July 2007

Message From George
Greetings from the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering.

With July upon us and campus a little quieter, it is anything but slowing down for the Weldon School.

Let me highlight a few items keeping everyone busy this summer:  faculty traveling to conferences to present their work, labs buzzing with activity from undergraduates and graduates doing research, and numerous awards for our faculty. We look forward to seeing everyone this fall, please stop by and let us show you what Weldon has to offer.

Enjoy the rest of the summer.
