Welcome to SEBM | Integrating Science and Medicine
How Can We Help You Succeed?
We are a non-profit scientific society that promotes investigation in the biomedical sciences, enables career success of our members and fosters the career development of students, physician-scientists and new investigators. We accomplish this goal through publication of a peer-reviewed Journal, Experimental Biology and Medicine and cultivating a broad range of international social and research-centered events throughout the year.
Activate your subscription to 100 years of articles from Experimental Biology and Medicine, the SEBM journal. Founded in 1903, the journal archives are all available to members and subscribers and are under the protection of LOCKSS and Portico.
Articles represent cutting edge research as the overlapping junctions of the biological, physical and engineering sciences that impact on the health and welfare of the world's population.
Featured SEBM Scientist | Rashid Bashir, PhD
I am the Abel Bliss Professor of Engineering and faculty in Bioengineering with courtesy appointments in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Materials Science and Engineering. I am the department head of Bioengineering at UIUC.
When I was a kid I knew I liked science and engineering. I studied electrical engineering for BS through PhD. I love being a professor and I love academia but if I did not do that I would have been a physician. Well, I was part of team that conceived the idea and part of the team that is starting the first Engineering Based Medical School at UIUC – so that dream could also become a reality in an indirect way. All my education was in Electrical Engineering. In the last semester of my PhD I took bioengineering courses and many light bulbs went on! That’s what I want to be doing. Then I worked in the semiconductor industry for 6 years and during that time went back to school to take biology, organic chemistry and various wet labs. And then went back to academia to be a professor. I was at Purdue for 9 years and then moved to UIUC and have been here for for 9 years.
