Biomedical Engineering at Vanderbilt is 45. Birthday cake for 1,000 of our friends. Please join us and celebrate the anniversary of one of the longest running programs in the country.
One of the earliest biomedical engineering programs in the United States, Vanderbilt’s Department of Biomedical Engineering is celebrating its 45th anniversary as a program and its 25th anniversary as a department in the School of Engineering.
BME Week, commemorating these two milestones, kicks off Monday, Oct. 21, with a Birthday Bash, 2:30 to 4 p.m. in Adams Atrium in Featheringill Hall, followed by a seminar delivered by faculty who were key leaders in the formation of biomedical engineering at Vanderbilt. Leading the seminar and a panel discussion is Thomas Harris, Orrin Henry Ingram Distinguished Professor of Engineering, Emeritus. Harris also is emeritus professor of biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and medicine.
