    About Us

    The mission of the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) is to unite engineering and medicine to save and improve lives.

    That mission inspired Dr. Devin Hubbard and his team to develop new PPE masks to address shortages of pediatric PPE due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “The BME team has provided an invaluable resource for our pediatric patients in the Children’s Hospital,” said Benny L. Joyner, Jr., MD, MPH, chief of pediatric critical care medicine, vice chair of hospital inpatient services, and associate professor of pediatric critical care medicine. “We are inspired by the BME team’s flexibility, ingenuity, and generosity of time and talent.”

    BME’s mission inspired undergraduate students to answer the call of a research project of the Army’s 75th Ranger Regimen.  Students presented their research, “Longevity of Blood: Researching the ability to increase whole blood shelf-life in combat zones and the possibility of developing a way for all blood types for universal donation” won second place among 12 Capstone Projects and 13 universities represented at the inaugural Academic Research Symposium.

    The student CYBATHLON team was inspired to design, build and program their own prosthetic leg to compete in the international CYBATHLON competition.

    Your support during GiveUNC and throughout the year can help each student realize their own vision of innovation and help fulfill BME’s mission of uniting engineering and medicine to improve lives.
