    About Us

    Your support helps fulfill the Joint Biomedical Engineering Department’s mission of uniting engineering and medicine to make an immediate impact in improving lives. Beyond research, our students get valuable practical experience in addressing some of the world’s most urgent needs and challenges. Last fall, a student team developed and built a real prosthetic leg, semi-powered and cable-driven, to participate in the international CYBATHLON competition. Since the COVID outbreak, BME faculty and students have identified innovative solutions to the face mask shortage: repurposing adult sized masks into pediatric masks for UNC Health and the Children’s Hospital; and also designing a frame device that goes over an existing mask as an alternative to N95 masks. By investing in our programs, faculty and students, you are joining us in realizing our ambitious vision of becoming a leader in real-world results.
