The event opened with plenary keynote talks by nationally recognized leaders in academia and government, followed by lunch. In the afternoon, breakout sessions were taking place for IEM faculty members (or other interested parties including industrial colleagues) to discuss research collaborations opportunities relating to Cardiovascular Engineering, Neuroengineering, Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering, Medical and Biological Imaging, and Medical Devices. From mid-afternoon, there was a poster/networking session highlighting research of IEM faculty members and their groups included in the program. The retreat and conference shall offer rich opportunities to develop collaborations, and also learn more about how to responsively apply for IEM seed grants.
