Medical technology at DECHEMA is a topic that has received a welcome boost by the merger with fms, the society for measurement, sensor and medical technology, Dresden. The main activities are the traditional Sensor Symposium in Dresden, and commitment to research promotion in the framework of the Industrial Collective Research (German: IGF) programme.
The German Platform on NanoBioMedicine is located at the interface of nanotechnology, biotechnology, the engineering sciences, and medical technology. The platform provides an interdisciplinary forum for stakeholders from all application areas of nanobiomedicine in diagnostics, therapy, and regenerative medicine.
Moreover, a number of corporate members of DECHEMA and of the Association of German Biotechnology Companies (VBU) are active in different fields of medical technology.
