Greetings! I am a 3rd year PhD student at the UA in Biomedical Engineering. My lab focuses on Biosensors, and I specifically work on low-cost diagnostic methods using paper-based microfluidics. Research is amazing but is also definitely guaranteed to hurt your brain.
I 100% recommend the BME field to anyone who is (1) interested in STEM, programming, writing, arts, etc., and (2) wants to learn how to translate science and tech to real-world applications. There is so much out here waiting to confuse you and teach you. Join us!!
