About the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation Seminar Series
Through the generous support of the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation, the Department of Biomedical Engineering facilitates a seminar series every Friday of the academic year, where eminent researchers and scientists from universities, industries, clinics, and other venues are invited to visit the department and the university. During the visit, we invite you to provide a research seminar followed by more intimate meetings with faculty and students and a tour of our academic and research facilities, and learn about our program.The lectures are a great place for the community, students, and faculty and staff to meet and network with leading experts in the industry.
With the current pandemic situation and people still hesitant to travel and with other travel restrictions/guidelines that your university may impose, we can accommodate a virtual visit (if that is preferred).
Please feel free to make your own flight reservations as per your schedule and convenience. Keep in mind that your lecture is first thing Friday morning. Therefore, you must arrive Thursday evening. If you prefer we arrange for your flight reservations, let us know immediately. If making your own travel arrangements, please note that only economy class is reimbursed by the university. Once booked, please send your itinerary and receipt as soon as you book the flight.
Hotel (for in-person seminars)
FIU will make all necessary lodging arrangements. Typically our lecturers stay for 2 nights so we make the hotel reservations for Thursday and Friday.
Transportation to FIU and Hotel
Our faculty will work with you for transportation, otherwise, you can make Uber/taxi arrangements for your commute.
For the address field, please enter your home address since that is the only address the university allows us to use to send any reimbursement. For travel and lodging questions, please contact Mariam Barrueco.
