BME Undergraduate Research Day

On April 14, the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering at UF hosted Undergraduate Research Day. Undergraduate Research Day is designed to showcase the quality of student research projects conducted during the academic year, as well as to inspire classmates in the biomedical engineering programs to pursue their research.

We had thirty-six undergraduate poster presentations with faculty and graduate students judging the posters and selected finalists. Thank you to all the students who worked hard preparing for your presentations!
