Third Annual UIC Bioengineering Research Symposium scheduled for April 10

The third Annual UIC Bioengineering Research Symposium will take place on Friday, April 10, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Student Center West in the Thompson conference room.

The Richard and Loan Hill Department of Bioengineering and the UIC student chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) co-sponsor the symposium every spring on the UIC campus. This year’s symposium will feature a keynote presentation, along with oral and poster presentations from both undergraduate and graduate students.

The research covers topics that touch on the wide breadth of work being done in the bioengineering field, including tissue engineering, drug delivery, antibiotic resistance, eye imaging, and wearable technologies.

Students interesting in submitting abstracts for this year’s symposium should submit them by March 4.

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.
