Please join us at Clay Pit for a luncheon with Cornell Professor Marjolein van der Meulen, one of Cornell’s biomedical engineering leaders.  This small, conversational setting will allow attendees to hear updates on Cornell’s cutting edge biomedical research including the Neurotech initiative and biotechnology.

Dr. van der Meulen is the principal architect of the Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Major and has a unique perspective on bioengineering throughout the college.  In her own research, she collaborates with faculty across the campus and university, including, but not limited to, Weill Cornell and the Hospital for Special Surgery.
