Rising Stars Seminars

The “Rising Stars in Biological Engineering” seminar series is integrated into Princeton’s BioE Colloquium, which brings together our interdisciplinary Biological Engineering community, spanning a broad range of departments including Chemical & Biological Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Molecular Biology, and Physics. At Princeton, Biological Engineering means both the application of fundamental concepts from engineering and physics to probe biological systems, and the use of that knowledge to actively engineer these systems for human health and society.

The Rising Stars series highlights the next generation of BioE leaders. With nominations from colleagues around the globe, we seek to identify, honor and learn more about talented individuals at other institutions, at the Ph.D., postdoctoral and junior fellow levels. The format of the seminars will be two 30 minute slots, including significant discussion (i.e. 20 min research talk +10 min discussion). We welcome nominations (including self-nominations) of individuals from all backgrounds, including those from under-represented groups.

We will be reviewing submissions on a rolling basis.

Have a nominee? Please complete the Rising Stars Nomination Form for consideration until July 31, 2024 for the Fall 2024 series.
