The International Multilateral Symposium of Graduate on Biomedical Engineering was successfully held in the Conference Room 416 of Yifu Science Center, Beihang University. Eleven distinguished postgraduate students from four top European and American universities, namely, Colombia University, the University of Michigan, Stony Brook University, and the University of Strathclyde, attended the symposium, together with some of the faculty and postgraduate students from the School of Biological Science and Medical Engineering of Beihang. Guo Meng, Secretary of the school’s Chinese Communist Youth League Committee, hosted the Symposium.
Hou Dandan, the school’s Deputy Party Secretary, delivered the opening address by extending a warm welcome to the foreign students at the event, saying that the symposium aims to promote academic communications, exchange of thoughts, innovation and cooperation.
The symposium lasted for two days and centered on five issues, “Biomaterials and Tissues Engineering”, “Musculoskeletal Biomechanics”, “Rehabilitation and biomechanics”, “Genetics, Toxicology and Molecular cell”, and “Bioinstrumentation”. During the 19 academic reports, participating students home and abroad shared and discussed with one another their knowledge and views on the latest developments in the fields concerned.
The symposium proved to be a great opportunity for Beihang to deepen academic relations with first-class universities from Europe and America, especially on the subject of biological science and medical engineering.
