BioMedEng19 Summary
Welcome Message

I am delighted to invite you to be part of BioMedEng19. 


The large number of BioMedEng science and technology themes on our website is reflective of the breadth and depth of our discipline and of the scope of attendees that we can expect: this twelfth meeting in the series follows on from last year’s successful conference at which we had over 500 delegates from 67 separate universities and 32 companies and other organisations.

This congress truly has become the annual jamboree for all of those who consider themselves Bioengineers, Biomedical Engineers and Medical Engineers and so I invite you to join us in presenting your work and participating in what is sure to be another stimulating and enjoyable meeting. See you in London in September.

Anthony Bull
