Undergraduate Research Day and Industry Connect

On April 8th, the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering at UF hosted a dynamic event that combined the energy of Undergraduate Research Day with the invaluable connections fostered by Industry Connect. Undergraduate Research Day served as a platform to spotlight the outstanding research projects undertaken by students throughout the academic year, while also igniting inspiration among peers within the biomedical engineering programs.

The day featured a showcase of 20 undergraduate poster presentations, each meticulously prepared by students who poured their dedication and expertise into their work. Faculty members and graduate students lent their discerning eyes to judge the posters, ultimately selecting deserving finalists. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to all the students who invested their time and effort into crafting compelling presentations that captivated and impressed.
