A number of UW Bioengineering faculty members quickly pivoted and are adapting their research to addressing the needs created by the coronavirus pandemic. From developing rapid at-home tests and protective masks to vaccines and treatments, here is a sampling of some of the ways UW BioE faculty, staff and students are stepping up to help.
The multi-institution Center for Reproducible Biomedical Modeling, led by UW Bioengineering Professor Herbert Sauro, is partnering with top U.S. government agencies to determine how credible several commonly used COVID-19 models are.
UW professors and bioengineering faculty Herbert Sauro, David Baker and Dayong Gao have been named fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
UW Bioengineering faculty member Jay Rubinstein was inducted to the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2019.
Dr. Herbert Sauro is an associate professor of UW Bioengineering and director of the Center of Reproducible Biomedical Modeling. He also teaches a core course on biological control systems in the undergraduate bioengineering curriculum. Read more to learn about how he took an unusual route to academia by following his passion for combining computational modeling and biology.
UW Bioengineering Associate Professor Herbert Sauro will lead the $6.5M NIH-funded Center for Reproducible Biomedical Modeling, which aims to develop more predictive models of biological systems for research and medicine.
In early November, the University of Washington’s student-led undergraduate iGEM team won the silver medal [...]
SoundBio is currently funded via a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant awarded to UW Bioengineering Associate Professor Herbert Sauro to support its science education and outreach efforts.
Bioengineering has become a popular undergraduate major, and the cohort size has grown. New BioE 'families' seek to maintain the cohort's sense of community, and offer undergrads opportunities for leadership, mentoring.
UW Bioengineering faculty, staff and students participated in Engineering Discovery days April 25-26, 2014, teaching bioengineers of all ages through exciting hands-on exhibits and activities.
