A Message from the Director
Massey Professor and Director of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University
Welcome to the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins.
The faculty and students in this department 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 450 undergraduates and over 250 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.
You are welcome to come and visit! Baltimore is a great place to live. I came here from Toronto to spend one year at Hopkins — that was in 1988.The exciting research environment and great people make for a wonderful and enriching experience.
