The 1st Annual SCI Transdisciplinary Symposium held on April 26, 2016, was a great success!
We had over 100 total registered participants and 50 speakers presenting on topics (see link to PDF program below).
Due to the generous support of participating departments (Bioengineering; Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering; Chemistry; Materials Science and NanoEngineering) and the John J. Fannaly Nanotechnology Fund, we were able to award a total of 18 Travel Awards to students (see below).
