2016 NEBEC | Binghamton University







Dr. Kaiming Ye




Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Welcome to the 42nd Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference (NEBEC) held at Binghamton University (BU), State University of New York (SUNY) in Vestal, NY. The Biomedical Engineering program at Binghamton University was formed in 2002, and received New York State approval to offer a bioengineering degree program in the summer of 2003. The department and its degree program were renamed to Biomedical Engineering in December 2014. The program is designed to prepare students for leadership positions in biomedical industry, academia, business, education and entrepreneurship and for success in a global environment. Our distinguished faculty includes internationally renowned researchers in areas such as advanced biomanufacturing, 3D bioprinting, stem cell and regenerative medicine, organs-on-a-chip, nanomedicine, biomaterials, biomechanics, point-of-care diagnosis, medical devices, toxicology and pharmacology, and computational biology.

We are proud to host the 2016 NEBEC. This year's conference will focus on "New Biomedical Frontiers for the 21st Century." The overarching objective of the conference is to stimulate collaboration and promote biomedical engineering research and education programs in the Northeast. The rapid growth of biomedical industries and biomedical education programs in the Northeast offers new opportunities to spur research, education, industry growth and innovation in biomedical engineering. The two and half day conference will consist of an undergraduate design competition, graduate research poster competition, biomedical and biotechnology career fair, keynote and plenary speakers, research and poster presentations, and panel discussions on emerging biomedical technologies. The conference session tracks include Career Development in Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology, Regenerative Medicine & Stem Cell Engineering, Biomaterials and Cancer Engineering, Bio-MEMS and Biomedical Devices, Biomedical Imaging, Tissue Engineering and 3D Bioprinting, Synthetic and Systems Biology, Nanomedicines, Biofilms and Pharmacology, Biomechanics, and Neuroscience/technology and Cognitive Science. In addition, the conference plans to have two competitions including an Undergraduate Design Competition and a Graduate Research Poster Award Competition. Academic leaders in the field will be invited to speak on the current state of technology in key areas of biomedical science and engineering.  Career Exploration Sessions will provide a wealth of career information and ample networking opportunities for students to learn about careers from alumni working in industry, academia, government, law and medicine. Attendees will have opportunities to learn about intern/coop programs.

We look forward to the conference and hosting you at Binghamton University.
