Swiss Society of Biomaterials

In 2005, the Medical Faculty established the research and education focus, Clinical Morphology and Biomedical Engineering (CMBE). With the generous endowment from Thomas Straumann, the Chair of Materials Science in Medicine has been established within CMBE. The purpose is to make biomaterials science a major new growth area for research and technology development in Basel. The BMC is attracting third-party funds from public, NGO and private sources to create a versatile, innovative organization, working at interdisciplinary boundaries and intimately linked to the needs of the University Clinics.
