Friday, June 15, 2012Co-organizers Drs. Elizabeth Cosgriff-Hernandez and Melissa Grunlan invite you to attend the 2012 Biomaterials Day, Friday July 27 at Rice University. Sponsored by the Society for Biomaterials (SFB), this year’s symposium offers networking opportunities, a poster competition, and presentations by leading engineers, physicians, and scientists in the field who will showcase ongoing research in the region. Awards will be given for best undergrad and graduate posters. Abstracts are due July 9.
SFB officially initiated the Biomaterials Day program in 2008 to highlight cutting-edge research and increase student interest in biomaterials careers. Travel grants are available for out-of-town students.Download the flyer or visit the Biomaterials Symposium website to learn more and register for the symposium.

If you missed Dr. Coté's interview on KAMU TV's Brazos Valley Magazine, you can catch the repeat episode July 5 @ 8pm, July 7 @ 6pm, and July 8 @ 5pm. KAMU TV Listings.
KAMU TV and Brazos Valley Magazine, a weekly community affairs show, will air an interview with biomedical engineering department head Dr. Gerard Coté, May 31 at 8:00 p.m., June 7 at 8:30 p.m., June 9 at 6:00 p.m., and June 10 at 5 p.m. CST. Dr. Coté will discuss his work in optical sensors for in vitro and in vivo medical diagnosis and monitoring.
Dr. Cote's recent interview will repeat as segment two on KAMU TV's Brazos Valley Magazine on July 5 at 8 PM, July 7 at 6 PM and July 8 at 5 PM.
May 23 - 25, 2012The BioMedOpTex Symposium will bring together researchers from across Texas and the United States to stimulate discussion about new trends and progress made in biomedical optical technologies and applications in diagnostics and therapeutics to improve public health worldwide.
March 6, 2012QUANTUM OPTICS/ AMO PHYSICS SEMINAR SERIES: Speaker: Vladislav Yakovlev, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Texas A&M University Title: "Ultrasensitive Detection of Contaminants in Water Using Deep-UV Raman Spectroscopy" Tuesday, March 6, 11:30 a.m. IQSE 578, Mitchell Physics Building Institute for Quantum Science and Engineering, Texas A&M University
Dr. Vladislav Yakovlev will describe the new sensor architecture (combining deep-UV excitation with non-plasmonic, non-absorbing signal enhancing sensor, we have achieved real-time detection of nanomolar-level concentrations), demonstrate results on detecting several compounds, which are identified by the Environmental Protection Agency as potentially hazardous, and describe recent advances on the deep-UV Raman spectroscopy instrumentation development.
