The Johns Hopkins University Department of Biomedical Engineering would like to thank you, its alumni, for your continued support of BME and JHU. We look forward to using this section of our website to share with you current BME news, events, activities, resources and alumni engagement opportunities as well as periodically featuring our distinguished BME alumni. We recognize that our alumni play a vital role in the continued success of the department and hope that you will use this site as a resource to remain connected.
The mission of the JHU Department of Biomedical Engineering is to improve human health through excellence in research and education at the interface of engineering, biology and medicine
Message from the Director
Professor and Interim Director of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University
Faculty and students of the Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Enginerring have been breaking new ground in biomedical research for over 50 years and we strive to continue this history of innovation and discovery every day. More than 480 undergraduates and over 238 graduate students are enrolled in the Hopkins BME program, preparing themselves for careers in medicine, basic science, and industry. Each year a new class of 120 students from a stellar candidate pool, accept our offer of admission. The academic level of the program is extremely challenging — giving the best and brightest students an opportunity to obtain the most comprehensive training in biomedical engineering available.
For our graduate programs, students are permitted to select any Hopkins faculty as a thesis advisor. We believe that both our students and the Johns Hopkins research mission are served best by placing our students in multidisciplinary teams, and we encourage them to find these opportunities
Our faculty members are world leaders in their respective fields of research which range from theoretical modeling of the machinery of the cell to the fabrication and implantation of engineered tissues in humans. I encourage you to explore the faculty research labs and reviews some of their publications.

BME values the engagement of its alumni. The department benefits in many ways from your support. For example: BME in the Real World provides undergraduate students the opportunity to hear about your experiences and successes since graduating from BME; our Ph.D. students have an opportunity to gain industry knowledge and experience from alumni through the new BME EDGE Center; the BME department, through its Advisory Committee, benefits from the commitment of our alumni committee members; and many of our programs continue to succeed because of your generous financial support. Thank you for your continued support of the BME department. Contact us to learn more about alumni engagement opportunities.
BME in the Real World
BME in the Real World is an undergraduate course that is open only to engineering students. This course involves a series of weekly lectures to inform students about careers in biomedical engineering and to discuss technological, social, ethical, legal, and economic issues relevant to the profession.
JHU BME EDGE
BME EDGE is a new departmental center established to invigorate doctoral education by facilitating internships for PhD students and providing professional development training through internships and workshops. For more information on this new center, visit BME EDGE today.
