BMES Attends National Conference

TCNJ’s BMES student chapter with the aid of the Department of Engineering sent eleven students to the Biomedical Engineering Society’s National Conference in Hartford, CT. Several students presented posters on their research conducted at TCNJ as well as at other universities.   The conference offered the opportunity to learn about current research and developments from universities across the country as well as the  chance to network with companies and graduate schools. The trip was an eye-opening experience for all.
