A University of Virginia biomedical engineering student is trying to tackle the world’s No. 1 cause of death on a genetic level.
We start with a focus on biology.
Whether we are modeling or engineering cells and tissues, analyzing large datasets, developing new imaging technologies, or synthesizing novel biomaterials, the problem statement always starts with the biology underlying the system, therapy, or disease process.
Our co-location within the highly-ranked UVA School of Medicine and UVA Health System uniquely positions us to influence the future of healthcare. Our culture values and rewards collaboration, initiative, and the translation of basic advances to achieve clinical and real world impact. In all that we do, we value and strive for diversity and inclusion.
