The 14th Dortmund MST Conference on July 5 is demonstrating how micro- and nanotechnologies contribute to individualized methods of prevention, diagnostics, treatment, regeneration and rehabilitation in medicine and healthcare.
Embracing "Individualized Healthcare Solutions", the conference held on July 5, 2017 at the Lensing-Carrée Conference Center in the city center of Dortmund will present components, devices and methods of micro- and nano-engineering as well as digital technologies for treatment adapted to the individual needs of patients.
The conference starts with three keynote speeches in the morning of July 5: Dr. Tobias Gantner, Managing Director of Healthcare Futurists GmbH, reports on digital transformation in healthcare. Individualized solutions for implant technology will be presented by Professor Klaus-Peter Hoffmann from the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Technology.
Dr. Tobias Weimer, a lawyer specialized in medical device legislation, talks about off-label use of medical devices exemplified by endoprosthetics. The keynote speeches address a German-speaking audience.
The presentations in the afternoon provide a deeper insight into the technological basis of micro- and nanotechnology. In two parallel sessions in German and English, experts from companies and research institutes present technical innovations and trends that help advance individualized medicine and healthcare. With the English session, the MST Conference addresses an international audience for the first time in 2017.
The English session has an international line-up with experts from the Netherlands, Switzerland, France and Austria. The experts will highlight applications of microfluidics, sensor technology, optical and photonic technologies in modern medicine and show how methods such as electrospinning, packaging and plasmonics are used for innovative medical technology products and biomedical procedures.
The parallel German session demonstrates the role of microfluidics, optofluidics, miniaturized electronics or nanoporous and macroporous structures in individualized medicine. The session also broaches the issues of digital health engineering and active implants including their production using methods such as 3D printing. One speech provides an insight into the biohacking scene and the dangerous trend towards self-treatment.
The Dortmund MST Conference is a joint conference of the IVAM Microtechnology Network and the City of Dortmund Economic Development Agency. Since its premiere in 2004 the conference has become a popular communication platform for suppliers and users of micro- and nanotechnology from industry and science.
Participation in the conference and the subsequent guided city tour is free of charge. Registration ends on June 26, 2017.
This year’s MST Conference is conjoined with the international expert meeting Health Business Connect 2017, which takes place on July 6, 2017 at Dortmund Technology Park. During this event component manufacturers and medical device manufacturers from Germany, France and other countries will discuss possible cooperation and joint projects.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
