Our Purpose:

The Institute of Biological Engineering (IBE) is a professional organization which encourages inquiry and interest in biological engineering. A platform for interactions among academia, industry, and government are essential for progress, and the IBE Intermountain Regional Conference seeks to provide that platform.


The IBE Regional Conference provides the opportunity for students to present innovative and relevant research to industries, government agencies, and fellow researchers.

Get involved!

Become part of collaboration that helps shape the trajectory of biology-inspired engineering. Develop your professional skills by attending workshops and engaging in research presentations. Present your own research to gain exposure, establish recognition, and win certified cash awards. Network with industries looking for future professionals and research projects, bridging the gap between industry and academia. Utah State University’s regional IBE conference will bring together ideas from biomedical, bioenvironmental, and bioprocess engineering to serve the interests and values of the intermountain west.
