Full Summary: GT/Emory BME's Senior Research Design Poster Session

Atlanta medical/research community members are invited to attend the Georgia Tech/Emory Biomedical Engineering’s Senior Research Design poster session.

Attendees may speak with students about completed projects and submit new ideas for future projects to improve a clinical or surgical product or technique.

About the program
The Biomedical Engineering (BME) program at Georgia Tech/Emory continuously seeks projects and faculty advisors from the Atlanta medical/research community for its senior capstone design course. If you have a clinical or surgical oriented idea or "problem," you can work with a team of senior BME students in developing and testing a potential solution. BME has student team projects beginning in the summer (May), fall (August) and winter (January) semesters.

Previous advisors have found working with a student team very rewarding in learning about the phases of: design research; generation of engineering alternatives; prototyping and testing; and the FDA 510(k) regulatory pathway for medical device clearance.

Examples of past projects include:

  • Intergraded surgical patient monitoring device to reduce "cable clutter"
  • Wearable personal activity device for predictive healthcare
  • Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) improvement for hemodialysis access
  • Defibrillator designed for small animals used in clinical investigative studies
  • Safety device for central venous line insertion

In exchange for having a team of students work on your particular problem, you are asked to provide about 10-12 hours of your time during a semester on the following:

  • 2-3 meetings a semester with your project team
  • Provide feedback on project deliverables and team reports
  • End of semester assessment of team's performance
  • If possible, attend the end of semester project presentation
