Karenna Rehorn is a junior studying biomedical engineering with an emphasis in cellular and tissue engineering. In the future she hopes to focus on helping individuals with autoimmune disorders.
Rehorn is a DJ at the campus radio station, KDVS. Other interests include running, playing the flute, volunteering at the UC Davis farm and cooking.
As medical technology advances, the lives of people around the world will improve. I look forward to participating in designing and producing some of the devices that further this improvement. My experiences through this program and the subsequent internships have allowed me to become a more effective engineer and potential entrepreneur.
Allie Brunson not only is a biomedical-engineering major: She’s also a staff member at the UC Davis Biomedical Engineering Department’s TEAM Electrical/Mechanical Lab, where she and her coworkers help researchers prototype ideas into reality.
An interdisciplinary study by an undergraduate researcher in the Heinrich Lab attests to the growing recognition that innovative concepts and approaches developed by bioengineers and biophysicists can help tackle vital scientific questions that are inaccessible to traditional biological methods.
