About the Fischell Festival
Engineers play a crucial role in devising new technologies that enhance the capabilities of health care, improve our quality of life, and shape the future of human healthcare. Now in its seventh year, the Fischell Festival demonstrates how University of Maryland bioengineering faculty and students are joining forces with colleagues in the medical field to design the next generation of biomedical devices, drugs and vaccines, and advanced treatments of injuries and disease. Everyone is welcome–the Fest is open to the public and registration is complimentary.
Undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, faculty, research scientists, members of federal labs, and members of the biotech industry are invited to submit a research poster. Learn more »

Through a $31 million gift, Robert E. Fischell and his sons Tim, Scott and David established the Fischell Department of Bioengineering and the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices at the Clark School of Engineering.
"The greatest achievement that engineering can make is to improve the quality of life for millions of people. Our gift will help young engineers develop their ideas to improve healthcare for human beings throughout the world."
Robert E. Fischell, M.S. '53, Physics
