The 20th Annual Conference of the Bioengineering Section of the Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland gets underway on 24th January 2014. It is now established as one of Ireland's longest-running and most active research conferences in engineering and science.The conference is traditionally an occasion for young researchers and graduate students to present their work alongside senior researchers of international standing. The conference will be a forum for presentation and discussion of all aspects of bioengineering research, including (but not limited to) biomechanics, biomaterials, bioelectronics, tissue engineering, and medical devices. In addition to a full programme of research presentations, the conference will feature the Haughton lecture and the Engineers Ireland Biomedical Research Medal.
At the conference, The Engineers Ireland Biomedical Research Medal, which is sponsored by DePuy, will be awarded to a PhD student who has been judged by a select committee to be making a significant contribution to the field of biomedical engineering research. Finalists will be shortlisted for the award based on the submission of an abstract for the conference and the finalists will be invited to submit a 6 page research paper and will present their research in a plenary session on the opening day of the 2014 Bioengineering in Ireland conference.
UPDATE: Abstract deadline is Monday the 25th of November.
