The fifth annual Oregon Bioengineering Symposium is scheduled to take place on Friday, Nov. 3 at the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact. The symposium, which is co-sponsored by the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and Oregon Health & Science University, aims to bring together esteemed researchers, clinicians, and industry professionals from various bioengineering disciplines.
This year's conference theme, "Translating Ideas into Practice," emphasizes the importance of bridging the gap between theoretical concepts and practical applications within the field of bioengineering. Abstracts are under review for oral presentations and poster presentations that align with this theme and explore the latest advancements in bioengineering research.
For the first time, OBS will welcome an outside speaker for the featured keynote address. Dr. Jason Burdick, who is Bowman Endowed Professor of the BioFrontiers Institute and Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder, is the 2023 keynote speaker.
Registration for the symposium is now open. Early bird registration will be available until 5 pm (Pacific Time) on Sept. 15, 2023, offering participants the opportunity to secure their spots at a discounted rate. Regular registration will remain open until 5 pm (Pacific Time) on Oct.29, 2023.
