The Department of Biomedical Engineering (DBE) bridges the gap between natural science and medicine in order to improve procedures and technologies for medical treatment. Our goal is to provide tools for patient specific research and science based treatment. The DBE is a joint venture of the University of Basel, the University Hospital Basel and the University Children’s Hospital Basel and is associated with researchers of the University Center for Dental Medicine Basel. The department has currently almost 130 members working in four focal areas. A Master of Science program and a PhD program aim to contribute to an enriching environment in the field of biomedical engineering. Moreover, the department is place of origin for a number of award winning medtech spin-offs
