Research

The Research Committee of BBUGS is a group whose role is to organize a number of events pertaining to research on campus, networking with clinicians, and exposure to the impacts that research brings to hospitals and businesses. Below are a few of the ongoing/upcoming events.

 

GaP Seminar Series

This year, BBUGS will be running the Graduate and Post-doc (GaP) Seminar Series for those who are interested in communicating their Bioscience/Bioengineering research to fellow researchers at Georgia Tech.
 
This is a great opportunity for both the speaker and audience to:
 
• Improve your presentation skills as a speaker
• Communicate science, research and technology to an audience with diverse backgrounds
• Practice giving your talk for an upcoming conference, thesis defense, or qualifying oral exams
• Enjoy free lunch and hear about the wide range of work happening in the local bioscience community
 
We will have GAP talks twice a month with two presenters. Each presentation will be approximately 20 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. Presenter sign-ups will be help one semester in advance and will be announced to the BBUGS Mailing List. Please see the BBUGS Events page for the complete schedule of seminars.

 

Conversations with Clinicians Series

The conversation series aims to promote informal dialogue between bioengineering & bioscience graduate students/faculty and clinician-scientists, with three end goals in mind:

  1. To expose researchers to the outstanding medical challenges that could be addressed with technological and scientific innovation
  2. For researchers to understand the process of translating research and technologies into clinical solutions
  3. For researchers to discuss their current work with physicians to obtain feedback on the clinical feasibility of their ideas.

These events are held in an informal discussion format in which the clinician will give a 30 minute presentation on their own research, as well as current state-of-the-art technologies and remaining challenges within their field of clinical expertise. The presentation will also address common barriers to translating research and how these obstacles can be overcome. This will be followed by a 30 minute dialogue in which the attendees will ask questions about their research or about the earlier presentation.

 

Hospital and Research Center Tours

We are eager to expose graduate students to lifestyle and environment of clinical research. Tours of places like St. Joseph's Translational Research Institute and Children's Hospital of Atlanta are ways for graduate students to talk with scientists and clinicians to become more informed on how research can help in these areas.

 

Techniques Symposium
Summer 2014

This three-day event will feature short seminars (45-60 min) and in-lab demonstrations (1-3 hrs) of different experimental techniques used around campus taught by graduate students, staff, and corporate representatives.  Courses range from traditional to cutting edge techniques and include topics such as Western Blotting, table top SEM, and Fast PCR.
