Description:

Discover Bioengineering (DE-BioE) is a week-long residential camp that introduces rising freshman and sophomores to the field of Bioengineering. Bioengineering is all about modeling of systems, design of new technologies and devices for low cost, effective medical care. Bioengineers study and understand how complex biological systems work and how to design and construct medical devices, design better therapeutics, and solve big problems facing society. Here are some of the exciting topics campers will discover:

  • Cell and Tissue Engineering
  • Biomechanics and Prosthetics
  • Imaging and Sensing
  • Therapeutics Engineering
  • Computational and Systems Biology

These topics were covered through lectures, hands-on activities and team projects. Some hands-on activities and projects that campers were involved in included:

  • Cell culture of mammalian cells
  • Motion capture biomechanics
  • Analysis of biomimetic materials
  • Creating genetic models
  • Building biomedical instrumentation
