  • Location: Communicore Building, Room C1-17
  • Description: Our first GBM of the semester had such a fantastic turnout. It's time for round two! Our speaker will be Dr. Hudalla of the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering. Dr. Hudalla's research focuses on protein assembly and developing biomaterials with integrated immunomodulatory enzymes as a new treatment modality for inflammatory disease. For more information on his lab's research, visit the Hudalla Lab website.
  • Aftersocial: Trivia with your society, 8:30PM at Gator's Dockside

Third GBM

  • Speaker: Dr. Ferris
  • Time: Wednesday, November 14th at 6:00PM
  • Location: Communicore Building, room C1-4
  • Description: Time for our third GBM! Come pick up your shirts or place an order for one after we discuss upcoming events and listen to our wonderful speaker, Dr. Ferris of the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering. Dr. Ferris' research focuses on the biomechanics and neural control of human locomotion. Most of his research focuses on human-machine interactions, mechanically and electrically (picture Ironman). Specifically he studies human walking and running using mobile brain imaging, robotic lower limb exoskeletons, and bionic lower limb prostheses. The goal is to identify principles of how humans control their movements, how humans and machines interact, and develop better devices and controllers for machines assisting human locomotion. Come out to learn more or visit the Human Neuromechanics Lab website. This is also the final opportunity to order a shirt.

Banquet & Fourth GBM
