WCB 2014Congrats to Dave Bell (mechanical engineering PhD candidate), Nan-Wei Liu (bioengineering PhD candidate), Matt Converse (mechanical engineering PhD candidate), and Kevin Nye (mechanical engineering masters candidate) who will present at the World Congress of Biomechanics in Boston July 6-11, 2014!

The World Congress of Biomechanics is an international meeting held once every four years, rotating among Europe, Asia and the Americas. This, the 7th WCB, will once again bring together engineers, scientists from various disciplines including biology, physics, mathematics, computer science, chemistry and various clinical specialties. Applications range from basic biology to medical devices to the latest technologies. Researchers, engineers from industry, medical doctors, academics, and students are all welcome. Vendor exhibitions will highlight the latest technologies, publications, and medical devices.

Advised by mechanical engineering associate professor Ken Monson, these students are part of the mechanical engineering Head Injury and Vessel Biomechanics Lab.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah is committed to providing students with broad-based, rigorous and progressive education. By combining state-of-the-art facilities with renowned faculty, the department provides an education that gives students the necessary skills to become the next generation of innovators.
