Special Interest Groups
The BMES Medical Devices Special Interest Group (SIG) was established as part of a new partnership between BMES, Industry and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The SIG will foster collaboration between industry, FDA, academic researchers, practicing engineers, clinicians, regulatory professionals, and students interested in exploring the art of designing, testing, and using medical devices to improve the lives of patients around the world.
Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering
BMES member scientists, clinicians and engineerings interested in exploring the mechanisms by which physical regulation influences life. All BMES members are welcome to join the CMBE SIG.

The objective of ABioM-SIG is to bring academia and industrial leaders together to promote the development of advanced biomanufacturing, foster collaborations among investigators in the field, and create a new mode of educating and training the next generation leaders and workforce in advanced biomanufacturing.
BMES Policy on Special Interest Groups
The Biomedical Engineering Society has established a process for members of the Society who have an interest in forming Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
The Purpose of SIGs
- To provide networking opportunities for the exchange of information and ideas in a specific research area.
- To provide members with a forum to network and discuss issues relevant to this research area.
- To provide the Society with a direct avenue to members with specific expertise
- To provide members with an avenue for professional development within a specific research area.
Forming a New SectionMembers wanting to form a Special Interest Group should email Terry Young, BMES Director of Career Programs and Meetings.
Please include the following:
- Name and Membership level of requestor
- Objective for the SIG
- Description of the topic(s) covered by the SIG
- Proposed activities for the SIG.
Once preliminary approval is granted by the Executive Committee, BMES staff will create a webpage for the SIG thus allowing BMES members to join/actively participate in the SIG.
In order to maintain its status, the SIG’s membership (whether dues paying or not) should never fall below 20 BMES members. The SIG must also submit a report of its activities to the Board of Directors annually.
