The Center for Biomedical Innovation hosted a Collaborative Research Seminar which showcased research conducted at the Imperial College London and at the University of Moratuwa on topics related to Injury Biomechanics with a particular focus on lower limb fracture injury mechanics. The seminar was held at the Department of Electrical Engineering Seminar room on the 26th of November, 2018.
The speakers of the day included, Professor (Col) Jon Clasper, Dr Spencer Barnes, and Dr Michael Bertaume from Imperial College London and Thiran Sellahewa, Achintha Iroshan, and Dinesh Kumara who are PhD students from the University of Moratuwa working under the NIHR funded PrOTeCT project, a collaborative project with Imperial College London.
On the second day of the technical sessions in the conference on healthcare in the 4th Industrial revolution, CEBI and University of Moratuwa members presented 3 more projects. The conference held from 24th-26th October provided a great opportunity to discuss current global technological transformations in healthcare.
