Program at a Glance

The conference begins at 11:00 am on Monday, June 22, 2015 and ends at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, June 24, 2015.

The UC Systemwide Bioengineering Symposium offers a well-established forum for faculty, researchers, and students from the 10 UC campuses to network, collaborate, and present the latest bioengineering research. This year’s symposium features exciting speakers from industry and academia, including invited faculty speakers and chairs from all 10 campuses and events with industry representatives and student poster and oral presentations. At the symposium shark tank, invited participants with bioengineering start-up ideas will pitch their concepts to a panel of faculty and corporate volunteers who challenge those concepts and award prizes to the best ones.
