Biomedical Engineering, University of Texas at Austin
Samuel Razmi joins EnMed from Dallas. He received his bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering with an emphasis on cellular and biomolecular engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.
“I chose EnMed because nowhere else in the country can I explore the interface between health and engineering at the same time,” he said. “The location in the medical center provides countless opportunities for clinical innovation, and I hope to foster and cultivate my passions as a physician-engineer to promote better health outcomes in all populations of people.”
During his undergraduate career, Razmi researched novel ways of inducing pluripotent stem cells. He also worked as a summer fellow at the University of North Texas Health Science Center where he studied oncology, and later at UT Southwestern Medical Center where he studied parasitic pharmacology. His current research interests include high-frequency ultrasound and its diagnostic capabilities intraoperatively, cardiovascular grafts and tissue engineering, induced pluripotent stem cells and triple-negative breast cancer.
Razmi brings a strong sense of biomedical innovation to EnMed and currently has several patents pending. He is keeping his options open for medical specialties but has interests in interventional cardiology, otolaryngology and surgical oncology. He also has plans to continue performing research as a physician focusing on health-equity research and health policy, especially for underserved and disadvantaged populations.
Outside of school, he enjoys camping, hiking, lifting, basketball and music. He loves watching the NBA and premier league (European soccer) and enjoys being outside and working with his hands.
