UW Bioengineering welcomes BMES to Seattle
Seattle was host city to the 2013 Biomedical Engineering Society annual meeting, which was held September 25-28. UW Bioengineering students and faculty were present in force to welcome roughly 4,000 meeting attendees.
UW Bioengineering hosted an eye-catching booth front and center in the meeting’s exhibition hall, which featured attractive video displays, couches on which attendees could rest and chat amongst each other, and a cadre of department volunteers eager to answer questions. Several of the department’s students presented research at the meeting, sharing their discoveries and ideas with fellow bioengineers. In conjunction with the meeting, the department held a reception for over 300 students, faculty, friends, alumni and peers in the 35th floor Cirrus Ballroom of the Sheraton Seattle.

UW Bioengineering also provided meeting attendees the chance to get a first-hand look at the innovative research done in some of its hottest labs. The lab tours included stops at the W.H. Foege Bioengineering Building and the Molecular Engineering and Sciences Building (MolES) on UW’s main campus and the department’s facilities at UW Medicine’s South Lake Union (SLU) campus.
