The Princeton Biomedical Engineering Society (PBMES) seeks to provide resources and guidance to all students interested in biomedical and biological engineering. PBMES is the Princeton University chapter of the national Biomedical Engineering Society.
Bioengineering, the application of engineering principles to biology, is a tremendously interdisciplinary field, and has been responsible for medical advances from pacemakers and MRI machines to artificial organs, angioplasty, and time-release drug capsules. To name just a few areas within this field, bioengineering includes bio-instrumentation; bio-materials; biomechanics, cellular, tissue, and genetic engineering; clinical engineering; medical imaging; orthopedic bioengineering; rehabilitation engineering; and systems physiology.
Primarily, PBMES provides:
1) Resources for students interested in studying bioengineering as part of their undergraduate career.
2) Resources for students interested in pursuing bioengineering through a career in industry or graduate school.
3) Speakers and events relating to bioengineering.
4) Opportunities to participate in bioengineering research.
Membership is open to all who have an interest in the field of biomedical engineering. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in being added to our email list.
