The CBE Graduate Research Symposium is a forum hosted in the fall for CBE graduate students to present their research to a diverse audience comprised of peers, department faculty, alumni, and guests from industry and academia. Over the course of the day, students will showcase research from a wide range of disciplines, including energy and sustainability, nano- and micro-fluidics, simulation and theory, systems engineering, materials science, nanotechnology, and bioengineering.
