UW Bioengineering Professor Dr. Valerie Daggett is hosting December 2014’s UW Walker Ames lecturer, Dr. Michael Levitt, the Robert W. Vivian K. Cahill Professor of Cancer Research in the Department of Structural Biology at Stanford School of Medicine. Dr. Levitt is a 2013 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and was also Dr. Daggett’s postdoc advisor in the early 1990s.
UW Bioengineering Professor Dr. Paul Yager will present a talk at TEDxRainier 2014 on November 22nd. Dr. Yager, who served as UW BioE chair from 2007 to 2013, focuses on development of microfluidic devices and systems for analysis of biological fluids for use in biomedical diagnostics. The primary goal of his work is to expand access to healthcare by creating low-cost point-of-care diagnostic devices that can easily be used in low-resource settings.
Dr. Charles Murry, UW professor of pathology, cardiology and bioengineering, will present the first lecture in UW’s 2014 Engineering Lecture Series, “Engineering the Heart: From Cell Therapy to Computer Technology”. Dr. Murry will present a talk entitled “Engineering a Broken Heart”, on October 15, 2014.
This 2.5 day workshop includes lectures and surface analysis demonstrations. Demonstrations on NESAC/BIO instruments will provide application examples for the material covered in the workshop lectures. Attendees will learn the capabilities of biomedical surface analysis methods and how to intelligently review data received from surface analysis laboratories.
UW Bioengineering faculty, staff and students participated in Engineering Discovery days April 25-26, 2014, teaching bioengineers of all ages through exciting hands-on exhibits and activities.
Join the BIOE Affiliates Program for an Industry Spotlight event, Tuesday, 5/13/14, 6:00 PM, Foege Room N130A. This event will focus on Instrumentation, Imaging and Image-Guided Therapy.
In this interactive workshop, an invited guest speaker will present today’s best practices in networking and how to make the most out of our connections. Designed for maximum interaction among UW students, this workshop features a keynote speech and small group interactions with ample opportunities to put theory into practice.
Save the date! UW Bioengineering’s Graduation Celebration will be held on Friday, June 13th, 2014 in Hogness Auditorium
2014 Rushmer Lecture: Paul Yock, Stanford University: The (radically) changing landscape in biomedical technology innovation
Dr. Paul Yock, the Martha Meier Weiland Professor of Medicine and Mechanical Engineering (by courtesy) and Founding Co-Chair of Department of Bioengineering at Stanford University, will present the 26th Annual Rushmer Lecture. The Rushmer Lecture annually recognizes Robert F. Rushmer, the founder of UW Bioengineering.
Students are invited to join the BIOE-AP for an evening with industry. The event will explore how molecular-level interactions drive cellular behavior, and designing new molecular systems for medical applications.
