What does membership in BMES mean to you?
As a member, I've worked with esteemed professionals for the benefit of healthcare and the biomedical community. The membership has given me the gateway to initiate discussions with potential collaborators in the biomedical industry.

What is the focus of your work?
 As chair of the Translation Group, I direct and manage the group's initiatives.  The group has 12 members, and we have biweekly calls to discuss progress.  The group has undertaken four initiatives, including three annual meeting sessions and a clinical matchup program.  The clinical matchup program, in its early planning stage, is aimed to interface clinicians with bioengineers for new ventures.
