    Summary: This is the eleventh regional meeting of biomechanicians in the Pacific Northwest. The symposium focuses on student learning, collaboration, and knowledge transfer. This year, the symposium returns home to its roots at the University of Washington. We hope to host a meeting with excellent student presentations and group discussions which celebrate diverse biomechanical research from across our region.
