision medicine, engineering and medicine are converging to solve complex biological and medical problems. Biomedical engineering and computing will be a leading force where quantitative methods of engineering and systems sciences will have a pivotal role in disease detection, diagnostics, and treatment.
