Mission

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

Interim Director Les Tung
Leslie Tung
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.

If you have any general questions about the department please contact us today.

 

Alumni Engagement

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.
