he Organizing Committee of the Mi-Bio Summit on Flexible and Stretchable Bioelectronics invites you to join us on the campus of Purdue University in beautiful West Lafayette, Indiana from Monday, July 29-Wednesday, July 31. The Mi-Bio Summit will bring together world experts in the emerging field of intrinsically-stretchable bioelectronics in order to bridge the discipline from the design of materials through clinical application. This Summit will provide a unique opportunity to interact with a wide range of thought leaders from academia, industry, government, and clinical arenas in an intimate setting. In addition to thirteen confirmed plenary and invited speakers, there will be panel discussions with significant question input from the audience, providing in-depth discussion led by editors from some of the top journals in the field. A poster session will be held on Tuesday afternoon, where you can present your newest results to the assembled group. We look forward to having you join us at the inaugural Mi-Bio Summit on Flexible and Stretchable Bioelectronics.
