2nd DBE Research Day

The Department of Biomedical Engineering is the youngest unit of the Medical Faculty, Basel, and was officially opened in August 2015. To strengthen its strong ties with medical practitioners of the University Hospital Basel and the University Children’s Hospital Basel, the venue of its 2nd Research Day was the “Zentrum für Lehre und Forschung” close to the hospitals.

The Head of the Department, Professor Philippe Cattin, underlined that the tour d’horizon of the Research Day showed how many promising collaborations between basic research and medical application are already underway or could be initiated in the future. The day was enriched by almost 60 posters, many exciting talks by doctoral students and a number of presentations by senior researchers who gave an overview on the research activities of their specific group or institution. Based on these impressions, the DBE is looking forward to the outcomes of all projects and the next Research Day in autumn 2017!
