International biomedical engineering experts at BMT 2012 in Jena

18.07.2012
Biosignal processing, patient monitoring and implants – these are the main topics at this year’s Biomedical Engineering Conference (BMT) that will be held from September 16 to September 19 in Jena, Germany.

International experts (e.g. from the USA, Israel, New Zealand, China or Russia) will be presenting recent and future research projects related to all areas of biomedical engineering. The Thuringian Minister of Economic, Work and Technology Affairs, Matthias Machnig, will be speaker of the social event taking place on September 18.

Further keynote speakers will be Prof. Dr. med. Hans-Reiner Figulla, Jena University Hospital, Prof. Dr. Jari Hyttinen, Tampere University of Technology and BioMEdiTech, Finland, Dr. Michael Kempe, Carl Zeiss AG Corporate Research & Technology, Jena, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Roland Sauerbrey , Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft Deutscher Forschungszentren, Prof. Dr. Phyllis K. Stein, Washington University School of Medicine, USA and Prof. Dr. Zang-Hee Cho, Gachon University of Medicine and Science, Republic of Korea.

Organizers of the BMT 2012 are the German Society for Biomedical Engineering within VDE (VDE|DGBMT), Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Ilmenau University of Technology as well as Fachhochschule Jena which are supported by medways – the branch association for medical technology. The conference, which is held in both German and English, aims at physicians, engineers and scientists and is linked to a trade show.

Moreover, interested people may also attend the VDE MedTech Tutorial on September 18, where experts of VDE will provide information about standardization in the area of medical technology, certification services relating to medical-technical appliances and about management systems for medical practices and hospitals. Further events in the course of the conference are the BMBF session “Mensch-Technik-Interaktion in der Gesundheitsversorgung” (human-technology-interaction in health care matters) and the EU session “Horizon 2020” regarding the future promotion of medical technology within the EU. Both sessions are on September 17, 2012.

On September 16, there is the “Young Forum BMT” which addresses students, graduate students and young professionals. Main aspects of this forum are a visit to the Institute of Photonic Technology in Jena, presentations regarding the topic of biomedical engineering as well as a workshop on presentation skills and the design of poster contributions. A panel discussion gives graduates of biomedical engineering sciences the opportunity to report on their respective career entries in industry and science. Furthermore, young scientists will be decorated with the Klee prize, a prize for patient safety and at the student competition.

For participation at the BMT 2012 at a reduced price please apply until July 22. For the current conference program and further information visit www.bmt2012.de.

Im Focus: Production of an AIDS vaccine in algae

Today, plants and microorganisms are heavily used for the production of medicinal products. The production of biopharmaceuticals in plants, also referred to as “Molecular Pharming”, represents a continuously growing field of plant biotechnology. Preferred host organisms include yeast and crop plants, such as maize and potato – plants with high demands. With the help of a special algal strain, the research team of Prof. Ralph Bock at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam strives to develop a more efficient and resource-saving system for the production of medicines and vaccines. They tested its practicality by synthesizing a component of a potential AIDS vaccine.

The use of plants and microorganisms to produce pharmaceuticals is nothing new. In 1982, bacteria were genetically modified to produce human insulin, a drug...

Im Focus: The most accurate optical single-ion clock worldwide

Atomic clock experts from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) are the first research group in the world to have built an optical single-ion clock which attains an accuracy which had only been predicted theoretically so far. Their optical ytterbium clock achieved a relative systematic measurement uncertainty of 3 E-18. The results have been published in the current issue of the scientific journal "Physical Review Letters".

Im Focus: Goodbye ground control: autonomous nanosatellites

The University of Würzburg has two new space projects in the pipeline which are concerned with the observation of planets and autonomous fault correction aboard satellites. The German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy funds the projects with around 1.6 million euros.

Im Focus: Flow phenomena on solid surfaces: Physicists highlight key role played by boundary layer velocity

Physicists from Saarland University and the ESPCI in Paris have shown how liquids on solid surfaces can be made to slide over the surface a bit like a bobsleigh on ice. The key is to apply a coating at the boundary between the liquid and the surface that induces the liquid to slip. This results in an increase in the average flow velocity of the liquid and its throughput. This was demonstrated by studying the behaviour of droplets on surfaces with different coatings as they evolved into the equilibrium state. The results could prove useful in optimizing industrial processes, such as the extrusion of plastics.

The study has been published in the respected academic journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America).
