Senior Capstone Design I BioE141A / B

Stanford University Lecture/Lab, two-quarter capstone sequence. Team based project introduces students to the process of designing new biological technologies to address societal needs. Topics include methods for validating societal needs, brainstorming, concept selection, and the engineering design process. First quarter deliverable is a design for the top concept. Second quarter involves implementation and testing. Guest lectures and practical demonstrations are incorporated. Prerequisites: BIOE 123 and BIOE 44. This course is open only to seniors in the undergraduate Bioengineering program. Link to BioE141A

Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign

David Camarillo is on the advisory faculty for Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign.

Stanford Summer Engineering Academy

David is also part of the faculty of Stanford Summer Engineering Academy (SSEA) which offers incoming first-year students a dynamic, hands-on, intensive four-week residential experience. During this time, students take math and CS courses taught by Stanford faculty and gain exposure to the wealth of resources on campus. SSEA facilitates the transition to Stanford for incoming first-year students who may be underrepresented in engineering fields (women, first generation and/or low-income, first in their family to study/pursue an engineering degree or come from under-resourced schools or environments with limited exposure to engineering curriculum).


Our lab regularly offers demonstrations of our technology and research at the Bay Area Science Festival at AT&T Park. We have also done a demonstration booth at the California Academy of Sciences, in addition to many other public outreach events. Our lab regularly hosts high-school students for summer research, especially from under-represented minority groups including East Palo Alto Academy.
