3 attend, 2 win at Bioengineering Symposium


Three students from the Northwest Tissue Mechanics Laboratory at Boise State attended the fourth annual Oregon Bioengineering Symposium held on October 6, 2022, at the LaSells Stewart Center at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon.

The meeting covered all areas of biomedical engineering, highlighting innovations in methods, materials, and models. The goal of the meeting was to promote collaboration and exchange of ideas between students, researchers, and practitioners in Oregon and the surrounding region.

The symposium featured presentations, lightning talks, an industry panel discussion, and an in-person poster session; a virtual poster session also took place the day before the symposium. There were approximately 200 people in attendance and roughly 90 poster presenters.
