IEEE EMBS is sponsoring its 3rd conference on Microtechnologies in Medicine and Biology to foster interaction between biologists and medical researchers; chemists and physicists; and biomedical, fluid mechanical and microfabricationengineers. The Conference will promote a fundamental exchange of ideas, which is considered vital to the development of new research tools and technologies in the BioMEMSfield. Papers that demonstrate significant integration of technology and biology are particularly encouraged.
