MSB Symposium: BioEngineering meets Oncology

It is the mission of the Munich School of BioEngineering (MSB) to foster cooperation between researchers from different TUM departments working in bioengineering, medicine, medical physics, medical informatics, and other related fields.
In this spirit, we are inviting you to join us on 2 April 2020 for the first MSB symposium around the topic "BioEngineering meets Oncology" and to use the opportunity to meet colleagues, to learn from each other, and to develop ideas for cooperation.
The program will include a series of talks, a poster session and plenty of time for discussions.
