“Back from BiomediKal to BiomediCal” A tale of BME By Saurabh Fatehpur

Biomedical students are spread around the world but very few find their field Biomedical Engineering satisfactory,
Today, I wish to present a story of Biomedical Engineer who is satisfied with is job and wants new Biomedical Engineers to join this field

Two unconnected things occurred simultaneously – one was the mixed feelings to diversify my writings and other was invitation by Kush Tripathi to write for his Biomedikal blog. I promised myself to complete both but as I started, the lazy part of mine promptly suggested me to mix the two and present a single dish (whose taste you readers have to rate at the end of the article). Kush Tripathi, my pen friend, (in today’s term a Facebook or a Twitter friend), a post-graduate student in biomedical pinged me one fine evening and insisted to pen down my opinions on biomedical engineering. I thought the task would be quite easy as I am a post graduate in the same field with lots of personal desire to study the subject, but Kush added a trouble and challenged me to give the article an informal touch – a personal touch  rather than a technical write-up which is commonly available on a Google search. At that time I almost overlooked his expectations but as I started to cook the dish I realized its importance. Any article when written with personal experience adds readers.

“You & Your Research” A must read for people having interest in Research

At a seminar in the Bell Communications Research Colloquia Series, Dr. Richard W. Hamming, a Professor at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California and a retired Bell Labs scientist, gave a very interesting and stimulating talk, `You and Your Research’ to an overflow audience of some 200 Bellcore staff members and visitors at the Morris Research and Engineering Center on March 7, 1986. This talk centered on Hamming’s observations and research on the question “Why do so few scientists make significant contributions and so many are forgotten in the long run?” From his more than forty years of experience, thirty of which were at Bell Laboratories, he has made a number of direct observations, asked very pointed questions of scientists about what, how, and why they did things, studied the lives of great scientists and great contributions, and has done introspection and studied theories of creativity. The talk is about what he has learned in terms of the properties of the individual scientists, their abilities, traits, working habits, attitudes, and philosophy.
