Barry Belmont, Ph.D.


Lecturer III, Biomedical Engineering

Barry Belmont is a Lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan. Prior to this position he had stints at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati as a Scientific Advisor and conducting research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His research and educational interests lie at the intersection of quantifying our biology and characterizing its consequences, manifest most prominently at the University by his instruction of ENGIN 100.500 ("Biotechnology, Human Values, and the Engineer"), BIOMEDE 211 ("Circuits and Systems in Biomedical Engineering"), and BIOMEDE 458 ("Biomedical Instrumentation and Design") and his development of the Bioethics Discussion Group. He spends much of his time pondering and expounding upon what he has come to refer to as "Our Biomedical Condition", a subset of the human condition resulting from our ever greater ability to measure and realize that we are our biology.
