Bronco Biomecs Invade Ireland

Bronco Biomecs Invade Ireland

The Ha'Penny Bridge in Dublin

Eight students and faculty from the Biomedical Engineering program at Boise State University left last Friday for the 2018 World Congress of Biomechanics in Dublin, Ireland.

This international event is held once every four years and is the premier meeting worldwide in its field. Many of the world’s preeminent biomechanics organizations will hold their annual meetings in conjunction with the Congress.

In addition to the great professional and academic connections they’ll make at the Congress, four students will present posters, one will do a podium presentation, and one faculty member will offer a podium presentation for a student who could not attend. Dr. Clare Fitzpatrick, assistant professor, will be featured as an invited speaker at the event. While in Ireland, the group hopes to also tour Irish castles and the cliffs of Mohr, as well as celebrate the wrap-up of the conference at the Guinness storehouse.

Our Boise State representatives will be:

  • Derek Nesbitt: Masters level poster presentation
    MS student Mechanical & Biomedical Engineering
    Abstract title: High-Speed Strain Mapping of Human Meniscus During Tensile Loading
  • Edgar Rios: PhD level poster presentation
