Biography
With over 10 years in medical device design R&D, Lisette has developed surgical systems with applications in orthopaedics, neurosurgery, and soft tissue repair. Implantable materials included in these systems range from traditional biocompatible metals to novel bioresorbables, as well as drug delivery implants. Lisette has lead the development of an enhanced electrosurgical bipolar forceps line, and contributed to a disposable instrument design for suture deployment, a fixation system for treatment of spinal deformity, and a diagnostic system for identifying degradation of intervertebral discs.

    Hi Lisette, I am looking for a biomedical engineering opportunity in Costa Rica over the summer. I am interested in working on R&D for medical devices. I am having trouble finding a good summer program/internship online. I saw that you had a great working experience in Costa Rica, so I was wondering if you knew of similar opportunities and could point me in the right direction. Thank you.

    Hi Lisette, I currently have a BA in business but have decided to go back for an engineering degree. You recently answered a question regarding patient interaction and engineering. I have always had a role in working with the disabled in my community and would like to continue to have that participation in an engineering field. I am considering biomedical engineering hoping to work with either prosthetics and/or medical devices but I've heard that mechanical engineering may be a better option ...
