The J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering has seen tremendous growth since its inception in 2002. In the past year, the department has grown to 24 faculty and will continue that growth up to 25-30. We also have over 40+ affiliate faculty members from all across campus. Our faculty hold national awards and are well recognized as leaders in their respective fields of expertise. All of the BME faculty are highly collaborative with other departments in the College of Engineering (e.g., Chemical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering) and across other Colleges at UF (e.g., Medicine, Dentistry, Public Health).
