The University of Texas’s Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is hosting their first Biomedical Research Symposium on November 8, 2014, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the HEB UC Ballrooms 1 and 2.
“Anyone who is interested in medical research or medicine is invited to attend,” said Jean Yun, president of the Biomedical Engineering Society at The University of Texas at San Antonio. “The goal of the symposium is to bring an awareness and celebrate all the advancements being done towards the medical field at UTSA and UTHSCSA.”
There will be a poster contest, speakers, and senior design presentations. According to Yun, the symposium will allow students to see all the biomedical research being done on campus and give engineering students an idea of what senior design entails.
“We also want to exposes other students to biomedical engineering and our program here on campus,” said Yun. “This symposium will celebrate all the achievements being done by students to help advance understanding of the human body and medicine as a whole, and to show all the amazing technology that we are using in the field, right now.”
BMES is currently seeking researchers to present topics relating to the medical industry, including all projects related to the medical field including abstracts for current research projects as well as senior design projects. Graduate, undergraduate, and professional researchers are welcome. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
