Final week to register for March IBE meeting at reduced rates!

Well over 100 abstracts have been received for a wide range of oral and poster presentations for the Annual IBE meeting on March 19 - 21 in Athens, Georgia.  The keynote speakers will be Dr. Karen Burg (University of Georgia) and Dr. Delphine Dean (Clemson University).  The registration deadline to obtain reduced fees is January 31. 

Student Bioethics Essay Competition continues…

An annual staple at the IBE conference is the Student Bioethics Essay Competition. Don’t forget the Student Bioethics Essay Contest (essay submissions are due February 7). Fees are quite reasonable, and we hope to see many students participate in the conference. Get involved with your IBE by seeking nomination to the Council, or volunteer your time.

Participate in the USDA-AFRI-IBE Workshop on Convergence in Bioengineering

On the Thursday (March 19) before the IBE conference, there will be a workshop on convergence.  This event is the perfect venue to meet with the experts studying convergence, and get the hands-on experiences to understand and incorporate convergence into what you are doing.  Please see the website:

Member-Recruit-Member Campaign Continues!

We still have a deal for you!  Any IBE member can recruit just two new members to IBE and obtain a one year complimentary membership.  This is a great opportunity for those involved in Biological Engineering to engage with IBE programs. Moreover, we now have three membership periods to choose from…starting either January 1, May 1 or September 1. So, there is no better time to share IBE with your colleagues.  To join visit


Get involved

IBE encourages inquiry and interest in biological engineering, the emerging discipline that applies biological systems to enhance the quality and diversity of life. Biological engineering lies at the interfaces of biological sciences, engineering sciences, mathematics and computational sciences.
