Summary: Eastern Ontario CBS Symposium 2017

Summary: Eastern Ontario CBS Symposium 2017

The first annual Eastern Ontario CBS symposium, held on May 19th in the Human Mobility Research Centre of Kingston General Hospital, was a HUGE success! Students who were presenting at the 33rd Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Biomaterials Society were able to practice their presentations and receive valuable feedback from their peers. A very special highlight from the event was an outstanding keynote presentation given by Dr. Isabelle Catelas from the University of Ottawa. We were very excited to also have some members from the CBS Ottawa Student Chapter (CBS-OSC) join us at this event, and can’t wait to collaborate on more events in the future!

Our attendees included undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, principal investigators from a wide variety of departments, including chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, and biomedical science, from both Queen’s University and the University of Ottawa. We even had HMRC employees stop in to check out the poster session!

We would like to congratulate our winners for Best Presentation: William Chaplin (oral) and Srijit Nair (poster). Looking forward to making the event even better next year!
