Featured Webinars

BMES aims to provide valuable educational opportunities to the biomedical engineering community through various online learning and professional development offerings. The goal of these offerings is to promote lifelong education and career advancement courses, as well as to serve our mission of deepening the understanding of biomedical engineering and bioengineering worldwide.

In addition to finding valuable BMES content below and in our archives, we invite you to submit webinar abstracts on webinars you wish to see produced. There are two new tracks you can submit to, depending on the content you would like to share;

  • Education (a research presentation, panel, advertisement, mentor opportunity, breakout sessions, professional development, academic development, BMES related, etc.)
  • Industry (a research presentation, an overview of your company, a look into your life and how you got there, mentor opportunities, breakout sessions, professional development, etc.)
‚ÄčIf your webinar topic is selected, you will receive an email to discuss planning and production details. If you have questions about submitting a webinar, please reach out to ryan@bmes.org.

Micro3D Photography on a Budget      
Anyone who uses a microscope or does macro photography knows of the fundamental trade-off between depth-of-field, field-of-view, and magnification. Simply put, the more you zoom in, the less you can see at once. One approach to solve this problem is to use a motorized stage to physically scan across the object, and then use software to stack images in the Z dimension and tile images laterally.  Here, I show you how to build such a stack+stitch microphotography setup by combining off-the-shelf or recycled components, such as a 3D printer, old Blu-Ray players, and a USB camera. The result is an up-to-5-axis motorized rig that can take gigapixel micropanoramas and even 3D scan small objects like insects.
