The Impact of Bioengineering

2/16/2024; 29 minutes

Bioengineering, also known as biomedical engineering, is a multidisciplinary field that applies principles and methods of engineering, biology, and medicine to solve problems and develop technologies related to healthcare and biology.
Bioengineers design and create a wide range of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and therapeutic techniques. They work on projects such as artificial organs, medical imaging systems, drug delivery systems, tissue engineering, genetic engineering, and more. UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering Dean Al Pisano shares a conversation with the founding chair of the Department of Bioengineering, Dr. Shu Chien, and local bioengineering entrepreneur Dr. Gene Lay discussing the impact of bioengineering and how the field continues to drive innovation in medicine, improve patient outcomes, enhance quality of life, and is shaping the future of healthcare.
