Doctoral student at the Department of Biomedical Technology FBMI Veronika Ráfl Huttová received an award from the German Society for Biomedical Engineering (DGBMT). With a paper on Sensitivity analysis of a computer model of neonatal oxygen transport, she took 6th place among 10 awarded participants in the student section of the 54th Annual Conference of the German Society for Biomedical Engineering (BMT 2020), organized jointly by DGBMT and the University of Leipzig.
The BMT conference is a German, Austrian, and Switzerland area-wide conference focused on biomedical engineering and medical technology. This year, the conference was held online due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The work of Veronika Ráfl Huttová, supervised by Martin Rožánek, PhD, an Associate Professor at the Department of Biomedical Technology, emerged from long-term cooperation with Professor Knut Möller from the Hochschule Furtwangen in Baden-Württemberg. The prestige of the award is emphasized by the fact that our doctoral student was the only awarded student from a university outside Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, where biomedical engineering is a particularly well-established field.
