The Bioengineering department would like to congratulate Paul Bui for graduating with his Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering, and for his acceptance into the school of medicine at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.
Paul is an Arlington native who has participated in the five-year dual degree program which allowed him to obtain both a BS in Biology and MS in Biomedical Engineering. While following the program's tissue engineering track, Paul became infatuated with the intricacies of the human body and the vast potential for bioengineering in healthcare. His interests in wound healing and drug delivery led him to join Dr. Yi Hong's laboratory where he researched polymeric microbubbles for drug release in collaboration with Dr. Nguyen's students.
While attending school at UTA, Paul actively volunteered at the Medical Center of Arlington as well as Mission Arlington. He also participated in organizations such as the Global Water Brigades, where he traveled to Honduras to help install a chlorine-drip system, providing clean water to several villages. Paul was also part of the Formula Society of Automotive Engineers where he helped design a regenerative hybrid-electric brake pedal for the formula racing team.
Paul attributes his acceptance into medical school to the wide variety of experiences at UTA and looks forward to continuing his education. He hopes to specialize in surgical ophthamology after completing four years in medical school. We wish Paul the best of luck as he starts medical school at UTMB.
