‘Biodesign’ course teams UNM engineering students, faculty with UNM physician

By Lynn Lessard | September 14, 2015
A new three-credit course at the University of New Mexico’s School of Engineering is giving two student teams the chance to shadow a trauma surgeon, identify clinical problems and brainstorm solutions that could lead to research funding of up to $50,000, plus a patent application. Biodesign uniquely pairs a practicing physician with engineering faculty members to guide student teams in crystalizing one idea - from lab prototype to clinical product - over the course of 16 weeks.
