AAAS and Illinois co-sponsor visionary panel discussion on bioengineering
The American Association for the Advancement of Science and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign jointly sponsored "Visionary Frontiers at the Convergence of Biology, Medicine and Engineering," January 14, at the AAAS offices in Washington, D.C. The panel discussion focused on the future of bioengineering and included UI bioengineering leaders (pictured here, left to right) Gene Robinson, director of the Institute for Genomic Biology; John Rogers, director of the Materials Research Laboratory; and Rashid Bashir, head of the Department of Bioengineering. Among the biomedical engineering efforts highlighted were the development of better brain-computer interfaces, flexible implantable electronics, and lab-on-a-chip nanodevices, all of which are a part of bioengineering research at Illinois.
