Current Students & Alumni

We love to hear from our students and alumni! There are plenty of opportunities to stay involved with the Joint BME Department outside the classroom and upon graduation, from attending events and lectures to connecting with us on LinkedIn and social media Instagram and Twitter.


Hunter Reavis, UNC Alum – Class 2016

“After graduation in 2016, I worked as a research technician in a lab at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in the Radiation Oncology department studying DNA damage and repair. This research experience helped me to confirm my passion for cancer biology and in 2018 I began my PhD at the University of Pennsylvania studying the tumor microenvironment of ovarian cancer. BME provided me with a unique perspective in the cancer biology field and I often use many of the approaches and techniques that I learned at UNC!”

Anthony M. Kyu, NC State Undergraduate – Class 2021

“I have a particular interest in prosthetics and robotics. I’m currently the Vice President of NC State’s Cybathlon Team, leading the design of a prosthetic leg for the upcoming competition this September 2020. I’m also the Chief Technology Officer of the Helping Hand Project, responsible for the design and 3D printing of hundreds of body-powered upper-limb prosthetics for children. This year I was awarded an Astronaut Scholarship, after the Joint BME department nominated me. I’m the only NC student among 56 scholarships awarded across 41 universities from around the country.”
