The Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences

Advances in medical technology regularly make the headlines in the media. Where are we really at today in terms of research? What are the applications for patients? And in the longer term, what ethical issues are emerging at the frontier between care and the improvement of human capacities?

The Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW) invites you for an update on the subject at this new "TecToday" conference aimed at the general public. Neural implants, neuroprosthetics, gene therapies: our experts from the best research laboratories in French-speaking Switzerland and healthcare providers in contact with patients will share with you their most up-to-date knowledge in the field. The round table will provide an opportunity to put these technological advances into perspective.
