This was the fun at Bioengineering Day 2014

Renowned neuroscientist Terry Sejnowski delivered the keynote address at this year's Bioengineering Day, on the morning of Saturday, April 12, at the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine.
He was followed by a distinguished roster of speakers in the afternoon, including Dr. Doris Taylor, the director of regenerative medicine research at the Texas Heart Institute, Dr. Gerardo Toledo, senior director of microbial discovery at Synthetic Genomics and Kabir Kasargod, director of business development at Qualcomm life.
Graduate and undergraduate students also presented posters on a wide variety of topics, including traction forces that regulate early fate decisions in embryonic stem cells;  smart matrices as dynamic scaffolds for stem cell differentiation; and designer gene circuits for basic science, engineering and medicines, among many, many others.
The day's events also included a networking reception, a quiz bowl and awards.
