Abstract : The theme of this conference was to increase the synergistic interaction of the University of California's vast biomedical engineering research expertise with the practical medical and healthcare engineering undertaken by biomedical firms and government agencies. The symposium had 204 attendees representing all ten UC campuses as well as interested corporate and government agencies and individuals in the community. The symposium was supported by seven corporate sponsors and had four partnerships with industrial and government agencies. The symposium had twelve tracks that covered a broad range of topics to represent most research in Bioengineering at the University of California. In all, 48 talks and 49 posters were presented. In addition, five major presentations were given including three keynote speakers and two speakers representing TATRC. Through our generous corporate support, twelve cash awards totaling $5,000 were given to student oral and poster presenters who were judged to be outstanding. Judges were members of the UC, US Army Medical Research ACQ and our corporate sponsors. The program schedule is attached.
