Innovations in Medicine Conference

Semmelweis University, a major medical university in Central Europe will organize a 3-day international scientific conference focusing on innovations in medicine, on 9–11 October, 2014, in Budapest.

The aim of the conference is to showcase the latest results of personalized medicine, technology transfer & bionics and interventional neurology.

On the third day of the conference (11 October), a public event will also take place. The aim of the public event is to disseminate the newest scientific results in an easily perceivable way. Please come and join us: KliniKaland.

The chairman of the conference is Professor Ágoston Szél, rector of Semmelweis University. The head of the scientific committee is Professor Mária Judit Molnár, vice-rector of Semmelweis University.
