2018 Program of Seminars
Introduction The Bioengineering Seminars consist of a series of workshops and talks organised at the University of Southampton with the aim to disseminate the recent advances in research belonging to bioengineering. One of the overarching goals is to engage and inspire a multidisciplinary audience (students, staff, professors, and researchers) of different faculties to learn and interact with the speakers in a low-key environment. The seminar series is financially supported by the Bioengineering Science Group (Faculty of Engineering and Environment), Faculty of Medicine and Institute for Life Sciences (ifLS). The seminars are advertised on Twitter @BiosemSoton, on Facebook, and on the webpage of the Faculty of Engineering and Environment. The specific objectives of the seminars are the following: a) Two-way research sharing between the University of Southampton and the invited speaker b) Lab tour at University of Southampton to establish further collaborations between the speaker and some of the interested research groups at University c) The organisation of workshops in combination with the seminars to show the most recent advances in bioengineering at the University of Southampton involving multidisciplinary teams d) They offer a chance for students in bioengineering to meet the speaker and other students for an exchange of ideas.
