Please join us for this rare opportunity to hear from one of Cornell’s biomedical engineering leaders about Cornell’s biomedical vision and latest research. Dr. van der Meulen is the principal architect of the Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Major and has a unique perspective on bioengineering throughout the college. In her own research, she collaborates with faculty across the campus and university, including, but not limited to, Weill Cornell and the Hospital for Special Surgery.Professor van der Meulen will be traveling to Ireland in July and would love to join you and local alumni for an informal get-together on July 12th in the Harbourmaster Bar in the IFSC at 6pm.
Dr. van der Meulen is interested in learning from you how to better prepare our students for entry into the European biotech and medical device industries. This small, conversational setting will allow attendees to hear updates on Cornell’s cutting edge biomedical research including the Neurotech initiative and biotechnology. Alternatively, come along for a social mid summer drink.
Location: Thursday, July 12, 2018
Time: 6-8pm ( I will be there from 5:30pm to ensure we have a table)
