The field of bioengineering is rapidly growing nationally and globally due to engineering technology advances that facilitate breakthroughs in medicine and biology. Bioengineering is currently the fastest growing occupation in the US. At the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, there is a Bioengineering cluster of twenty engineering and John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) faculty active in the areas of biodevices and bioinspired design, bioimaging, biomechanics, cellular and molecular engineering, and systems biology.
The Bioengineering Research Symposium, sponsored by the UH Mānoa Colleges of Engineering and Medicine, and being held at JABSOMʻs Kakaʻako Campus, will give an overview of Bioengineering cluster research and education activities, and provide a networking opportunity for future collaborations.
The symposium begins at 9:00 a.m. in the Medical Education Building’s (MEB) Auditorium, Room 315. For early risers, a coffee hour precedes the event, beginning at 8:00 a.m. in the Kūlia Grill (MEB ground level).
