Biology, Engineering and Medicine (BEM) is an open access, peer reviewed journal on all aspects of biomedical engineering published bimonthly online that can directly inspire or lead to improvements in human health or healthcare.

Journal emphasizes on current concepts in the broad field of Biomedical Engineering including designing instruments, devices and software; bringing together knowledge from many technical sources to develop new procedures; and conducting research needed to solve clinical problems- with particular emphasis on bioinformatics, bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, biomechanics, bioMEMS, Nanobiotechnology, Lab-on-chips, Organ-on-chips, Micro and Nanobiosensing strategies, Nanofabrication, Nanoelectronics, biosignal, processing, computational genomics and proteomics, biotechnology, cellular, tissue, and genetic engineering, clinical engineering, medical imaging, biomonitoring, microtechnology and nanotechnology, neural systems and engineering, health care engineering, orthopedic bioengineering, biochemical engineering, rehabilitation engineering, robotics in surgery, systems physiology and drug delivery bioelectrical engineering.

Manuscripts may take the form of original empirical research, critical reviews of the literature, brief commentaries, perspectives, opinion, meeting reports, case reports, innovations in clinical practice, letters and drug clinical trial studies.

S C. Batterman, Ph.D

Steven C. Batterman, Ph.D, engineering consultant and Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania, is an internationally recognized authority on applied mechanics, mechanics of solids, biomechanics, forensic engineering and accident reconstruction. He received his B.C.E. from The Cooper Union School of Engineering in 1959 and continued his education at Brown University where he received his Sc.M. (Engineering) in 1961 and his Ph.D. (Engineering) in 1964. From 1964 to 1997, he was a continuous full-time faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania where he served as a professor in the School of Engineering and Applied Science (Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, Department of Bioengineering) with secondary appointments in the School of Medicine (Department of Orthopaedic Surgery) and in the School of Veterinary Medicine (Professor of Biomechanics in Veterinary Medicine). During his tenure at the University of Pennsylvania he engaged in pioneering research, as well as undergraduate and graduate course development, in solid mechanics, plasticity, viscoelasticity, plates and shells, bioengineering (including biomechanics, orthopaedic biomechanics, dental biomechanics), and forensic engineering. In 1997 he retired from the University of Pennsylvania as a Professor Emeritus of Bioengineering (Biomechanics) and a Professor Emeritus of Bioengineering in Orthopaedic Surgery but actively continued as a consultant and doing research in forensic engineering, biomechanics and accident reconstruction. He has made fundamental research contributions in numerous areas which include, but are not limited to, plastic buckling, stress analysis, development of rate equations for plates and shells, plasticity, thermoplasticity, biomechanics, injury mechanics, failure analysis, and mechanics of adhesion. His areas of expertise in forensic engineering include accident reconstruction, occupant kinematics, vehicle dynamics, biomechanics, mechanics of human injury, crashworthiness, restraint systems, products liability, safety engineering and human factors. He holds numerous honors and awards, has lectured internationally, has published extensively, is the holder of two United States patents, and is the first engineer in the world to be elected President (1994-95), and a Distinguished Fellow (2001), of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.
