BIOMEDICA 2016 –Make the health care field of tomorrow today
The 10th anniversary of the Biomedica Life Sciences Summit was successfully celebrated today with pitches, outstanding, international speakers, and fully booked matchmaking sessions. With around 70 large and small exhibitors as well as ‘spin offs’ and more than 700 international industry visitors, Biomedica represents the most significant event in the area of the life sciences in the Euregio.
The health and well-being of the patient, and future demands and possibilities were the main focus which were intensively and interactively discussed in the iSessions and breakout sessions.
The Biomedica Foundation again presented awards this year in order to stimulate the connection between innovative companies and to strengthen researchers in the medical sector in the Euregio. The Poster Awards for the Biotech/Pharma sectors went to: Franz Marzi, Institute of Applied Medical Engineering (AME), Aachen, for ‘Design and Development of a Durability Testing System for Tissue-Engineered Heart Valves’ and Dr. Malies Gijs, Maastricht University Medical Centre +, for ‘A New Opthalmic Drug Delivery Device as Alternative to Eye Drops.’ In the Medtech/Care sector, Ms. Medisa Jabbari, FH-Aachen received an award for ‘Biomedical simulation of the surgical reconstruction of the female pelvic floor dysfunctions using prosthetic mesh implants’ and Mrs. Sol Cabrera, Eindhoven University of Technology, received an award for ‘The Future of Pediatric Congenital Heart Disease Treatment: Regenerative Vascular Support Grafts.’ Two participants in the ‘Innovation Market,’ sponsored this year by DSM, were also honored with the Innovation Award: Michael Rose, Qithera GmbH, Düsseldorf, and Job Beckers, PlasmaPendix, a spin-off of the Eindhoven University of Technology.
