On October 6, a group of BME students and two faculty members (Dr. Yawen Li and Dr. Michael Lancina) attended the Biomaterials Day Symposium sponsored by the Society of Biomaterials and hosted by the University of Michigan. The symposium has a keynote speaker (Dr. Bill Wagner from the University of Pittsburgh) and other invited speakers, industry and faculty career development panels centered on recent advances in biomaterials, and over 80 student oral/poster presentations. Over 200 undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and faculty from 17 universities in the upper midwest attended the one-day event.

Five LTU students (Nicole Ravenscroft, Andrew Lyzen, John Peponis, Angelica Guardia and Kathm Alismail) presented their research at the poster session, and had a lot of productive discussions with students and faculty from other universities. The symposium was a perfect venue for LTU students in the Advanced Biomaterials course ( BME 6213/5093) taught by Dr. Li this semester, to see research on this topic.
