In an era where technology is expanding at a rapid rate and the needs for medical application of these technologies has never been greater, the intersection between engineering, medicine and biology is a critical place to be.
The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society is well-positioned to serve as a central gathering point for both of these major disciplines. The IEEE – EMBS has a broad membership with representation from a variety of engineering and medicine disciplines. Since 1953, it has been an organization that fosters communication between engineering and biology and can help improve the health of the world’s population by facilitating the application of new technologies into medical care as they arise. One main limitation in developing new technologies for medical care has been the lack of interaction between clinicians and engineers.
The IEEE – EMBS is an organization composed of engineers and clinicians that fosters interaction between the two groups facilitating collaborative research projects that ultimately will improve the pipeline where technology gets applied to medical care.
