Rowan University Starts Biomedical Engineering Program, Appoints Chairman

Glassboro, NJ, December 10, 2014 ― New Jersey Business reports that Rowan University welcomed its first class of biomedical engineering students this year as its nationally recognized College of Engineering recently created the Biomedical Engineering Department.

The program is at the intersection of medicine and biology, with the focus on the improvement of heath care systems and is modeled after the proven hands-on, real-world, project-based curriculum of Rowan’s existing engineering programs.

Rowan University also named Dr. Mark Byrne as professor and inaugural chairman of the new department.  A leader in the field of biomaterials engineering, controlled therapeutic delivery, pharmaceutical engineering, polymer engineering and medical devices, Byrne has won numerous awards for his teaching and research and has licensed a number of innovative technologies.

“Dr. Byrne has the education, experience and credentials to not only further develop and lead our new biomedical engineering program but also to nurture our student researchers in a very demanding and constantly evolving field,” said Dr. Anthony Lowman, dean of the College of Engineering.  “His background is an excellent fit for a school that will continue to grow its focus on research.”
