Education & Training
The BLI Education Program provides opportunities for training at every level, from undergraduates
to practicing clinicians. Current training programs are described below.
Because we are a multi-disciplinary institute, graduate students in many departments, including: Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, Physiology and Biophysics, and Biological Science, have pursued graduate research at the BLI. If you are interested in studying with one of our faculty, you should apply to a department that best matches your background and research interests. If you are accepted into one of these programs, you will have an opportunity to join a research group at the BLI.
