The industry, medical doctors, and engineers meet for the Biomedical Engineering Day at the Inselspital in Bern with great success

The Biomedical Engineering Day 2010 took place on Friday June 4, 2010 in the Auditorium Rossi at the University Hospital (Inselspital) in Bern.

Eleven companies from Germany and Switzerland presented themselves to an audience of approximately 230 participants. In addition, the ARTORG research groups impressed the event's visitors with stunning demonstrations from the fields of artificial hearing aids, computer-aided surgery, diabetes technology, and ophthalmic technology.

One highlight of this year's event was the presentation of Prof. Dr. med. Thierry Carrel from the University Hospital Bern "Everything from plastic ! - polymers in cardiovascular surgery". In this stimulating lecture he gave a comprehensive overview of the great challenges for biomedical engineering in cardiovascular surgery.

Another highlight of the Biomedical Engineering Day was the ceremony for the Medical Cluster Awards 2010. Andreas Wüthrich was granted the award for the best master thesis "Osseointegration of Model Implants with Anti-bacterial Surfaces" and Dr. Flurin Pfiffner for the best Ph.D. thesis "Optimizing the Benefit of Bone Anchored Hearing Aids". Dr. Rubino Mordasini, President of the Medical Cluster, handed the awards over to the happy winners.

The Co-Me Poster Award went to V. Oliva, B. Bell, S. Stankowsky, M. Caversaccio, C. Stieger, S. Weber in recognition of the outstanding poster presentation "Advanced Surgical Instrumentation for ORL and CMF Applications".

Please note the date for next year's Biomedical Engineering Day. It will take place on May 13, 2011.
