A gift from Mary Louise Miller, wife of the late engineer and entrepreneur Dr. Dane Miller, will name the headship of Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering as part of Ever True: The Campaign for Purdue University.
Craig Goergen, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, Meng Deng, assistant professor of biomedical, agricultural and biological engineering, and Ramses Martinez, assistant professor of biomedical and industrial engineering have been selected as recipients of the 2016-2017 Teaching for Tomorrow Award.
Technology developed at Purdue University is expected to soon change the lives of amputees with bionic limbs. These robotic prosthetics have traditionally been controlled by electrodes that sit on the skin to record signals from the muscle. Purdue researchers have developed tiny electrodes that, instead, are buried inside the muscle. It's a development a Chicago-based startup describes as "game-changing" for bionic limbs.
Shelley Claridge, assistant professor of chemistry and biomedical engineering, received the 2016 Exceptional Early Career Award in recognition of outstanding undergraduate teaching and is featured in this Q&A.
Purdue University junior Shovik Bandyopadhyay is a new 2016 Goldwater Scholar. Goldwater Scholarship recipients are undergraduate students who already conduct research in their fields and show promise for the future. Bandyopadhyay has conducted research in the lab of Ji-Xin Cheng, a professor of biomedical engineering and chemistry.
Sherry Harbin, a professor of biomedical engineering and basic medical sciences, has been named a University Faculty Scholar. This honor recognizes outstanding faculty who are on an accelerated path for academic distinction in the discovery and dissemination of knowledge.
