I am currently an Undergrad student studying Biophysics, wanting to pursue a career in medical research. Is it possible to go from a B.S. in Biophysics to a M.S. or Ph.D in Biomedical Engineering? Do I have to have a degree in Biomedical Engineering to be a Biomedical Engineer? My main research interest is Cardiovascular Engineering. I am about to start independent research in Cardiovascular physics, studying biomaterials and tissue engineering methods that can be used to make heart valves. I also want to work with a math major and develop mathematical models to represent the mechanics of the heart valve, in order to develop more efficient valves. Am I on the right track? Will Biophysics prepare me for this?
