Message from the Director
Elliot McVeigh

I am excited to share our recent faculty appointments, research highlights, student news, and department activities, including the opening of our BME Design Studio.

We recently used the BME Design Studio to host the Emergency Ebola Design Challenge, a collaborative Johns Hopkins University effort to develop better ways to protect health workers on the front lines of the Ebola epidemic. This is just one example of how our community harnesses its expertise to address issues of critical global importance.

We just held an alumni event in Washington, D.C., and plan to travel to San Francisco soon. In the meantime, keep us informed about your news.

Sincerely,

Elliot R. McVeigh, PhD
Massey Professor and Director
