First Annual Statewide Research Symposium on Biomedical Science and Engineering

  • January 19, 2022

The University of Maine’s Institute of Medicine has announced the First Annual Statewide Research Symposium on Biomedical Science and Engineering, planned for October 13 and 14, 2022.

MDI Biological Laboratory is proud to partner with the University of Maine, University of New England, Jackson Laboratory, the Roux Institute, Northern Light Healthcare and Maine Health to sponsor this statewide research symposium covering biomedical sciences and engineering.

The symposium will highlight the diverse and state-of-the-art work being carried out in Maine’s public and private academic institutions, healthcare systems and private industry as it relates to biological and physiological disciplines, medicine, biomedical engineering and data science. The event will take place at the University of New England Innovation Hall in Portland, Maine and it is hoped that the symposium will draw a wide audience across these fields by showcasing Maine’s rapidly expanding network of research scientists and institutions engaged in biomedical research, including in the clinical and engineering fields.

This symposium will complement and augment the upcoming 49th annual Maine Biological and Medical Sciences Symposium (MBMSS), which is taking place at the MDI Biological Laboratory’s Salisbury Cove campus on April 22 and 23. MBMSS is the largest state-wide symposium of it’s kind. This year’s keynote speaker is Connie Cepko, Ph.D., Bullard Professor of Genetics and Neuroscience at Harvard Medical School and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract for the October symposium of no longer than 300 words by April 1, 2022 on the University of Maine’s Institute of Medicine website.
