For the first time, the Oregon Bioengineering Symposium will feature a keynote address by a prominent researcher external to the host institutions. For the fifth-annual symposium, held at the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact at the University of Oregon, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Jason Burdick, who is Bowman Endowed Professor of the BioFrontiers Institute and Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder as the 2023 keynote speaker.

Burdick's Biomaterials and Biofabrication Laboratory designs new biomaterials that can be processed through fabrication methodologies to meet the needs of medicine, ranging from translational therapeutics to tissue models. He currently has more than 310 peer-reviewed publications and is on the editorial boards of Journal of Biomedical Materials Research A, Biofabrication, Advanced Healthcare Materials, and International Journal of Bioprinting. He has been recognized through numerous awards such as a Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering, an American Heart Association Established Investigator Award, the Clemson Award for Basic Science through the Society for Biomaterials, and the Acta Biomaterialia Silver Medal Award. Burdick has been elected as a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, to the International College of Fellows of Biomaterials Science and Engineering, as a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, and as an International Fellow of the Canadian National Academy of Engineering.
