De-stress with BMES!

With all the stress of final exams creeping up, it’s always important to find some time to relax and de-stress. Come have pancakes and smoothies with BMES while meeting other people with an interest in biomedical engineering! Time and location will follow soon.

Hope to see you there :)


Company Tour: MC10

On 11/14/13, Tufts BMES was lucky enough to go on a company tour to see MC10. Located in the neighboring city of Cambridge, MA, MC10 develops a variety of electronics for medical applications. To learn more, check out their website at: http://www.mc10inc.com/

Some of the technology that MC10 develops includes implantable electronics and catheters with sensors.

Special thanks to Ms. Yamaguchi for organizing such a wonderful tour, and to Ms. Webster for the photos!


Reverse Trick-Or-Treat!

Tufts BMES took Sci-tech by surprise on Halloween this year by reverse-trick-or-treating–that’s when people go around giving out candy instead of going around asking others for it. We were able to spread joy and Halloween spirit through some candies and chocolates. It was our way of saying thank you for all of your support for BMES events. Needless to say, it was a very “sweet” experience :) Thanks always, Tufts!!


BMES Costume Contest

We have our winners from this Halloween’s costume contest! Congrats to Amy Thurber, the Lab Hero, for winning best individual contest and being prepared to take on any laboratory situation! Also, based on percentage of participants, the winning lab was Kaplan’s! You will receive your trophy later this week. Thanks to everyone who participated and hope everyone had a great Halloween!
