The 2023 Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) annual meeting will be held in Seattle October 11-14, with UW Bioengineering Assistant Professor Kelly Stevens serving as co-chair.  Thousands of bioengineering community members will come together to present their research, discuss pressing global health concerns, explore networking and career development opportunities and much more. This year’s theme is focused on three pillars essential to the biomedical engineering field’s success: Science, Technology and Social Transformation.

BioE will host two workshops during the event, both of which will be held in the Foege Bioengineering Building on the main UW Seattle campus.

Publishing Reproducible Computational Models Workshop

One of the cornerstones of the scientific method is reproducibility. In this workshop, Professor Herbert Sauro and presenters from the Sauro lab will go over different methods and practical exercises for ensuring that computational models are reproducible and/or repeatable. They will also introduce the process for building and simulating biochemical models using Python.

Date and time: Wednesday, October 11, 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.

Drug Development Pathway Workshop

In this workshop, Associate Teaching Professor Robbie Wong will cover topics relating to drug development, including how to file a New Drug Application (NDA) or Biologics License Application (BLA) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This workshop provides an excellent opportunity for those interested in learning more about the intersections between the science and business sides of biomedical engineering.

Date and time: Wednesday, October 11, 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

Spaces for both workshops are limited. Students, staff, faculty and industry members interested in attending are encouraged to register soon.
