Seminar Series

CBME 802 - Biomedical Engineering Seminar Series

The Biomedical Engineering Seminar Series is presented in the fall and winter terms. Regular seminars are scheduled once a month during the term, but special seminars may be held in addition to the regularly scheduled talks.

To complete CBME 802:

Master's students must attend at least 80% of the CBME seminars per year and present one research seminar on his/her thesis work.

Doctoral students must attend at least 80% of the CBME seminars per year and present two research seminars on his/her thesis work.

Seminar themes:

Each seminar will fall into one of three categories: research, training, or clinical. Research seminars will be broadly based, involving aspects of biomedical engineering, biomechanics, biomedical computing, mobility, rehabilitation and ergonomics. Training seminars will cover topics of interest that would not normally be covered in course-based material, e.g. patents and intellectual property, research approaches and experimental design, effective communication of research results, and media relations. Clinical seminars may cover any area of clinical practice which is relevant to research in the areas noted above.

Suggestions for possible speakers or topic areas are welcomed. If you have ideas for future seminars, please e-mail us at:
