ARLINGTON, Va.--A five-university partnership led by Vanderbilt University will develop bioengineering educational technologies and curricula at a new Engineering Research Center funded by the US National Science Foundation. Through a five-year, nearly $10 million cooperative agreement, the center will support and enhance the education of new bioengineers needed to strengthen the industry. The partnership includes the joint Division of Health Sciences and Technology of Harvard Medical School, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northwestern University, and University of Texas at Austin. Bioengineers will join learning scientists and computer scientists at the center to address the need for a "new level of educational tools to advance the frontiers of America's bioengineering industry," said Eugene Wong, NSF's assistant director for engineering.
