Dear students,

We wanted to pass along the following opportunity from Rice University for you to review and participate in if you are interested. Note that these could also be counted as Seminar attendance should you need them.

Subject: Webinar series on Frontiers in Bioengineering Research

Dear Colleagues:

As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds across the globe, in-person seminar series at our universities have been cancelled; conferences and workshops postponed, re-scheduled or cancelled; and research activities significantly ramped down.  To help keep our students engaged, enhance their educational experience, and gain new knowledge in bioengineering and biomedical research, including COVID-19 research, Rice Bioengineering has organized a weekly webinar series, Frontiers in Bioengineering Research, to be held on Thursdays 3:00pm-4:30pm CDT.  Starting this Thursday April 16th, 2020, each webinar has two 30-minute presentations that feature cutting-edge research in bioengineering, following by a short Q&A session. All faculty and traineesin bioengineering and biomedical engineering departments are welcome to participate by clicking ‘JOIN THE WEBINAR’ on the following website, which gives more details on the webinar series:

The first 4 webinars in the series highlight Synthetic Biology for COVID-19 Research (4/16), Immunoengineering and Immunotherapy (4/23), COVID-19 Diagnosis and Critical Care (4/30), and Antibody-based Diagnostics and Therapeutics (5/7), with speakers from different institutions in the US and Canada. More topics will be announced shortly.

With best regards, and please stay safe.
