On May 19th we hosted the 6th Annual UC Davis Biomedical Engineering Graduate Group Student Research Conference. Our keynote speaker, Professor Claudia Fischbach from Cornell University, gave a wonderful talk highlighting her career path and the need for interdisciplinary, collaborative research. The day was well-attended by students at all levels, along with many faculty, and the quality of research displayed in the oral and poster presentations was truly impressive.
We congratulate the following students who received special recognition for their presentations:
Best oral presentation: Jenna Harvestine (Leach lab)
Best poster presentation: Armaun Emami (Christiansen lab)
People’s choice award: Rafael Shimkunas (Chen-Izu lab)
We look forward to your participation in the the next student-led Research Conference.
