The Professor Dimitrios Morikis Memorial Symposium


The Professor Dimitrios Morikis Memorial Symposium

The Professor Dimitrios Morikis Memorial Symposium is a tribute to the work and accomplishments of Professor Dimitrios Morikis. Professor Morikis was a founding faculty member of the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, Riverside and his scientific energy was vital in shaping the program into what it is today.  His research, however, extended well beyond our campus and has had an international impact. His passing on May 27, 2019 has left us with a tremendous void however, we are grateful for being among those whose lives he has touched.

At this memorial symposium, we gather colleagues from all across the world who have been inspired by Dimitri. On Monday, February 10, 2020 let us celebrate this remarkable person in scientific fellowship in his honor. Please join us in this celebration of his life.
