Toronto Biomedical Engineering Conference
The Toronto Biomedical Engineering Conference (ToBE) is an annual research conference aimed at showcasing cutting-edge biomedical engineering research and world-class talks from top institutions around the world.
Since 1985, the Institute of Biomaterials & Biomedical Engineering Annual Research Conference, now known as Toronto Biomedical Engineering Conference (ToBE) has showcased the work of BME’s graduate students and faculty members through oral and poster presentations. It is the longest-running student-organized conference at the University of Toronto.
It is an opportunity for our 300+ students and 100+ faculty to learn from distinguished scientists in the bioengineering field and discuss the state of the art in academia and industry on an international stage. The event has attracted many high profile speakers in the past, and is open to the broader BME community.
