Robert E. Fischell, benefactor of the Clark School's Fischell Department of Bioengineering and a mechanical engineering professor of the practice, spoke to freshman in ENES 181, "Dialogue with the Dean," this week.

Fischell's talk, "Engineering for Humanity, Fun and Profit," included examples of his work on different biomedical inventions including stents, heart attack detection devices, and implantable devices for epilepsy treatment.

Fischell elaborated on the impact of his inventions on human life, focusing on the joy and challenges of inventing new devices and taking them to market.

"Dialogue with the Dean" is an introductory course for incoming freshman and transfer students in engineering. Dean Nariman Farvardin teaches the course and invites many guest speakers from the field throughout the semester.
