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."
