The ARTORG is the University of Bern’s transdisciplinary Center of Excellence for medical technology research. Its mission is to tackle unmet clinical needs and anticipate future challenges in diagnosis, monitoring and treatment to create viable healthcare technology solutions with imagination, agility, and purpose. In its unique constellation as an engineering department within a medical faculty, the ARTORG Center has been delivering a decade of ambitious biomedical engineering research, teaching and development across a wide variety of clinical areas.
The ARTORG is committed to educating highly qualified experts in biomedical engineering. Its MSc programs in Biomedical Engineering (BME) and AI in Medicine (AIM) foster proximity to clinical practice. Seamless integration of course teaching with projects in the ARTORG’s research groups exposes students to the entire pathway of biomedical engineering applications: from discovery to research to clinical translation. Master’s and PhD students can apply skills and academic experiences into MedTech innovation at the forefront of healthcare.
ARTORG aspires to meet an ambitious translation strategy that delivers patient benefit within an average 10-year technology development horizon. Collaborations with regional, Swiss National, and international companies from industry accelerate the transfer of prototype work to commercial partners to create better diagnosis, monitoring and treatment tools for patients and doctors.
