Join us for the Bioengineering Seminar Series, which connects experts from around the country with our faculty, students, and staff to discuss their recent findings. Everyone is welcome!

Regular seminars are held in person in A. James Clark Hall Room 2121 on Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – 9:50 a.m. unless otherwise noted. Virtual-only seminars will still be streamed for graduate students in Clark Hall #2121 unless otherwise noted. All BIOE faculty, students, staff, postdocs, and affiliates as well as additional subscribers to our weekly seminars emails receive reminders—including Zoom event information when applicable—the week of each seminar. 

BIOE Special Seminar speaker bios and abstracts are announced via our department listserv only and are not open to the general public. If you have a question about an upcoming Special Seminar, please email

If you do not yet receive our weekly seminars email and would like to subscribe to the listserv, or if there is a particular seminar listed below that you would like to attend, please sign up online. Emails are traditionally sent on Monday mornings, with a reminder email on the morning of any scheduled BIOE seminars.
