BME@LiU 2022

Illustration with words that together build the word

BME@LiU 2022 is a conference day filled with activities to highlight the research conducted at LiU in the field of biomedical engineering. The ambition is to make BME@LiU 2022 a meeting place for all who are active in the field, in order to create collaboration and discussion. 

Biomedical Engineering, or MedTech, lies at the intersection of many of LiUs 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): invited and contributed talks, posters, exhibitions, mingling arenas, and a dinner. These activities reach out to all researchers, companies and organizations who support, contribute to, or utilize BME technologies.

Keynote speakers

The conference will be in English.



BME@LiU 2022 will offer several levels of engagement on the topic of Biomedical Engineering and Translational Research.

  • Research Presentations:  We will provide several formats for all BME researchers and clinical collaborators to share their unique approaches (or unmet clinical needs) to addressing the most current and salient medical challenges. 

 - Individual Research presentations 

- Collaborative Presentations 

- Poster Presentations 

  • A digital arena: We will provide an online forum open throughout the day for participants to visit “virtual booths” (ePosters, Videos, pre-recorded presentations, etc.) highlighting:

  LiU’s Research Centers and Core Facilities

  Companies (from and outside of LiUthat are engaged in translating and commercializing new technologies in health care

  • Key Note Speakers: Leaders in the field of Biomedical Engineering and Clinical Research outside of LiU will be invited to offer their accumulated perspectives of the current advancement and future directions of MedTech in both morning and afternoon sessions.


For visitors - both on site and digitally
