Are you interested in getting into Women’s Health research as a bioengineer? Here’s a perfect place to start! The Royal Society Publishing has recently published a special issue of Interface Focus entitled
Bioengineering in women’s health, Volume 1: female health and pathology and Volume 2: pregnancy—from implantation to parturition. Both issues are organized by Kristin Miller, Kristin Myers and Michelle Oyen and the articles for both issues can be accessed directly at Volume 1 and Volume 2.
We are honored to be recognized for our work in pregnancy biomechanics! See the Columbia SEAS press release.
