April 9 - 10, 2021
Virtually, Everywhere

Register Now! The early registration rate is available until March 9.

As the COVID-19 pandemic erupted in early 2020, the Institute of Biological Engineering was unable to hold its annual conference last year. With the pandemic still a factor affecting all of our lives, and in order to continue to offer important educational and networking opportunities to our community, IBE is excited to announce that its 2021 Annual Conference will be held virtually, on April 9 - 10!

The IBE Annual Conference is a gathering of the world’s leading researchers and educators in biological engineering, who share a passion for building a better future.

The diverse makeup of the conference is a catalyst for multidisciplinary interactions between attendees who actively participate in shaping the biological engineering profession. Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to attend. The conference is an excellent opportunity to develop professional skills and network with peers in the industry.

IBE was established in 1995 to form a nexus of engineers and scientists in industry and academia to promote a new discipline of engineering focused on the remarkable features of living systems. IBE is bringing Engineering to Life through Biology-Inspired Engineering.
