BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING SOCIETY (SINGAPORE)
BES 6th Scientific Meeting
The Biomedical Engineering Society (BES) is holding its 6th Scientific Meeting (BES 6SM) on the 19th of May in University Town (NUS). Biomedical engineering is a multidisciplinary field gathering expertise in engineering, physics, chemistry, biology and medicine. Over the past 20 years, Singapore has attracted numerous biomedical companies (Invitrogen, Applied biosystem, Baxter, GlaxoSmithKline, Lonza, and many more) which together invested more than half-billion dollars in Singapore annually. The government has also invested S$6 billion between 2011 to 2015 (via A*Star) into the biomedical field. These investments indicate that biomedical engineering in Singapore holds immense potential and can provide groundbreaking scientific solutions to challenges in disease diagnostics, monitoring and therapeutics. Biomedical engineering also promises to be a fertile ground of job opportunities for future graduates of Singapore.
Distinction and merit certificates will be awarded along with cash prizes for the best presentations. BES 6SM also provides a unique opportunity to enrich your knowledge in biomedical engineering. In addition, participants will be able to interact with students, academic staff and industry professionals during networking sessions.
Date: 19 May 2012 (Saturday)
Time: 09:00am to 05:00pm
Venue: Ngee Ann Kongsi Auditorium, Education Resource Center, University Town, NUS
