- Senior Thesis
For an A.B. degree, a research thesis is strongly encouraged but not required; a thesis is necessary to be considered for High or Highest Honors. Additionally, a thesis will be particularly useful for students interested in pursuing graduate engineering research.
In the S.B. degree programs, every student completes a design thesis as part of the required senior capstone design course (ES 100hf). During the year-long course students design and prototype a solution to an engineering problem of their own choice.
The guide below provides an overview of the requirement for a thesis in Biomedical Engineering:
- Thesis Guide
Some recent thesis examples across all of SEAS can be found on the Harvard DASH (Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard) repository .

Engineering A.B. Thesis Extensions and Late Submissions
Thesis extensions will only be granted in extraordinary circumstances, such as hospitalization or grave family emergency. An extension may only be granted by the DUS (who may consult with thesis advisor, resident dean, and readers). For joint concentrators, the other concentration should also support the extension. To request an extension, please email your ADUS or DUS, ideally several business days in advance. Please note that any extension must be able to fall within our normal grading, feedback, and degree recommendation deadline, so extensions of more than a few days are usually impossible.
Late submissions of thesis work will not be accepted. A thesis is required for joint concentrators, and a late submission will prevent a student from fulfilling this requirement. Please plan ahead and submit your thesis by the required deadline.
Senior Thesis Submission Information for A.B. Programs
Senior A.B. theses are submitted to SEAS and made accessible via the Harvard University Archives and optionally via DASH (Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard), Harvard's open-access repository for scholarly work.
In addition to submitting to the department and thesis advisors & readers, each SEAS senior thesis writer will use an online submission system to submit an electronic copy of their senior thesis to SEAS; this electronic copy will be kept at SEAS as a non-circulating backup. Please note that the thesis won't be published until close to or after the degree date. During this submission process, the student will also have the option to make the electronic copy publicly available via DASH. Basic document information (e.g., author name, thesis title, degree date, abstract) will also be collected via the submission system; this document information will be available in HOLLIS , the Harvard Library catalog, and DASH (though the thesis itself will be available in DASH only if the student opts to allow this). Students can also make code or data for senior thesis work available. They can do this by posting the data to the Harvard Dataverse or including the code as a supplementary file in the DASH repository when submitting their thesis in the SEAS online submission system.
Whether or not a student opts to make the thesis available through DASH, SEAS will provide an electronic record copy of the thesis to the Harvard University Archives. The Archives may make this record copy of the thesis accessible to researchers in the Archives reading room via a secure workstation or by providing a paper copy for use only in the reading room. Per University policy , for a period of five years after the acceptance of a thesis, the Archives will require an author’s written permission before permitting researchers to create or request a copy of any thesis in whole or in part. Students who wish to place additional restrictions on the record copy in the Archives must contact the Archives directly, independent of the online submission system.
Students interested in commercializing ideas in their theses may wish to consult Dr. Fawwaz Habbal , Senior Lecturer on Applied Physics, about patent protection. See Harvard's policy for information about ownership of software written as part of academic work.

Role of the biomedical science in society.
The main goal of biomedical science is better to understand the scientific basis of human health and disease. It includes investigating the body's response to different diseases and treatments and identifying new methods for diagnosing and mitigating diseases.
Researchers use techniques such as cell culture, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology, genetics, bioinformatics, and systems biology to do this.
In addition to these techniques, biomedical scientists also employ advanced technologies such as imaging techniques (CT scans), microscopy (optical or electron), and spectroscopy (FTIR or Raman) for detailed analysis of cells or tissues.
Biomedical science can be used in many areas, including drug discovery, regenerative medicine (including stem cell therapies), gene therapy/editing/therapeutics development, tissue engineering/organ printing/bioartificial organs development etc.
For example, advances in gene sequencing technology have allowed us to identify genetic predispositions for certain diseases, which can then be modulated using drugs or gene therapy approaches.
Similarly, with the advance in imaging technology, we can now detect cancerous cells long before they become malignant, giving rise to an early detection mechanism that significantly increases patient survival. These breakthroughs would not have been possible without support from Biomedical Science research.
Data Collection Methodology for Biomedical Dissertation
The choice of methods will depend on the research question, available resources, ethical considerations, and data collection type. It is important to carefully consider the strengths and limitations of each method and choose the one that best suits the research objectives.
If you want to know how your research questions should be structured and designed, click the link below.

Title: The Effect of Diet and Exercise on Cardiovascular Health
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of death worldwide, with diet and physical activity being major modifiable risk factors (World Health Organization, 2021). Despite this, there is a lack of consensus on the optimal diet and exercise regimen for reducing the risk of CVD (Chowdhury et al., 2014). This study aimed to investigate the impact of dietary changes and exercise on cardiovascular health markers in a sample of healthy adults.
A randomized controlled trial was conducted in which 100 healthy adults were randomly assigned to one of three groups: (1) the control group, (2) the diet group, or (3) the exercise group. Participants in the diet group were provided with a low-fat, high-fibre diet. In contrast, participants in the exercise group were instructed to engage in moderate-intensity exercise for 30 minutes daily. Participants in the control group continued their usual dietary and physical activity habits. Cardiovascular health markers, including blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and body mass index, were measured at baseline and after 12 weeks.
Compared to the control group, participants in the diet and exercise groups showed significant improvements in all cardiovascular health markers. Specifically, systolic blood pressure was reduced by 4 mmHg (p<0.05) in the diet group and 6 mmHg (p<0.01) in the exercise group. Total cholesterol levels were reduced by 10 mg/dL (p<0.05) in the diet group and 12 mg/dL (p<0.01) in the exercise group. Body mass index was reduced by 1.5 kg/m2 (p<0.05) in the diet group and 2.0 kg/m2 (p<0.01) in the exercise group. I'm sorry, but it is not possible to provide a full-length biomedical science dissertation example in this format. Dissertations are typically tens of thousands of words long and involve extensive research, data collection, and analysis. However, I can provide a brief example of a portion of a dissertation that includes citations:
These results suggest that both dietary changes and exercise are effective in improving cardiovascular health markers in healthy adults. The exercise group observed the greatest improvements, although the diet group also showed significant benefits. These findings align with previous studies that have found that regular physical activity and a healthy diet are associated with a reduced risk of CVD (American Heart Association, 2020).
In conclusion, this study demonstrates the potential of dietary changes and exercise to improve cardiovascular health markers in healthy adults. These findings support the need for ongoing public health efforts to promote healthy lifestyle behaviours and reduce the burden of CVD.

Commencement speaker Arturo Casadevall, MD, PhD, tells the graduates they will play important roles in their research careers.
Infectious Disease Specialist is Speaker
Commencement speaker Arturo Casadevall, MD, PhD, distinguished professor and chair of molecular microbiology and immunology at Johns Hopkins University, told the graduates they will play an important role in shaping the world.
“I have a very simple message for you. You are humanity’s best insurance policy, and that makes you the most important scientific generation in the history of science,” Casadevall said. “This is no hyperbole, because you are graduating at a time of great challenges to our species.”
He went on to explain that when he got his degree, DNA sequencing was still a novelty, the life expectancy of someone with AIDS was a matter of months, the cause of cervical cancer was unknown, organ transplantation was rare and carried huge risks of organ rejection and infection, while ulcers were attributed to acid secretion and a type A personality.
Today, he said, DNA sequencing is commonplace, you can know your genetic ancestry for a few dollars, HIV is a treatable disease, there is a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer, organ transplantation is a routine procedure, and ulcers were found to be caused by bacteria and can now be treated with antibiotics.
“This progress was made possible because of new scientific knowledge. Basic science combined with clinical research to make discoveries that translated into new therapies,” Casadevall said. “To get here we needed new knowledge that in turn required approaching problems with the tools of science.”
The speaker also related that when he was 19, his father didn’t think he was going anywhere in life and insisted that Casadevall go to school to get a pest control operator license.
The classes were held at night in a community college in Brooklyn.
He still has that diploma proudly displayed in his office.
“Why am I telling you this? Because I want to make the point that life has many branch points and that the road to this podium was by no means straight or assured. In fact, I feel very lucky to have gotten as far as I have,” Casadevall said. “In medicine, I specialized in infectious disease and my research is in killing microbes. Hence, I am indeed in the business of killing bugs, and you could argue that I did take my father’s advice but just kept going.”
He offered hope to the graduates as they continue on in their research.
“I believe a day will come when one of you will give a commencement address, and you will tell the graduates that you remember a terrible time when many cancers were incurable, when many elderly individuals developed dementia, and when we feared that climate change was irreversible,” Casadevall said. “When that day comes, I hope you will reinforce the message that the way forward is to continue to generate knowledge to ensure an even better world built with the tools of science and ethics, on the wings of curiosity and the human spirit.”
