The Institute has published a special December issue on the Life Sciences Initiative. As always, the Institute is free! For instance, read “What it takes to be a Bioengineer.” There is also an interesting blog, “Five Challenges Facing the Life Sciences Field,” written by Bin He, the Chair of the recent IEEE Life Sciences Grand Challenges Conference.

Speaking of the Grand Challenges Conference, you can view presentations and photos from the Conference at our IEEE Life Sciences Portal. And, if you aren’t already doing so, we invite you to regularly visit the Portal for timely articles on developments in the fascinating interface of technology and the life sciences.
