Annual Research Symposium
UIC Bioengineering Research Symposium
The Richard and Loan Hill Department of Bioengineering and the UIC student chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) co-sponsor the UIC Bioengineering Research Symposium every spring on the UIC campus. Each year the symposium features a keynote presentation, along with oral and poster presentations from both undergraduate and graduate students.
The students’ research covers topics that touch on the comprehensive breadth of work being done in the bioengineering field, including tissue engineering, drug delivery, antibiotic resistance, eye imaging, and wearable technologies.
The symposium provides a great opportunity for students to hone their presentation skills to both other students and faculty. Awards are given out to students in a variety of categories.
All undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows/associates, and research associates/fellows/specialists at UIC who are engaged in bioengineering research within or outside the College of Engineering are encouraged to submit an abstract and participate in the symposium.

Abstract Submission Information
Who can participate?
All undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral associates/fellows, and research associates/fellows/specialists at UIC who are engaged in bioengineering research within or outside the College of Engineering are encouraged to submit an abstract. Students may request to be considered for an oral podium presentation, poster presentation, or both per instructions below; if a student requests to be considered for both, he/she will be selected for one or the other.
To be considered for a POSTER presentation, the abstract should be formatted to be a single paragraph of 250-300 words (no headings) that describes the background/motivation, methods, results, discussion, and conclusions of the research study. Abstract title and author names/affiliations should also be included prior to the single paragraph. The abstract should be converted to a single page PDF prior to uploading to Abstract Submission Form.
All posters will need to conform to a pre-set template, which will be separately emailed to accepted abstracts following the submission deadline.
