Slides from the presentations at the Bioengineering Research Symposium are available now on-line. The symposium, held February 16 at the University of Hawai’i Manoa’s John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM), provided an overview of research and education activities underway by the bioengineering cluster research team, which currently involves 20 faculty from JABSOM and the UH Manoa College of Engineering. The researchers are active in biodevices and bioinspired design, bioimaging, biomechanics, cellular and molecular engineering, and systems biology. Among them is Dr. Thomas Ernst, pictured here (Photo from The Queen’s Medical Center) at his lab, where he is developing an MRI motion correction device.
About 60 people attended the symposium, a level of interest consistent with the fact that the field of bioengineering is one of the fastest growing occupations in the US.
