New website brings biomedical engineering professionals together

Share

ASME logoThe American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has launched a new website that is designed to bring the biomedical engineering community together and provide access to research and development advances.

The Alliance of Advanced Biomedical Engineering (AABME) gathers technical articles, reports and other content about subjects including cell therapy, thermal medicine, medical devices, 3D printing and more and makes them accessible on the website, which can be found at aabme.org.

It is also meant to act as a comprehensive resource for biomedical engineers because it features technical journals like ASME publications, conferences and events and it also features the society’s codes and standards in the biomedical and bioengineering fields. The society also plans to create more collaborative and interactive tools in the future.

“The Alliance of Advanced Biomedical Engineering represents ASME’s effort to bring together diverse sectors in the broad cross-disciplinary field of biomedical engineering to bridge the gap between basic research and applied research for the next generation of potentially life-saving medical technologies,” said Jeff Patterson, chief operating officer of ASME. “The need for collaboration in this arena is required to advance the field, and ASME is championing the efforts to make this a reality.”

Website visitors have the opportunity to connect with like-minded technical professionals who are looking for networking opportunities in the biomedical engineering field. The AABME also offers other benefits when registering, including a subscription to a newsletter with biomedical engineering data, analysis, technology and business insights. Registration also enables access to a topic search in ASME’s digital collection, with free access to 10 articles, journal papers or conference papers or discounted access to select ASME biomedical events and conferences.
