Introducing the Movers and Shakers of the Biomedical Engineering Students' Association (BESA)! Meet the visionary leaders steering the Biomedical Engineering Students' Association towards a brighter, healthier future in 2023.
In September, BME welcomed 100+ students into our graduate programs. We asked some of these students why they chose our programs, and what they are looking forward to in this unusual year. Here's what they have to say.
As ToBE embarks on its latest chapter in 2023, we are proud to introduce the leadership duo at the helm of this year’s event: Zi Xuan Zhang and Eileen Zhong.
Back in 2021, one year into the lockdown, we sat down with 6 MASc and PhD students from BME, exploring their visions for a world changed in two years’ time. Recently, we had the opportunity to reconnect with these extraordinary individuals and witness the profound evolution of their perspectives.
Campbell is one of three 2023 recipients of the Indigenous and Black Engineering and Technology (IBET) Momentum Fellowships, along with fellow graduate students Raylene Mitchell (MIE) and LaShawn Murray (MIE). Fellowship recipients receive financial support, mentorship, training and networking opportunities to reduce the systemic barriers for their entry into academia.
Stefan Mladjenovic (BME), a 2023 Vanier Scholar, was inspired by his mother’s battle with cancer to research nanomedicine for his PhD. He is one of the five U of T engineering students awarded 2023 Vanier Scholarship.
Kaylie Lau has been involved in youth outreach for many years, so when the opportunity arose to become involved with the UHN STEM Pathways program she jumped at the chance.
Amine Driouchi (BME2019) embarked on his science journey at King’s College London in biochemistry, and this eventually led to his PhD work in Dr. Chris Yip’s lab at the University of Toronto. Now he is working as a senior scientist for Eikon Therapeutics, a California-based biotechnology company that develops drug discovery technologies using super-resolution microscopy. Here, Amine shares his academic journey and what he is doing now at Eikon.
In this Alumni Q&A, meet Nikola Andric, the Director of Product Development at MolecuLight, where he spearheads the advancement of fluorescence wound imaging devices for bacterial load visualization and wound measurement. Graduated from BME MEng program in 2017, Nikola is leveraging his diverse skill set honed during his U of T Engineering days. His pioneering work not only showcases a transformative passion for revolutionizing wound care but also reflects his dedication to innovation, seamless communication, and staying at the forefront of medical device trends.
Throughout her graduate studies, Hannah Kozlowski recalls her PhD supervisor reminding her that doing a PhD is a marathon, not a sprint. As an endurance runner who has completed six marathons — including the Boston and Chicago Marathons — Kozlowski found the advice relatable and memorable.
