SCE academic coordinator for BIOART: Dr. Tom Trigano

Artificial implants aim to replace missing or defective biological structures in the human body. Their development has become a growing interest, due to the global population aging and to their use for regenerative medicine in numerous zones of conflicts around the world. The design of artificial implants is a complex matter, and involves a tight collaboration between electrical, chemical and mechanical engineers.

BIOART is an Erasmus Capacity project, whose main objective is to develop a multidisciplinary curriculum in Bioengineering, with emphasis on smart artificial implants. This project involves European partners with known expertise in the field of bioengineering, regenerative medicine and biomedical signal processing. The Israeli team involved in this project includes SCE, Bar Ilan University, HIT and IUCC.

The new developed curriculum will provide graduates the required competences for their employability in the field of artificial implants, and will increase the research collaboration between the involved academic partners.
