NOV . 03 2011

Peking University, Oct.28, 2011: Global Development of Biomedical Engineering of the 21st Century is held in No.8 Conference Room of Yingjie Exchange Center of Peking University (PKU). Reports regarding such frontier fields of research as biomedical imaging, health information collection system based on cardiovascular portable detector and telemedicine system were bade in the forum.


Many renowned specialists in biomedical engineering area—from both overseas and domestic universities and research institutions—participated in the forum. 80 PKU students also were present. Three scholars delivered their keynote speeches in the forum.


Professor Zhang Yuanting, Director of the key laboratory of health informatics of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Dean of Biomedical Engineering of Chinese University of Hong Kong, gave his speech, titled Cardiovascular Health Informatics: MINDS for Wearable Devices . He explained the importance of real time monitoring in Cardiovascular disease and thus led to the advantages of wearable devices—miniaturized, intelligent, network, digitalized and standardized. MINDS represents the trend of integrating emerging technologies to promote people’s health.
