The BME Grad Podcast
Joint BME graduate Allie Mitzak and Brian Kim host The BME Grad Podcast to help students with a biomedical engineering background. First launched in January 2021, Mitzak and Cronin host guests working in product engineering, manufacturing, management, marketing, clinical, regulatory, and entrepreneurship roles. Through their interviews, they discuss job roles, advice, and other relevant topics for career paths in medical device, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
Hunter Reavis ‘16 – UNC-Chapel Hill
“After graduation in 2016, I worked as a research technician studying DNA damage and repair in the Radiation Oncology Department at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
This research experience helped me 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 cancer biology, and I often use many of the approaches and techniques that I learned at UNC!”
Anthony M. Kyu ‘21 – NC State
“Throughout my undergraduate career at BME, I saw a need for more robotic innovations to improve the prosthetics field and other medical-related disciplines, including surgical robotics. I was the Chief Technology Officer of the Helping Hand Project at NC State, where I was responsible for the design and production of hundreds of body-powered upper-limb prosthetics for children.
I’m currently pursuing a M.S. Program in Robotic Systems Development at the Carnegie Mellon University, the nation’s oldest and most established Robotics Institute.”
