Synopsys at 2019 Frontiers in Medical Devices, Washington, March 2019

Date / Time: March 19-21, 2019

Location: College Park Marriott Hotel, University of Maryland, Washington, DC, USA

Synopsys will be the 2019 BMES/FDA Frontiers in Medical Devices event to talk about how Simpleware software is used for medical device design and biomedical engineering. We will also be providing a technology showcase seminar to demonstrate how to go from 3D image data to models for different applications.

1st International Symposium on Traumatic Brain Injury at the University of Texas Arlington (UTA) on April 11, 2019

The University of Texas at Arlington is pleased to host the 1st International Symposium on Traumatic Brain Injury – Mechanisms and Protections on April 11, 2019. The specific objectives of the symposium are to (i) share state-of-the-art research on TBI mechanism and protection, (ii) foster greater research collaboration across disciplines, sectors, initiatives and countries and promote interactions between the TBI research community with the veteran community, contact sports community and others for education and outreach, (iii) identify knowledge gap on TBI re

Postdoctoral vacancy (3 years) on patient-specific design and finite element modelling of 3D printed medical implants

3D printing or Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies carry the promise of revolutionizing the quality and efficiency of healthcare. However, the required technologies, even when available, are currently too fragmented to be integrated into routine, affordable and streamlined solutions that can benefit a large number of patients. The challenge thereby is to deliver 3D printing technologies that enable:
