2011 Summer Bioengineering ConferenceNemacolin Woodlands Resort
In the fields of tissue engineering, synthetic biology, and regenerative medicine, muchcan be learned by studying how naturecreates tissues and organs in the embryo. Accordingly, the last decade has seenrapidly expanding interest among engineers in developmental mechanics. This Frontiers Meeting will bring together biologists, engineers, and biophysicists to discuss the state of the art and future directions in this exciting field.
Keynote Speakers include:
Eric Wieschaus, Princeton University (1995 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine)
Roger Kamm, M.I.T.(Director of the Science and Technology Center on Emergent Behavior of Integrated Cellular Systems, EBICS)
Register for 3rd Frontiers Meeting by June 10th (separate from the SBC Meeting registration)
ALERT - Rooms will be released May 18th.
The deadline to submit an Abstract (May 13th) has passed.
Conference Co-Chairs:Larry Taber (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Lance Davidson (email@example.com)
