Humans of UW Bioengineering
The student-led Humans of UW Bioengineering project offers an inside perspective of the department’s student experience, direct from students themselves.
Alyssa is an undergraduate senior in BioE, and is double-majoring in computer engineering. She is working in a biomechanics lab led by Dr. William Ledoux, where she investigates how certain joints are affected before and after ankle replacement surgery. She also is part of the Right Brain Campaign and volunteers at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Learn more about her experiences at UW and how she balances all of her activities.
Preston is an undergraduate junior in bioengineering, and he is interested in the electrical engineering/programming aspects of bioengineering. Read more about how his experiences in and out of BioE, and being in a competitive major, have shaped his interests and goals.
Sam Krahling is a senior in the Max Lab in the Speech and Hearing Sciences Department, and plans to go into consulting and potentially pursue an MBA in the future. Her activities range far beyond BioE, including becoming ordained to marry her housemates.
Soren Johnson is a senior in bioengineering currently doing research in Dr. Suzie Pun’s lab. His work involves developing nonviral methods for efficient and stable gene transfer in renal progenitor cells. Upon graduation he plans on working in industry after hiking across the United States along the Pacific Crest Trail.
UW Bioengineering students excel in research, leadership and service. Read on to learn how our students are inventing the future of medicine.
UW Bioengineering Ph.D. student Charles Roco is co-lead author on a paper published Mar. 15 in Science that reports on SPLiT-seq — or Split Pool Ligation-based Transcriptome sequencing — a new method to classify and track different types of cells in tissue sample.
The 2018 Department of Bioengineering Graduation Celebration will be held on Friday, June 8th in Hogness Auditorium. All BIOE students who will be graduating Autumn 2017, Winter 2018, Spring 2018 or Summer 2018 are eligible to participate.

New study abroad program in Nepal to explore clinical needs and technology solutions for global health
UW BioE's new exploration seminar "Bioengineering Nepal: Technology Development for Global Health" will introduce students to needs, solutions and challenges that impact health care delivery.
This year, an anonymous UW Bioengineering alumna generously donated the required funding to establish a new endowed scholarship in honor of Kelli Jayn Nichols. Nichols served the BioE department from October 2000, until her retirement in June 2016 as Director of Academic Services.
