Biomedical Research in Italy: From wearable sensorts to tissue engineering, Italian biomedical engineers continue a long-established legacy of scientific inquiry.

From the Colosseum to the Roman aqueducts, Italy has historically been admired, envied, and imitated for its feats in advanced engineering. Beginning with Leonardo da Vinci?s military tanks and extending through today in such diverse arenas as high-performance automobiles and technical textiles, Italy has remained at the forefront of cutting-edge engineering.

And in the world of biomedical engineering, Italy continues the legacy established by da Vinci in 1489 when he began his pioneering investigations of human physiology. So, it is perhaps unsurprising that Milan should be the setting for the 37th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, which will be held 25?29 August at the Milan Conference Center.
