Chair’s Message

We are pleased to announce that the 40th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference (NEBEC) will be held at Northeastern University in Boston, MA on April 25-27, 2014.

Plans are underway for a vibrant conference! The feature conference reception will be hosted on Saturday April 26 at the Prudential Center’s Top of the Hub, the tallest building overlooking Boston, providing a beautiful view of its skyline, the Charles River and neighboring Cambridge.

An outstanding organizational team stretching from eastern Canada, western Pennsylvania and south to Maryland is assembling an exciting program.

The conference features world-renowned plenary speakers and sessions designed to bridge advances spanning the molecular to human scale and applications ranging from biomedicine to bioenvironmental. In addition to oral presentations, three poster sessions, with one dedicated to the undergraduate design competition, provide ample opportunity to learn and share ideas and spark new directions and collaborations. Exhibitor booths are interwoven with coffee breaks and posters to provide abundant opportunity for networking, technology showcases and recruitment.

We invite members of academia, medical and industrial institutions, private foundations and government labs to join us for an engaging and rewarding Spring weekend in Boston at the 40th NEBEC.

The Call for Papers is now open, and attendees may now register.

We look forward to seeing you at NEBEC in April 2014!
