Bioelectricity and Instrumentation (BEI)

Emphasis Area Advisor: Tay Netoff

Description

In BEI, we seek to record, process, image, and control biomedical signals and develop instrumentation for biological research and medical applications. Specific examples of bioelectricity and instrumentation include:

Upon graduation, students in the BEI Emphasis Area have gone on to graduate school, medical school, and employment in industry.
