The University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University are
proud to host the 2021 Northeast Bioengineering Conference.
47th annual conference will focus on "New Research Frontiers and Educational Landscapes in Biomedical Engineering" with six key themes:
- Neural Engineering
- Regenerative Engineering
- Biomaterials and Biocompatibility
- Computational Biology
- Medical Product (Biomedical Devices)
- Education in Biomedical Engineering
The overarching objective of the NEBEC conference is to stimulate collaboration and promote biomedical engineering research and education
programs in the Northeast.
With the current state of the pandemic, we are planning for a virtual meeting Tuesday-Thursday, March 23-25, 2021.
The three-day conference will consist of an undergraduate design competition, keynote and faculty speakers, research and poster presentations,
and a special panel discussion on education in biomedical engineering. Attendees will have opportunities to network and learn more about the other biomedical engineering departments in the Northeast.
conference is jointly hosted by the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, two of the top-tier bioengineering programs in Pittsburgh and the nation. Pitt and CMU have
complementary strengths and a long history of research and educational collaborations, especially in the biomedical arena. Pitt is recognized for its strengths in biomedical research (ranked 5th in
NIH funding) and clinical excellence (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, UPMC), with bioengineering strengths in cell/tissue/organ engineering, biomechanics, neural engineering, molecular,
cellular, and systems engineering, and medical devices. CMU is recognized for its strengths in robotics and artificial intelligence and engineering (CMU ranked 4th in USNWR graduate engineering
school ranking), with biomedical engineering strengths in neural engineering, tissue/cell engineering, biomaterials, computational BME, and medical devices. In addition to research collaborations,
faculty members, graduate students and undergraduate students from both institutions interact extensively with Pitt medical faculty (biomedical scientists and clinicians) in the educational arena. We
look forward to the conference and hosting you virtually in Pittsburgh! If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
