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 Alum – Class 2021

“Throughout my undergraduate career at BME, I saw a need for more robotic innovations to not only improve the prosthetics field, but also other medical-related fields, including surgical robotics. For 3 years, I was the Chief Technology Officer of the Helping Hand Project at NC State, responsible for the design and 3D printing 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.”
