The Centre for BioSystems Science and Engineering (BSSE) at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India has brought together biologists, engineering, and those who are trained as bioengineers while also extending its reach to medical doctors, agricultural scientists, and biomedical industries to train the next generation of leaders in the field. BSSE currently hosts three permanent faculty, twelve associate faculty, one INSPIRE fellow and forty-two PhD students. Our faculty have expertise in a range of disciplines and conduct groundbreaking research providing students with a myriad of opportunities.

The BSSE Research Symposium is an annual event with a goal to increase collaboration and allow the exchange of new ideas between students, researchers, industry partners and clinical practitioners. The 7th BSSE Annual Research Symposium will be a two-day virtual event on the 19th and 20th of February, 2021. The two-day symposium will aim to have engaging scientific discussions with themed sessions like biomaterial-cellular interfaces, systems biology, tissue engineering, biomedical systems among others to highlight the multifaceted nature of interdisciplinary research performed in BSSE in an intuitive and interactive virtual environment. We will end the symposium with an exciting and unique panel discussion on "Shifting goalposts: Research in a post-COVID-19 world". We anticipate an excellent and diverse program of events and opportunities to connect with fellow peers and continuing the legacy of BSSE symposia, even while in an online format. Please share this announcement with colleagues and students who may be interested.

We look forward to meeting you all!
