Biomedical Engineering Spring Speaker Series: Combating COVID-19 (Part 1 of 3)
Two Johns Hopkins emergency department physicians at the front lines will discuss the critical needs in the age of COVID-19 and how biomedical engineers can tackle these needs. Speakers include:
- Jamil Bayram, the associate director of disaster metrics at the Johns Hopkins Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response
- Daniel Swedien, an instructor of emergency medicine at Johns Hopkins who is maintaining the ventilator supply
This event is part of the Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering Society's three-part virtual speaker series intended to give students insight into Johns Hopkins' role in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic through diagnosis, treatment, and tracking. This series will feature leading figures from the Johns Hopkins Hospital Emergency Department, Center for Systems Science and Engineering graduate students responsible for producing the COVID-19 Tracking Map, and a presentation on vaccine design from Scott Wilson, Johns Hopkins assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering.
The Zoom link for this discussion will be posted on the Facebook event page the day of the event.
