Abstract

The medical field is showing unprecedented advances and health-related research is essential to produce first-hand knowledge of the extent and burden of health-related problems. The enhancement of global health and well-being are key features of bioengineering. This forum is focused on recent advances in biomedical research, especially on the interactions of systems and materials with living bodies and the development of fundamental technologies for controlling these interactions, which will constitute groundbreaking medical tools in the future.Moreover, the forum is aimed to exchange information on medical and biological engineering in order to develop exchanges in human resources.
