UIC Bioengineering Research Symposium
The Richard and Loan Hill Department of Bioengineering will host a virtual symposium for prospective graduate students on Thursday, December 3, 2020, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm (U.S. Central Time).
The symposium will feature talks from faculty/labs about ongoing cutting-edge research within diverse areas of bioengineering such as tissue engineering, microfluidics, imaging technologies, organ-on-a-chip, robotics for healthcare, computational fluid dynamics, Alzheimer’s, nanoparticles, microbiome, bioinformatics, computational biology, drug development, biomaterials, and drug delivery
- This symposium will help prospective graduate students to learn about different UIC bioengineering faculty who are looking to mentor and fund students for master’s and doctoral degree programs starting in fall 2021.
- The registration deadline is Tuesday, December 1, 2020, at 12:00 pm Central Time. Please register by then in to receive the connection links for the symposium.
We look forward to seeing you at the symposium virtually.
