Stanford Biomedical Engineering society

Promoting, enhancing, and supporting the growth of biomedical engineering at Stanford University

 

ABOUT US

WE ARE

diverse group of students, all with one common interest – how our field can be applied to biology. We bring together students from a variety of majors – bioengineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, management science, etc. – and expose them to the highest quality programs, showing them all the different ways their skills could be used for biology applications.

OUR MISSION

is to promoteenhance, and support the growth of biomedical engineering at Stanford University by creating networking opportunities for students with faculty and industry professionals, cultivating interest in careers in bioengineering, and allowing students to see the vast possibilities and opportunities available at Stanford.

To get involved, join our mailing list here.

If you have questions, contact Cindy Liu at cliu15@stanford.edu, Alex Maben at alexm4@stanford.edu, or James Hu at jameshu@stanford.edu.

PROGRAMS

Academia

Connects students with Stanford faculty from various departments to learn about research, classes, and other events in academia. Hosts faculty lunches, journal clubs, lab tours, and interesting case studies in specific technologies or business.

Advising

Organizes initiatives designed to help students learn more about bio-related fields. Hosts majors panels, where members can hear from upperclassmen about their experiences in different bio-related majors, and a mentorship program, where members are matched with graduate student mentors.

Industry

Exposes students to opportunities and information about bio-related industry. Hosts panels/talks with industry leaders, company tours/trips. Also sends Stanford students to the National BMES Conference, where students can present their own research and attend talks/workshops.

Operations

Handles communications and logistics for the organization. Maintains the BMES website and social media accounts, creates flyers for events, and releases a quarterly BMES newsletter.

Financial

Manages the finances for the organization. Secures funding and manages the organizational budget for our events and programs.
