A simple gesture a decade ago by the inaugural graduating class of Purdue University's Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering will leave a lasting legacy on the celebrated program and its global reputation.
Purdue University announced Tuesday (Nov. 14) that it is a Grand Challenges Explorations winner, an initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Craig Goergen, assistant professor in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, is one of two College of Engineering professors who will pursue innovative global health and development research projects.
For graduate students seeking a career in implantable devices, Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering should be on the short list. Large, comprehensive, and well-funded, the electroceutical research program is a prime training ground for students in engineering, biomedical and computer science fields.
Integrated, holistic research efforts are key to success, and the Weldon School's close ties to the Purdue Institute for Integrated Neuroscience
(PINN) demonstrate that engineering and biology make an excellent fit.
Advancing Purdue University's deep engineering strengths for developing scalable solutions, researchers in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering are partnering with scientists and others to apply those creative discoveries to improve global health and enhance our quality of life.
Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering welcomes three new faculty members in 2017-18, and we are still actively recruiting. The faculty growth corresponds to an ongoing transformative period of expansion in the school's educational programs, research capabilities, and industry outreach.
