The ARTORG Center creates innovative healthcare technology by bringing together the biomedical engineering and medicine departments of the University of Bern. To address unmet needs of patients, doctors and nurses, technical and clinical experts together lead our multidisciplinary research units.
Close to current challenges in preventive medicine, diagnostics, therapy and disease management, ARTORG contributes to improved clinical care through scientific discovery, deep learning technology, simulation of physiological processes and the development of novel medical devices and applications for surgery and rehabilitation. The Center fosters diversity and creative teamwork and offers study programs for Masters, postgraduates and clinicians at world-class level. We count on a strong network within the Bern medical hub, develop our projects with leading international research institutions, and collaborate with industry to accelerate the translation of our pilot and prototype work to commercial solutions.
Malavika Nambiar wins ESBiomech Poster Award
With her poster presentation “Biomechanical simulation platform for patient specific refractive interventions” Malavika Harikrishnan Nambiar, doctoral student at the Computational Bioengineering group, has won this year`s poster award of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB). Her PhD project aims at providing surgeons with a better treatment modality and developing patient-specific treatment plans that promise the best outcome for refractive surgery.
The ARTORG Center was represented with nine researchers and 16 projects at the ESBiomech Congress (11-14 July 2021), including two perspective talks by Philippe Zysset, Head of Musculoskeletal Biomechanics and Philippe Büchler, Head of Computational Bioengineering.
