Emma Burgin is a senior at Wayne State University and a Regulatory and Quality Management System Intern to Warmilu. Warmilu’s mission to provide critical support to infants in need is something that deeply resonates with Emma. As the daughter of a labor and delivery nurse, she has discovered that a true passion of hers is developing technologies that ensure that our youngest members of society have the best start to life that they can. In addition to her years of medical device engineering and design experience at Wayne State University, she has also gained experience on the business side of the industry working in research and development at General Motors. During her GM internship, Emma learned first-hand about marketing, licensing, technology development, and the patenting process.
Emma is currently leading a senior design team in developing a new system of securing external physiology monitors to mothers in labor to decrease extra discomfort for the mother while properly monitoring the baby’s physiological responses to labor. Her design projects at Wayne State have provided Emma with significant hands-on experience with FDA design control regulations such as 21CFR820.30 and international risk management processes for medical devices as defined in ISO 14971. Emma, like Grace, is a fellow alumna of the Macomb Mathematics Science and Technology Center (MMSTC), and is currently finishing up her last semester at Wayne State University where she is earning a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering.
