In a recent article by Gary Moss, the University Gazette at UNC showcased the exciting work being done within our own Biomedical Engineering department. The interview with Dr. Allbritton comments on the necessity of interdisciplinary research as well as the economic impact that biomedical engineering programs can have. The feature on the department highlights Biomedical Engineering’s strategy of combining the strengths of three well-regarded individual institutions—the College of Arts & Sciences and School of Medicine at UNC and the College of Engineering at NC State. The article contains not only an interview with Professor Allbritton, but also features others in our department—Zhen Gu, Helen Huang, Frances Ligler, and Andrew DiMeo.
