The BME Grad Podcast

Joint BME hosts a bi-weekly podcast called The BME Grad Podcast to help students with early career decisions in biomedical engineering. First launched in January 2021 by podcast founder and Joint BME alumna Allie Mitzak, the podcast interviews guests in manufacturing, management, marketing, clinical, regulatory, and entrepreneurship positions.

In 2023, Allie approached the Joint Department with the idea of moving the podcast permanently to Joint BME with the hope that the legacy of the podcast could continue, while also supporting its growth to reach a broad audience of biomedical engineers across the US and abroad.  In 2024, new host Devin Hubbard, teaching associate professor in the Joint Department, officially launched season 3 of the podcast with a focus on job roles, advice, and other relevant topics for career paths in medical device, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

 

Testimonials

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

Anthony Kyu

“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.”
