Congratulations Rariety Monford!

Rariety Monford

Rariety Monford, a Cincinnati, OH native and graduating senior in the Department of Bioengineering, has become the N.C. A&T Campus Ambassador for Abbott Laboratories. After completing two internships at Abbott (one Manufacturing Internship in Chicago, IL and a Quality Internship in Santa Ana, CA), she was also selected to enter Abbott’s Operations Professional Development Program. This 3-year management program involves assignments in the US and aboard, which will provide a breadth of knowledge of Abbott’s business units in roles within manufacturing, quality, and engineering.


COE Students Learn Through Clinical Immersion Experience at UNC Memorial Hospital

UNC Memorial

COE students spent two weeks at UNC Memorial Hospital in Chapel Hill shadowing doctors and clinicians as part of A&T’s first Clinical Immersion Experience. Kierra Fleming, Lauren Florence, Marlayna Jackson, Rina Mudanyi and Jerria Turner witnessed firsthand the clinical needs of physicians, rehabilitation professionals and nurses as they relate to bio engineering applications. Congrats everyone!


M. Paulette Foster Presents Ted Talk at NSBE Convention

Paulette Foster

M. Paulette Foster, a third semester Biomedical Engineering Masters student, traveled to Boston, MA to compete in the Technical Research Exhibition at the 42nd Annual Convention of NSBE. She presented a Ted Talk highlighting the novel research she’s completing under the guidance of Dr. Yeoheung Yun, focusing on finding a non-invasive technique of testing pharmaceutical drugs pre-clinically to avoid harm to humans and animals. She plans to culture stem cells on a stretchable microelectrode array to better mirror in vivo cardiac function as an in vitro approach to test the effects of cardio-active pharmaceutical drugs.
