BioE Undergraduate Research
Presentations and Publications

The Department of Bioengineering is proud of the many research accomplishments of our undergraduates. We encourage our students to participate in research opportunities that can be found with our extensive affiliated faculty and throughout the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center). The extensive breadth of interest and depth of knowledge displayed by our undergraduates is reflected in presentations at professional conferences, publications in professional journals, and the Intramural Internship program.

Intramural Internship Abstracts

Our undergraduates are actively involved in many research projects that span the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, Dental Medicine, and others. Research mentors welcome our students into their labs, where the students make valuable contributions to the mentors' research efforts. Perusal of the abstracts reveals the wide scope of research activities available to our students. Prospective undergraduate researchers can identify potential areas of research interest and potential lab mentors through the abstracts.
