The ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research creates innovative healthcare technology by bringing together the biomedical engineering and clinical departments of the University of Bern. Technical and clinical experts jointly lead our multidisciplinary research groups that address unmet needs of patients, doctors and nurses.
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 Bernese medical hub, develop our projects with leading international research institutions, and collaborate with regional, national and international companies from industry to accelerate the translation of our pilot and prototype work to commercial solutions.
Great interest in the ARTORG workshop
50 men and women visited the ARTORG workshop yesterday afternoon to get a first-hand impression of the production process. In four visitor slots they experienced the workshop's new computer numerical control (CNC) milling and turning machines in operation. The workshop Mechanical Design and Production is open to all researchers from the Bern Medical Hub who wish to implement medical technology projects and who require advice in conception and development as well as know-how in prototyping and production.
