Welcome to the Cambridge Centre of the Biomedical Engineering Association (BmEA)

The Cambridge Centre was created in September 2015 to establish the first regional presence of the Biomedical Engineering Association (BmEA). This is following the same model as the Centres for the Automobile or Railway divisions.

The aim of the Centre is to provide relevant events to the biomedical engineering community in the greater Cambridge area.

This web site is gradually populated with up to date information. Please visit it again soon and tell your friends and colleagues about it.

Our 2016 event programme had four talks.  These were from Dr Thomas Stone of Addenbrooke's Hospital (slides here), Billy Boyle of Owlstone Medical, Tom Pinto from TWI Ltd (slides here) and David Holmes from Sphere Fluidics (hoping to get the slides to share, please visit again soon).

Our first event in 2017 took place on 21 March looking at the work of the Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge in the medical field culminating into their Healthcare Design Toolkit.

We regret that we had to cancel our June event. Cambridge Medical Robotics are keen to talk to our local members but are working towards an important milestone and don't have the bandwidth to do a talk this month. We are hoping to be able to run this later in the year.

We are working towards two or three events from September. The first one is now scheduled for Tuesday 26 September on Dry Powder Inhalers, the link below this section will enable you to book your place. Please visit again soon for further details.

For any enquiries or if you would like to be become active in the centre or if you would like to propose a talk or visit for the 2017 event programme, please write to BmEA_Cambridge@imechenearyou.org.

IMechE members who have selected Biomedical Engineering on their profile and live within our "catchment" (roughly East Anglia) will be notified of our events by email. Please take a moment to make sure your profile is up to date. Others are invited to follow us on social media (links on the right) where we also post our events and news.

Best regards,
Sylvain
