BME Research Day

The Biomedical Engineering Department invites you to join us for our annual BME Research Day.  This event is designed to highlight the diverse research in our department and to spark collaborations through high-level overviews of current research. The talks will be short and jargon-free with plenty of time to discuss ideas over posters and refreshments at the end of the day.
