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. The full program information is available online here.
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 listed below.
