Symposium biomedical engineering and implant development

The rapid advances being made by biomedical engineering – an interdisciplinary field of science that continues to evolve – are stimulating the demand from patients and their physicians for permanent as well as adsorbable, customized implants. (Language: German)

22 May 2019 | Hall 19/20 | Room Sydney 2

Scientists from the Lower Saxony Center for Biomedical Engineering, Implant Research and Development (NIFE) will be presenting the latest projects involving the development and optimization of a wide range of implant types at this scientific symposium. In addition, well-known speakers will reveal the latest methods and findings from areas extending beyond biomedical engineering. Afterwards, we will show you the different scientific areas at NIFE during a guided tour of the facility.

You will have the opportunity to enter an open-air room used for acoustic measurement technology as well as for ear, nose and throat medical procedures and to become acquainted with state-of-the-art laser platforms for medical imaging applications.


Background info

A new facility has been created in Hannover, Germany, to help turn research findings into marketable products more quickly and bundle all the various scientific disciplines: the Lower Saxony Center for Biomedical Engineering, Implant Research and Development ( NIFE ).

Employees from Hannover Medical School, the Leibniz University of Hannover in cooperation with the Hannover Laser Center and the Hannover University of Veterinary Medicine Foundation, with all of their different scientific competences (engineering, natural and life sciences, veterinary, human and dental medicine), are developing innovative approaches for cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, auditory-neuronal and dental surgery.

And there are a number of different, closely interlinked topic areas that have the potential to help solve these problems: tissue replacement research, biohybrids, biocompatibility, biodegradation, biofunctionalization and implant-associated infections. These areas are complemented by the cross-disciplinary functions of biomaterial development and testing, imaging techniques, laser medicine, sensor technology and electronics.
