President's Message:
Record number of abstracts submitted for 2019 BMES Annual Meeting

By Dawn Elliott
BMES President

Nearly 4,000 abstracts were submitted for the 2019 BMES Annual Meeting, including nearly 900 undergraduate submissions this month. 

We will have 19 tracks during the four-day meeting (Oct. 16-19). This record number of abstracts ensures that the 2019 meeting will include the most diverse and cutting-edge scientific program ever at a BMES event. 

With just over eight weeks to go before BMES 2019, this a great time to start strategizing how you plan your days in Philadelphia. 

Attending talks completely outside of your area of study is not only a great way to learn about fascinating research, it can impact the way you approach your work in ways you can't even imagine. The meeting is also a great way to network and make new connections within your expertise and beyond. 

A conversation at BMES meeting can lead to future collaborations, career support, and more. I encourage you to attend this year's meeting in Philadelphia. And make sure you register by September 4 to receive the early-bird discounts.

A webinar: How to Make the Most of your Time at the 2019 BMES Annual Meeting, will be held Sept. 17 at 2 pm. Go to for more information.
