Pitch Night, Another Great Success for BMES!
To meet the diverse interests of both our undergraduate and graduate students BMES hosts events to facilitate collaboration between industry partners, medical professionals, and researchers. We often find that there are many unmet needs and concepts that require the expertise of a bioengineer, however, many of these opportunities are missed. Pitch Night offers a platform for potential PI’s to recruit students for projects and research opportunities. In these five minute pitches, presenters pitched ideas in basic science, translational/clinical medicine, and device engineering. We’ve found that our students are able to learn more about cutting edge research and industry opportunities as well as the variety of research happening on this campus. In doing so we are able to help match our students with opportunities that interest them and meet the needs of potential PI’s. The goal is to match graduate students with projects, provide research opportunities to upperclass undergraduates, and reveal potential avenues of study freshman and sophomores.
