The Third USNCB Symposium on Frontiers in Biomechanics:
Mechanics of Development

June 21, 2011
Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, Farmington, PA (just prior to the Summer Bioengineering Conference)

In the fields of tissue engineering, synthetic biology, and regenerative medicine, much can be learned by studying how nature creates tissues and organs in the embryo. Accordingly, the last decade has seen rapidly expanding interest among engineers in developmental mechanics. Sponsored by the United States National Committee on Biomechanics (USNCB), this Frontiers Meeting will bring together biologists, engineers, and biophysicists to discuss the state of the art and future directions in this exciting field. The meeting will have a single track of oral sessions and free communications presented in poster format.

The speakers are set, but all are welcome to attend and submit abstracts for posters. For more information, please visit http://www.engineering.pitt.edu/USNCB2011/ . Please note, however, that the conference registration page is not yet available.
