Rather than engineer tools outside the body, what if we could attack diseases from within? Today’s biomedical engineers are doing just that, using cells and molecules to understand and combat diseases from inside the body. Join Dr. Brian Hoffmann and Dr. Brandon Tefft for a discussion on new approaches to creating cutting-edge treatments in diabetes and heart disease.

To revolutionize health care, biomedical engineering advancements must be translated from the lab to the clinic. Join Dr. Guilherme Garcia, Dr. Tucker Woodson, and Dr. John LaDisa to explore innovative ways biomedical engineers are bridging the gap between technology and patient care, from using 3D printing to study obstructive sleep apnea to utilizing virtual reality to familiarize patients with complex procedures.
