AABME CONNECT: Where Biomedicine and Engineering Come Together

  • Hyatt Regency Minneapolis 1300 Nicollet Mall Minneapolis, MN, 55403 United States (map)

ARMI | BioFabUSA will sponsor the Alliance of Advanced BioMedical Engineering's CONNECT event.

AABME CONNECT is a one-day workshop designed to bring together key stakeholders in the bioengineering community—from biologists to engineers and everyone in between—so they can network, highlight innovations, and discuss how to bridge the gap between basic and applied research.

The focus of the inaugural event, scheduled Monday, May 14, 2018, in Minneapolis, is “Modeling and Simulation: Transforming the Future of Healthcare,” an important theme that cuts across all disciplines within bioengineering and implementation of which has been proven to accelerate the product design process and decrease time to market of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and other bio-related products. The FDA is now encouraging the use of modeling and simulation in submissions for medical device approvals. The program will feature experts who overcame technical challenges in the biomedical field by leveraging modeling and simulation, and includes representatives from the FDA and other agencies that play a critical role in the healthcare arena. The speakers will share their past experiences and all participants will discuss how we—the bioengineering community—approach future-facing technologies.

By attending AABME CONNECT, you will be able to:

  • Expand your network with other key stakeholders in the bioengineering community.

  • Embrace new technology and learn how you can benefit from the latest innovations.

  • Elevate your leadership skills and knowledge of standards application.

  • Explore the barriers that may inhibit standardization and learn how to reduce or eliminate them.

The Alliance of Advanced Biomedical Engineering (AABME) is an ASME initiative designed to stimulate biomedical innovation by bringing together and providing resources to the biomedical engineering community. For more information, visit
