Engineering Students:

Emory IR has a unique relationship with the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), a joint initiative of Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). Emory IR has mentored several Senior Capstone Design Teams at Georgia Tech and has provided guidance and exposure to advanced IR procedures and challenging clinical problems. The "needs-driven" model of innovation identification has provided an enriched and collaborative experience for all team members involved.
