Dr. Marcia Pool is a Teaching Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Programs in Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In her career, Marcia has been active in improving undergraduate education through developing problem-based laboratories to enhance experimental design skills; developing a preliminary design course focused on problem identification and market space (based on an industry partner’s protocol); and mentoring and guiding student teams through the senior design capstone course and a translational course following senior design. To promote biomedical/bioengineering, Marcia works with Women in Engineering to offer outreach activities and served at the national level as Executive Director of the biomedical engineering honor society, Alpha Eta Mu Beta, from 2011-2017.
