Sarah Rooney, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, has received a five-year, $21,600 per year, NIH R25 grant to support the design of a new undergraduate course. The course, “BMEG260 Introduction to Medical Device Design,” will be required in the curriculum for this year’s incoming first-year students when they are sophomores (spring 2023). The first iteration of the course will be offered as an elective in spring 2022 and will focus on three different medical devices: surgical staplers, breast pumps and stents.
