As a biomedical engineering major here at Cornell, like many others, I was looking for a way to gain experience outside of my coursework. There are over 10 research labs just in the BME department alone, with each one specializing in a different angle in biomedical research: bone biomechanics, genetic engineering, medical imaging, and many more. I was accepted into a position at the Butcher lab, which focuses on studying the effects of mechanical forces on cardiovascular diseases. My main project within the lab is to make improvements to our 3D bioprinting technology. 3D bioprinting is one of the hot topics in cellular tissue engineering, allowing the printing of complex structures for studying diseases, devices, and someday even living prosthetics.

Hi! My name is Andrew and I’m from Chappaqua, New York. I’m a Sophomore majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a Dyson Business minor. On campus, I’m involved in a variety of organizations. My primary ones are DEBUT, a biomedical device project team, Biomedical Engineering Society, where I’m the Professional Development Chair, and Greek Life, where I’m the Treasurer of my fraternity. My favorite Cornell Dairy Ice cream flavor is hands down Big Red Bear Tracks; there’s just nothing quite like it.
Stephie is a biomedical engineering major (BME) on a pre-MD/PhD track. She is very involved on campus, both in engineering and outside of engineering. Within engineering, she is an undergraduate researcher in the Fischbach Lab, where she models breast cancer spreading to bone, the President of Engineers for a Sustainable World project team, a board member of Tau Beta Pi, and a tutor for freshmen and sophomore engineering courses. Outside of engineering, she is a member of Rise Dance Group and a Leadership Assistant with PCAT, a local patient-oriented hospital volunteering program. Stephie is from West Bloomfield, Michigan, and her favorite spot on campus is Beebe Lake for its lovely running trail!
