To expose EDBB students to research in Bioengineering through attendance of lecture series given by EDBB students and external speakers. The objectives are to broaden the knowledge of students in the field of Bioengineering and expose them to the diversity of studies in the IBI community.


This cross-disciplinary, seminar-based course will increase EDBB students' exposure to a broad range of fields of research and reinforce interactions within the Institute of Bioengineering (IBI) at the intersection between the School of Life Sciences and the School of Engineering.

The course comprises a series of seminars along the academic year in various fields of Bioengineering given either by EDBB students in the final years of their PhD and external speakers.

Seminars will include an introduction of the research field in order to be understandable despite the diversity of covered topics, and will aim to foster general discussions. This course will therefore serve as an extended journal-club involving the large community of EDBB students.


To obtain 1 credit for this class, you must:

a) have attended at least 9 of the 11 yearly sessions (remember to enroll through IS-Academia and have your attendance sheet signed each time you participate)

b) have given a presentation in the frame of the IBI-EDBB Mini-symposia series (preferably in 3rd year).

Once both steps are done, please kindly submit your completed attendance sheet to the EDBB administration office for processing.
