Pruitt Research Day

Join us on Friday, November 17th as we celebrate the next generation of Biomedical Engineers and Scientists!

Pruitt Research Day will be a celebration of the research being conducted in the BME department and the BME community. We hold our celebration near the birth date of Dr. J. Crayton Pruitt Sr. whose vision and generosity helped found the BME department. Because Dr. Pruitt was always most excited about hearing and discussing our students’ achievements and research.  Dr. Pruitt himself was not only a renowned cardiothoracic surgeon but also an inventor of catheters and instruments for use in cardiovascular surgery that include his co-invention of the Pruitt-Inahara shunt – still one of the world’s most popular shunts used during carotid endarterectomy.

Additional details and the full schedule of events will be posted soon!
