Write your
success story for biomedical science at the University
of Vermont

Strategically situated in Burlington, the University of Vermont (UVM) — or "Universitas Viridis Montis," Latin for "University of the Green Mountains" — is more than just the fifth-oldest university in New England (after Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and Brown). Founded in 1791, it has cemented its reputation as one of the top 100 public research universities in the US. 

Every day, students at every level, including 1,700 graduate students, are advancing knowledge and working towards transforming lives. They share ideas and create impact by taking advantage of the university's research-rich offering, teaching excellence, and vibrant blend of nationalities and cultures. 

Building a better future at the Centre for Biomedical Innovation

If you are searching for a place where life-changing research takes place, then look no further. UVM's Centre for Biomedical Innovation (CBI) is a hub for the design, development, and testing of biomedical devices and systems with a focus on rural healthcare. It’s the ideal launchpad for those passionate about creating advanced biomedical technologies — including aspiring inventors, entrepreneurs, and business leaders.

Here, students and faculty from the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, Grossman School of Business, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, and Larner College of Medicine come together to engage in meaningful research for a new healthcare product or service — something which Erik Monsen, Associate Professor and Steven Grossman Endowed Chair in Entrepreneurship, appreciates. 

"To design technology products that are accessible and inclusive to diverse and rural healthcare providers and recipients, it is critical to understand the needs of your users, customers, and other healthcare stakeholders," says Monsen. "This is where entrepreneur and innovative thinking is used to apply foundational business skills, such as marketing, finance, accounting, data analytics, and management to best design biomedical products and the organisations that bring them to market."

CBI encompasses all aspects of the bio-design process — from customer discovery, problem identification and concept ideation to prototyping and new product or business development. Prototyping occurs in a specialised fabrication space that complements the existing CEMS fab lab and machine shop. A virtual amphitheatre houses on-campus clinicians, researchers, and industry collaborators to observe the beta testing of new devices and technologies.

My long-term goal is to become a subject matter expert in supply chain, which is the backbone of the industry. I found BGSU's Logistics Systems Engineering program is a combination of engineering and management, which helps me to enhance my knowledge and skills. I joined BGSU in January 2022 and got the opportunity to work as a Graduate Assistant on an industrial project under the guidance of Dr. Sarder.
