BMERC Open House draws in undergraduate crowd

The recently held BMERC open house featured posters from labs across the Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering departments. The event successfully allowed graduate students and faculty members to engage undergraduate students in conversations about the many research projects going on at BMERC. Many undergraduate students were surprised at the wide variety of labs and their projects at Boston University and expressed interest in pursuing graduate degrees.
