Hours Per Week

Design, build, and test an ultrasound system for sonication of cells.

Determine whether ultrasound can promote normal cellular behaviors that could be used to treat an atherosclerotic or diseased artery. Learn numerous techniques used in the field of bioengineering, including ultrasound, CAD, computational modeling, cell culture, and microscopy. Join a team that is working in the exciting technical areas of mechanobiology, regenerative medicine, and tissue engineering to make an impact in the fields of cardiovascular medicine, diabetes, wound healing, and ophthalmology.
