The Day of BioMedical Research 2018

Since 1996 the Department for BioMedical Research (DBMR) has held a "Day of BioMedical Research". This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, November 7.

The DBMR provides the best possible conditions to the researchers of the Inselspital and of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Bern. The annual “Day of BioMedical Research” has established itself as a forum for researchers to present their work in a poster session and to get insights into the research projects of their colleagues.

The event is open to the public, and will give an insight into the clinical research activities at the University of Bern. The "Day of BioMedical Research" is also an excellent platform for making new contacts and exchanging ideas.
