The Biomedical Engineering Department and Center for Biomedical Informatics at Wake Forest University will offer 10-week summer undergraduate research opportunities in 2020. Students selected for this Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program will receive a stipend and on-campus housing.
Exciting research opportunities include over 30 biomedical engineering and informatics projects offered by 20 different faculty on topics, including:
Injury prediction model development
Military, sports and spaceflight safety
Biomechanical characterization of injury mechanisms
The Wake Forest University School of Medicine Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) and Center for Biomedical Informatics focus on strengthening Wake Forest's research, education and clinical missions through the pioneering of engineering principles and biomedical informatics to improve human health. Over the past 15 years, 181 undergraduate summer interns have conducted biomedical engineering and informatics research at Wake Forest School of Medicine.
BME is also a prominent track within the graduate school, with 45 graduate students, nearly one fourth of the graduate school in the School of Medicine. BME has 11 primary faculty, 27 core faculty, and 14 affiliate faculty at WFU with a total of about $20 million in research funding per year. The Center for Biomedical Informatics is directed by Dr. Metin Gurcan, and 6 additional faculty are involved in leadership of the center. These faculty advise several graduate and undergraduate students.
