COMSOL is announcing COMSOL Day: Biomedical Technologies to be held online, twice, on June 2 and June 9. On both days, the event will focus on simulation applications in medical technology, life sciences, and medical device design. In a series of technical presentations, attendees will see how COMSOL Multiphysics is being used to design biomedical devices and understand the underlying physical phenomena of these devices. Keynote speakers from L’Institut Jean Lamour (IJL), Abbott, and the University of Maryland School of Medicine will discuss the use of multiphysics simulation for device design, applications in neurostimulation, and the development of thermal therapy for brain cancer, respectively. At the June 2 event, there will also be a panel discussion on material data and its importance to biomedical simulation applications.
In addition, there will be seven COMSOL presentations at each event:
Trends in Biomedical Technologies
Blood Pump Validation
Electromagnetics Applications Within Biomedical Technologies
Ultrasound and Hearing Aids in Biomedical Technologies
Biochemical Sensors and Tests
Bioheating of Tissue
Microfluidics and Separation in Biomedical Technologies
Modeling and simulation (M&S) have been used for biotech applications for decades and are continuing to reach more ground within the industry as they further advance biomedical technologies, such as smart devices that are able to monitor various aspects of a user’s health. In fact, M&S has been recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a tool that plays a “critical role” in the development of public health applications, and simulation has even been proposed as a way to run in silico clinical trials.
“Simulation is growing within the biomedical field. A lot of progress has been made and there are countless success stories,” says Mao Mao, technical account manager for biomedical applications at COMSOL. “Since the FDA is supportive of its use, modeling and simulation are going to be an integral part of how medical technologies are developed in the future.”

The COMSOL Day: Biomedical Technologies event dates and start times are as follows:
June 2 at 10 a.m. CEST (France)
June 9 at 11 a.m. EDT (USA)
The events are open to all, and attendance is free of charge.
Participation from any region at any of the events is welcomed. All presentations are in English.
COMSOL Days are popular online events applicable to people who work in industries and areas where COMSOL Multiphysics® can benefit their modeling and simulation projects. All COMSOL Days cover a wide range of subjects, including how to turn COMSOL models into specialized simulation apps for engineers who do not have a background in modeling.
The events feature 1-day programs with keynote presentations, technical sessions, panel discussions, and more. COMSOL Days will continue throughout 2022 with multiple events held each month.
