MIT's student chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society was founded in 1995 by three MIT seniors who saw the need for a student organization dedicated to providing students with research, employment, and educational opportunities in biomedical engineering.
The Biomedical Engineering Society serves to bring knowledge to its members concerning the advancement of biomedical research and technology in the medical field. It also exists as a forum for discussion among the MIT community who would like share ideas or opinions. Meetings shall promote interests through activities such as lectures, presentations, tours, and social activities.
The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Recreational Technologies (RERC Rec-Tech) at University of Alabama-Birmingham is a five-year grant funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) of the US Department of Education.
RESNA, the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America, is the premier professional organization dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of people with disabilities through increasing access to technology solutions.
RESNA advances the field by offering certification, continuing education, and professional development; developing assistive technology standards; promoting research and public policy; and sponsoring forums for the exchange of information and ideas to meet the needs of our multidisciplinary constituency.
