Duke professor William Reichert is giving biomedical engineering students yet another avenue to explore the connection between BME and global health through a new undergrad/grad partnership with Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Learn more about this exciting program: http://bit.ly/2cSgRoS
Duke students interested in biomedical engineering (BME) and global health now have a new opportunity to fuse their interests in a collaborative trans-continental partnership. The recently established Duke-Makerere University BME Partnership will connect students and faculty in the BME program at Duke with their peers at Makerere University (MUK) in Kampala, Uganda, to build teaching capacity and design skills.

IF this turns into or is a front for a "child pimpery", I will personally find a way to drag your deviant souls trapped in meatsuits across Africa training lions with your LIMBS!
EXTRA WATCH THAT PROGRAM.

In 2014, the Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) launched a global cancer research program in partnership with the Duke Cancer Institute and the National Cancer Institute. And this fall, the arrival of two new global cancer faculty members—Megan Huchko and Gita Suneja—is helping to expand this program. Learn more about Megan and Gita: http://bit.ly/2cXyoYQ
