Biomedical Engineering at the University of South Carolina resides at the intersection
of engineering and medicine. With interdisciplinary
faculty from the College of Engineering and Computing, the School of Medicine and Departments
of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, and Pharmacy, we collaborate to provide research and education that advances medicine and gives our students learning opportunities both within
and beyond the classroom.
Research Spotlight: Research aims to increase drug delivery from devices for vascular
Drug coated balloons are an established technology and have a history of use, despite
low drug delivery efficiency. To increase the device's effectiveness, Mechanical and
Biomedical Engineering Associate Professor Tarek Shazly is part of an NIH-funded grant
to make design improvements.
Faculty Spotlight: Mungo undergraduate teaching award winner: Melissa Moss
As a professor of chemical and biomedical engineering, Melissa Moss combines both
engineering theory and hands-on learning in the classroom. She was chosen as a Mungo
undergraduate teaching award winner.
Undergraduate Student Spotlight: Class of 2021: Sydney Womack
Sydney Womack’s calendar has been booked nearly solid during her four years at South
Carolina and little wonder — she majored in biomedical engineering, minored in mathematics,
earned a performance certificate in the School of Music, conducted undergraduate research
and co-authored a scholarly article and three poster presentations.
Graduate Student Spotlight: Students set for Bridge to Doctorate program
The first 12 students accepted into the University's Bridge to Doctorate program bring
diverse life experiences but share a common commitment to science and community.
Alumni Spotlight: Alumni Q & A: How Myra Robinson turns health care data into hope
Myra Robinson is a senior statistician at the Levine Cancer Institute (LCI) in Charlotte,
NC. By day, you can find her consulting with clinicians and researchers on clinical
trial designs, overseeing the status of open-to-accrual clinical trials, processing
