The rapid growth of the biomedical industry in Silicon Valley has spurred students and their professors to take action. SJSU will once again host the the Bay Area Biomedical Device Conference on March 27. “The conference is totally planned by the students, under the guidance of our faculty advisers,” said Co-Chair Daniel Khuc. The event brings together professionals, entrepreneurs, innovators, experts, students and faculty members for conversations meant to build connections and inspire innovation. The conference originates from the SJSU Chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society within the Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering. Many of the sessions cover technical topics such as transplantable organs, personalized molecular diagnostics and neurally controlled devices. But there’s something here for just about everyone. In the spirit of this year’s conference theme, “Improving the Quality of Life Through Innovation,” panel discussions will include “The Changing Landscape for Medical Devices” and “Healthcare Economics.” Learn more about the event.
