Engineering and Physical Science Interest Group
The Engineering and Physical Science Interest Group (EPSIG) promotes applications of engineering and the physical sciences within biomedical research. A main goal is to facilitate interactions among researchers trained in biomedicine and the physical sciences. Areas of interest encompass the physical principles underlying biological systems, tools used to study those systems, and bioengineering approaches to medical diagnostics, therapeutics and disease prevention. Activities of the EPSIG include a lecture series by extramural and intramural scientists, as well as sponsorship of symposia and poster sessions at which NIH postdoctoral fellows can present their own research. An additional aim is to educate postdoctoral scientists who have engineering and physical science backgrounds about the techniques, concepts, and scientific issues that will enable them to pursue biomedical careers. The group will have a pedagogical role in facilitating communication among biologists, mathematicians and physical scientists.
