Theme of the 9th Annual Symposium
The goal of this symposium is to increase the synergistic interaction of UCís vast biomedical engineering research expertise with the practical medical and healthcare engineering undertaken by biomedical firms and a number of agencies in the government. Thus, biomedical institutions and firms are invited to attend to provide information about their contributions in the area of biomedical engineering. Corporate contributors will also be given the opportunity to judge both oral and poster presentations given by UC students.
