Meet Kim Daloise, a biomedical engineer who works for Bayer.
Kim Daloise’s biomedical engineering journey began at the University of Pittsburgh where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering with a minor in Chemistry in 2015.
Throughout her college career, Kim was able to take part in both research and industry projects, while also taking classes. She worked as a Research Assistant at McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine which focused on using viruses and stem cells to promote nerve regeneration. Then Kim got a co-op job at Bayer Pharmaceutics Company as a Systems Engineer in the Research and Development group. Bayer manufactures power injectors that are used during MRIs, CT scans, and other imaging scans. Kim’s role was to support the assembly and packaging of sterile disposables such as syringes and tubing that are used with the injectors.
Kim continued to work at Bayer during the summers through college, and then worked 12 hours per week throughout her senior year. As she nurtured her interests, Kim also worked in the Life Cycle Engineering group and helped in sustaining all of the products that were currently on the market.
After Kim graduated from college, she started a new role as a Quality Assurance Engineer at Bayer and worked more closely with manufacturing. Her role is to identify any non-conforming product, whether it was caused by the plant or one of the suppliers, and work diligently to correct the issue.
