New Multidisciplinary Project Team Tackles Current Biomedical Issues

At the intersection of medical research and engineering, Cornell University Biomedical Devices Team works on various projects that can be applied in real-world medical settings. Founded in 2018 by a group of biology students eager for more hands-on work, the team has now grown to three subteams, Product Development, Policy and Practices and Business, consisting of members from many different colleges. “The founding members and I were from Cornell Surgical Society. It was a group of us with a passion for medicine interested in designing surgical devices for possible competitions,” CUBMD project team lead Oscar Liu ’21 said. CUBMD’s goal is to design effective biomedical devices that can conceivably be used in real-life healthcare settings.
