Event Highlights:

Keynote Presentations: This year we are highlighting the research of two junior SBME’s faculty members: Drs. Govind Kaigala and Manu Madhav.

Trainee Talks: Select Masters and PhD BME students will present their research in short Trainee Talks. Come support them as they develop their presentation and communication skills!

Poster Session: There is such a diverse range of biomedical research excellence at SBME. Our Poster Session gives graduate BME students the chance to share their findings with the community. Lunch will be served! (Make sure to RSVP to reserve your lunch)

Costume Contest: Inject a bit of fun into the day by participating in our costume contest. Get creative and showcase your spookiest (or non-spooky!) Halloween costume. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.

Panel Discussion: Interested in a career as a biomedical engineering professor? Curious about the professorship application process? This panel will discuss the process of applying for a professorship, including the often mysterious “chalk talk”.

Mock Chalk Talks: Speaking of the mysterious “chalk talk”, two postdocs will be given the opportunity to present a half hour chalk talk and to receive feedback. This is a unique and rare opportunity, so if you are interested make sure to register!

Prizes and Awards: Recognizing excellence in research, we will present awards and prizes to outstanding contributors in various categories. Be there to applaud the hard work and dedication of our students!

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of biomedical engineering, engage with cutting-edge research, and celebrate the achievements of our talented researchers. UBC School of Biomedical Engineering Research Day is an event that promises inspiration, knowledge sharing, and the chance to be part of the future of healthcare technology.
