University of Arkansas (UA) students and faculty recently attended the 2016 Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where they learned about research developments in their field and presented their own research.
"The BMES conference was a great
opportunity to become better apprised of the many diverse areas of biomedical
research,” graduate student Kevin Roberts, who presented a poster, said. “Discussing
our research one-on-one with faculty and students from across the country was a
very gratifying experience."
The four UA undergraduate students and two
graduate students at the meeting also had the opportunity to network with other
researchers and benefit from learning about their progress.
"It's always interesting and
informative to see how your specific area in the field of biomedical
engineering is progressing in terms of research,” graduate student John
Kim said. “Especially with the oral presentations, you may learn about a technique
researchers used for something totally unrelated to your work but you may find
that one nugget of information that may provide you with a tool that you can
adapt to your own research. Presenting a poster was fun as it gave me a chance
to speak with my peers about our research and theirs as well."
