For one thing, it is a highly collaborative field where bioengineers work with molecular biologists, neuroscientists, pathologists, clinicians, and physical therapists. Think regenerative medicine, smart arms (robotic prosthetic limbs), smart homes (designed to support individuals), and so much more!
Each workshop has a specialty focus – check the dates and times for choices – cell & organ, neural, and biomechanic specialties. Meet PhD students who'll share their career paths and experiences. Students will engage in a hands-on challenge.
Presented by University of Pittsburgh's Bioengineering Department and Biomedical Engineering Society.
Science and technology topics include:
Biotechnology, Biology, and Medicine

MS-LS4-6. Use mathematical representations to support explanations of how natural selection may lead to increases and decreases of specific traits in populations over time.
HS-LS3-1. Ask questions to clarify relationships about the role of DNA and chromosomes in coding the instructions for characteristic traits passed from parents to offspring.
