Bioengineering Insights 2009

Translating engineering and science into biomedical and biotechnological applications.

About Bioengineering Insights

UC Santa Barbara prides itself on strong interactive research efforts that focus on materials and computational research in biology, engineering, chemistry, and physics. The depth and strength of UC Santa Barbara’s bioengineering achievements have led to the genesis of a Bioengineering effort which ranked 2nd in the nation in Faculty Scholarly Productivity by the Chronicle of Higher Education in 2007.

At Bioengineering Insights 2009, our faculty and collaborators will showcase the science and technology at UC Santa Barbara that is making a major global impact.
