Students spend years doing the research and making posters for conferences. When the conferences are over, the posters often get rolled up and put in a pile never to be seen again. When I got to UCSD, there were some bioengineering posters up on the walls, but half of them were falling off and they were not given justice, said Feist.
As the president of the Bioengineering Graduate Students Group (BEGS), Feist led an effort to install poster displays in the new bioengineering building.
I wanted to make sure our research gets put on display. Visitors look at the posters all the time. Now that we have about 30 posters on the walls of our building, I can say with confidence that our research is reaching a broader audience, said Feist.
The bioengineering graduate students are offering naming opportunities for each of the poster holders. They have sold four so far and are looking to sell more.
Putting your name or your companys name on one of our poster display cases is a great way for bioengineering alumni from UCSD to give back to their home department, said Feist. All money raised from the sponsorship of poster holders is used to sponsor the events that their student group organizes and runs each year.
For local companies, getting your name on a poster display is a great way to make a permanent connection with bioengineers at UCSD, said Feist.
As the president of BEGS for the last three years, Feist has had the opportunity to interact with the faculty, alumni and other student organizations on campus.
