About the Department
The Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering was founded in 1962.
Dr. Elliot McVeigh was appointed Massey Professor and Director of the department in 2007. In June 2015, he stepped down as director and was replaced by Dr. Leslie Tung, who is serving as the interim director until a permanant director has been appointed.
The ongoing vision for the department is to produce new knowledge from outstanding laboratories and facilitate the transfer of that knowledge into patient care at the fastest pace possible.
