BME@LiU - a conference day in Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering, or MedTech, lies at the intersection of many of LiU's strength and strategic areas. It involves development of state-of-the-art technologies such as biosensors, medical imaging, AI, eHealth, visualization, with many applications in Life Sciences, e.g. circulatory and metabolic diseases, inflammation, neurological diseases and cancer.

BME@LiU is a day filled with activities related to the field of biomedical engineering (BME). From invited and contributed talks, to posters, exhibitions, and mingling. These activities reach out to all researchers, companies, organisations, students and clinicians who support, contribute to, or utilise BME technologies.

Welcome to the fifth annual Biomedical Engineering conference!
