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 is now scheduled for 21 March about medical work of the Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge. There will be a particular focus on the Healthcare Design Toolkit the Centre has developed. Details can be found below or in our event section.
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.
