The vision of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is to serve as the world's leading society of professionals devoted to developing and using engineering and technology to advance human health and well-being.
The mission of the BMES is to build and support the biomedical engineering community, locally, nationally and internationally, with activities designed to communicate recent advances, discoveries, and inventions; promote education and professional development; and integrate the perspectives of the academic, medical, governmental, and business sectors.

Meet the Officers
Tyler is a senior Bioengineering student on the Medical Product Engineering track. He has done research with 3D printed prosthetics through UPMC and also with stroke rehabilitation devices while in Israel. He has studied abroad in Singapore and co-oped at Philips Respironics. Tyler enjoys traveling, watching football, and being outdoors.
Claire is a junior Bioengineering student on the Medical Product Engineering track, minoring in Mechanical Engineering. She is interested in biomechanics and has done research in this area. She is completing a co-op in the Respiratory Protection group at MSA, The Safety Company. Claire loves spending her free time at the farmers market, walking in Schenley, trying new local coffee shops and restaurants, and has recently taken up crafting projects.
Noah is a junior Bioengineering student on the medical product engineering track. He has interned with Connect Wolf and done research in the Vascular Medicine Institute at UPMC. Noah loves to hike, read, and play soccer. As a part of BMES, Noah strives to one day make the club intramural soccer champions.
Kate is a senior Bioengineering student pursuing a concentration in Cellular Engineering. She currently does research in the Systems Neuroscience Center under Dr. Kolarcik focusing on the neural circuitry of ALS. After graduation, Kate hopes to pursue a career in modernizing public health and health care policy. In her free time, she enjoys reading, going on hikes, and bandwagon-ing onto the nearest available sports team. Go Pens!
Michael is a junior on the cellular engineering track letting his post-graduation plans come whenever they are ready. He has researched in the McGowan Institute focusing on liver regeneration and the Medical School’s Department of Pathology where he now works with CRISPR-based genetic engineering. Interests include getting big, drone videography, and anime (lots of anime). As mentorship chair, he hopes to help students forge connections in the department that he cherished greatly his underclassmen years!
Hey everyone! My name's Keegan and I'm the Social Outreach chair for BMES this year. I'm a sophomore and right now I plan on following the cellular engineering track & going to grad school. Some of my hobbies include crocheting, listening to true crime podcasts, oversharing about Alaska, and reading tarot! I'm super excited to get to know everyone and host some AWESOME social events!
