Dear students,


The 2021 Biomedical Engineering Society meeting will be held from October 6-9. To ensure safety of participants and provide flexibility, a hybrid approach is being planned. This means that the participants can choose to attend in person (limited and first-come first serve) as well as virtually.


The department encourages and expects a strong showing from our student researchers in this meeting. Abstract submission will open in the beginning of April. Please confer with your supervisors and consider submitting an abstract. The department will pay for all student registrations as well as travel costs for 2-3 students who have opportunity to give oral presentations in person. This is a great opportunity to showcase your work as well as network to potentially secure your next graduate or post-Doctoral position.


Please forward your abstract-submission confirmation to Carol McHugh at [log in to unmask].


Thank you,
