David W. Grainger, Ph.D.Thanks for visiting us in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Utah!  Throughout these pages you can learn about our diverse undergraduate and graduate degree programs, our bright opportunities for future careers, our resources and leading faculty experts, and about biomedical engineering research at one of the oldest programs in the country.

We are dedicated to continual discovery and dissemination of important new knowledge and innovation; teaching, training and mentoring of the BME future experts, entrepreneurs, and technical leaders, and efficient translation of impacting BME concepts, creativity and progress to improve the human condition.

More than 120 graduate and more than 250 undergraduate students are annually engaged in the study of important biomedical problems using resources and strategies from engineering, biology, biomedical sciences and medicine.

Students and postdoctoral trainees gain exposure to the latest ideas and techniques emerging and prominent in biomedical engineering, while developing cross-disciplinary expertise through the collective teachings and mentoring of our accomplished faculty participating in our program from Utah’s John and Marcia Price College of Engineering and School of Medicine.

Our faculty members’ broad, relevant BME research interests allow our Utah students diverse, compelling research opportunities in their training. We draw faculty expertise from our 22 core BME faculty and over 120 adjunct faculty associated with our program across campus.  Utah’s integrated campus conveniently houses the highest density of accessible research resources across the biomedical sciences and engineering disciplines.  Additionally, the exceptional, very livable Utah lifestyle provides our faculty, staff and students immediate accessibility to recreational and cultural amenities in an outstanding intermountain west climate.  The Utah balance for training, work and play is superb!

We invite you to explore our BME website!  Please reach out to the Department of Biomedical Engineering with any questions about our mission, our resources, our expertise and our programs.

Best wishes,

David W. Grainger, Ph.D.
