Annual Research Symposium

Symposium Winners

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.

The Third Annual UIC Bioengineering Research Symposium will take place Friday, April 10, 2020, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm in Student Center West – Thompson conference room.
