The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is a professional society for biomedical engineering and bioengineering. Founded in early 1968, the Society now boasts over 7,000 members and is growing, rapidly. BMES serves as the lead society and professional home for biomedical engineering and bioengineering. Our mission is to promote and enhance knowledge and education in biomedical engineering and bioengineering worldwide and its utilization for human health and well-being. Our San Francisco Bay Area Industry chapter was established in February of 2016, with a value proposition: 


To create a biomedical industry community in the San Francisco Bay Area that provides:

  • Mentoring for students, young professionals and newcomers to industry,

  • Networking for collaboration and talent recruitment,

  • Continuing Education (e.g., technology, clinical, professional development, industry trends, funding, regulatory, communication, interviewing),

  • Promotion of the Industry in the region.

We welcome anyone from the Biomedical Community to join us at our quarterly meetings for networking and education on topics relevant to our industry.  We alternate locations between Newark and Palo Alto to best serve the entire Bay Area community.  In between our quarterly meetings we also hold happy hour events at various location.  Hope you will join us!
