UW Bioengineering Departmental Seminars

Thursdays, 12:30 – 1:30pm, Foege N130A (Wallace H. Coulter Seminar Room)

UW Bioengineering departmental seminars are held Thursdays during Winter and Spring quarter (January-June), and offer invited researchers a forum to discuss scientific problems related to bioengineering. Open discussion of problems is desired.

The seminar is open to members of the public and is also offered as an academic course (BIOEN 509).

For more information about BIOEN 509, students are encouraged to visit the UW Bioengineering Departmental Seminar Course Page.
