BIOMED Alumni Jaydev Kardam Dave Is Featured in Drexel Magazine‘s 40 Under 40

Drexel Magazine

Drexel Magazine‘s 40 Under 40 showcased the remarkable achievements of hundreds of ambitious Dragons and featured our Alumni Jaydev Kardam Dave, PhD. Dr. Dave graduated from Drexel in 2008 with an MS in Biomedical Engineering, and again in 2012 with a PhD in Biomedical Engineering. He is currently an associate professor in the Department of Radiology at Thomas Jefferson University. Below is an interview that was done with him in 2022.

How Drexel Helped Me: I came to the United States with a desire to do some research and see what life has to offer. For everything else, there was (and is) Drexel and its well-rooted affiliations. Solid academics, unbelievable opportunities and the “student first” culture are what I experienced in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems. Remarkably, while at Drexel, I had email exchanges with the late Dr. Taki Papadakis. I was stunned by how receptive he was to me, a foreign, relatively unknown Dragon, while busily charting Drexel’s growth. He heard everyone and helped as needed. While pursuing my PhD, I was able to leverage the connection between the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems and Jefferson’s Radiology Department. And now, as a faculty member at Jefferson, I am continuing the tradition of information and research exchange, by working with the biomedical engineering students from Drexel. So Drexel is continuing to help me.
