Duke BME Magazine
INAUGURAL ISSUE | FALL 2017
Serving a Global Community:
The Worldwide Impact of Duke BME
I’m thrilled to share the inaugural issue of Duke BME Magazine, a new publication intended to highlight the various strengths of Duke Biomedical Engineering.
We believe that the goal of engineering is to provide service to a global society, and our efforts to meet this goal are evident in the projects we pursue, from the development of novel, non-invasive screening and diagnostic tools to the creation of international educational BME programs.
In this issue, we chose to highlight the global reach of the department through stories that illustrate the human and scientific impact of our work in global health. We hope that you find these stories interesting, instructive and inspiring.
