What is the best United States location for a biomedical engineer?

Asked Columbia, Missouri

In the future, I would like to become a biomedical engineer. I want to conduct research in a field such as prosthetics, Stem Cells, immunology, neurology, or regeneration. While there are many colleges that offer this as a major, it’s not as obvious where the best place to go after college would be, as far as the job market.

Are we talking graduate school? (Since you're asking about research).

If so, the short list of top programs is probably Johns Hopkins, Emory/Georgia Tech, UCSD, Duke, and then some of the usual suspects (MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, UMich, UWash, etc).

For undergrad I don't actually know, but it's probably a similar list. In particular, if you can get grad research experience as an undergrad, the strength of the graduate program actually might matter more anyways :P

But of course cost is an issue, so if you have an in-state program that isn't bad, then doing that and then a follow-up PhD (which is usually free) in a top school would be a good approach too.

Edit: looks like I was wrong, it's UCSD not UCLA that has the stronger biomed eng program
