  7. 7. BMES 2011 Meeting Welcome Thomas Webster, PhD Annual Meeting Chair Brown UniversityW elcome to New England and the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, the Northeast’s newest Convention Center ideally located close to numerous hospitals, universities, and BME indus- tries. For those of you new to Hartford, it is a city rich in history, Connecticut after all is nicknamed the “Constitu- tion State.” In 1868, Mark Twain wrote “Of all the beautiful towns it has been my fortune to see this [Hartford]is the chief.” The Convention Center is just steps from Downtown Hartford, overlooking the beautiful Connecticut River at Adriaen’sLanding, the city’s exciting new riverfront district — so take advantage of the free hotel and downtown shuttles to explore (just notduring the meeting). Hartford has been often called the “Insurance Capital of World” generating more economic activity than sixteenU.S. states, but today and this week, it will definitely be the “Biomedical Engineering Capital of the World”.Hartford is also home to the new Connecticut Science Center which currently boasts 6 floors of over 150 hands-on exhibits, a state-of-the-art 3D digital theater, and four educational labs which makes it perfect for endless exploration for children, teens and adults. A twominute walk from the Connecticut Convention Center, we will take advantage of this inspirational Science Center for our Friday NightCelebration so that we can mingle, network, and refresh our excitement towards science — be sure to check out the Sports Lab andPicture of Health exhibits!This year at the BMES Annual Meeting, some things are the same, but a lot is new. We have worked very hard over the past year toput together a stimulating program featuring over 2000 presentations covering all aspects of Biomedical Engineering. While we areconfident that the tradition of a strong BMES meeting will continue this year, we have made a number of key changes for improvement.Since our theme is: “Fostering Collaborative Academic, Clinical, and Industrial Research in Biomedical Engineering,” one of our goalswas to increase participation among clinicians, academics, and industry. Of course, New England is home to a number of biomedicalindustries which has brought new faces to our exhibit hall, and new supporters, with a first time ever Diamond Supporter from NewEngland’s own Covidien (thanks to all of our supporters). To increase clinical participation, for the first time ever, we have incorporatedContinuing Medical Education (CMEs) Credits into the program. For those that do not know, it is required that clinicians complete acertain number of CMEs every year and we hope that this new direction for BMES will continue in the years to come to improve clini-cal participation. As New England is home to more than 300 Universities and Colleges, the strong academic presence at BMES willcontinue this year. We have also continued the well received “Meet the Faculty Candidate” event to help our newest graduates findjobs and we will have a special birthday to celebrate this year—Dr. Shu Chien turns 80 ! (be sure to check out the special symposiumin his honor—party hats required).On a more practical level, this year, we moved into a longer abstract format, incorporated required financial disclosures of presentersto become a more open society, and established stronger guidelines for abstract reviews. A longer abstract format improves our soci-ety by increasing quality and providing more information for assessment. It is also anticipated that the new longer abstract format willincrease research visibility both in terms of references in scholarly journals and presentations.So get out there BMES attendees, catch up with old friends, meet new people, and have a great meeting (just don’t eat toomuch lobster) !Thomas Webster, PhDAnnual Meeting Chair6 BMES 2011

  9. 9. Karen M. Haberstroh, PhD Program Chair Brown UniversityW elcome to BMES 2011 and to Hartford, CT! This years meeting promises to be very excit- ing. From systems biology to tissue engineering - it includes tracks and sessions that have been well-received in previous years, and also features some new biomedical engineering research and educational sessions. Of note, the technical program now highlights multiple sessions andpanels focused on translational biomedical engineering and industrial collaborations, including “Clinical and Trans-lational Research and Science in Biomedical Engineering” and “Research to Practice (R2P)”. In total, the meetingcontains 14 concurrent sessions, 704 oral presentations, and 1,357 poster presentations, and represents speakerschosen from over 2,188 submitted abstracts. In addition, we have an excellent representation of undergraduatestudent presenters, as highlighted in the Saturday afternoon undergraduate sessions. Please attend their talks andsupport the next generation of biomedical engineers!We know that there were a lot of changes put into effect with this years meeting, including a new one page abstract,a new abstract scoring rubric, and an earlier abstract deadline. We appreciate everyones patience in this process andhope is that these have all helped to ensure the highest quality of technical presentations in each of these excitingareas.Before we all head to our favorite sessions, Id like to take this opportunity to thank a few people that have helped tomake this meeting a success. First and foremost, Id like thank the staff at BMES for their patience and guidance inthis process - I now (fully) appreciate all of the hard work that goes into planning a meeting of this scale, and I hopethat the staff knows how much they are appreciated and valued. Debby Tucker, in particular, has spent endless hourscommunicating with myself, the track chairs, Mira, researchers, and the Hartford convention center, among others;she has aided in creating not only a fantastic technical and social agenda, but also a high quality and professionalmeeting program. I would also like to thank all of the track chairs, reviewers, and session chairs - as specialists intheir fields, these scientists have each volunteered their (extensive) time and effort to this event, and I truly appreci-ate all of their hard work. Id like to thank the meeting co-chairs, Tom Webster and Don Peterson, who together havehelped the BMES staff and I pull off this monumental event. Finally, Id like to thank all of the previous meeting andtechnical chairs - I now understand the hard work and care that they donated in making their own BMES meeting runsmoothly. We are very fortunate to have members so dedicated to this society, and to making this annual meetinga success!Again, welcome to Hartford and enjoy BMES 2011!Karen HaberstrohTechnical Program Chair8 BMES 2011

This is most evident in the excellent boxed examples, but also in many of the homework problems.

Since motor learning and neuroplasticity occur in response to the physical effects of motion, his group manipulates the physics of motor tasks with robots to try to enhance motor learning, developing and drawing on computational models of neuromotor learning and plasticity to provide a rational framework for device development. Increasingly his group is interested in combining technologies for movement training with regenerative therapies, including stem cell therapies. His group is also seeking to develop sensor-based technol- ogies for movement evaluation that improve insight into regenera- tive clinical trials by enabling continuous, high-resolution assessment of neuro-muscular control.
