Annual Research Symposium
2nd Annual UIC Bioengineering Research Symposium
The second annual UIC Bioengineering Research Symposium will be held in room 302 in the Student Center East Tower. The symposium, which is co-sponsored by the UIC student chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) and the UIC Richard and Loan Hill Department of Bioengineering, will feature a keynote presentation, along with poster and oral presentations from undergraduate and graduate students.Following last year’s successful debut, this year’s symposium has been expanded and will feature presentations across the bioengineering research spectrum. The symposium provides a great opportunity for students to hone their presentation skills to both students and faculty. Awards will be awarded out to students in a variety of categories.
The Annual Research Symposium is hosted by the University of Illinois at Chicago chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society | bmes.uic.edu

Abstract Submission Information
Who can participate?
All undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral fellows/associates, 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
