BMES Student Chapter

The Biomedical Engineering Society at Washington University in St. Louis is a group of talented students interested in careers in biomedical sciences.

As an organization, we seek to promote professional development and help students discover and explore their academic and professional interests. We also hope to foster camaraderie within the biomedical engineering community and facilitate communication and networking opportunities between students, faculty and professors.
