6th Annual Research Symposium

The Richard and Loan Hill Department of Biomedical Engineering and the UIC student chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) co-sponsor the UIC Biomedical Engineering Research Symposium every spring on the UIC campus. The symposium features a keynote presentation along with lightning talks and poster presentations from both undergraduate and graduate students. This year’s symposium will occur on March 8, 2024.

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

The symposium provides a great opportunity for students to hone their presentation skills to both other students and faculty. Awards are given out to students in a variety of categories.

All undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows/associates, and research associates/fellows/specialists at UIC who are engaged in biomedical engineering research within or outside the College of Engineering are encouraged to submit an abstract and participate in the symposium.  Students who present in the symposium will have the chance to be judged by experienced professors and compete for prizes!
