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.”
