Kidneys with a sense of smell and ‘real’ virtual operating rooms

 

Düsseldorf, 28 September 2005. How can the human sense of smell be used for medical purposes - this was one of the 70 issues the entrants of the first ‘life science design award: concepts’ competition were dealing with. Ten of these concepts received an award from the jury of five. Several “outstanding concepts” and the “partly enormous relevance for society” were praised by jury members such as Professor Rainer Seibel, head of the Mülheim Radiology Institute, and Melanie Ruprecht, ZEIT online editorial office.

 

Until the Medica 2005, the leading medical trade fair, the selected project entrants will further develop their concepts which they will present there in a special exhibition. The jury will announce the winner, who will receive a 20,000 Euro prize, at the Medica. The presentation of the prize will take place on the evening of the 16th November 2005 at the Düsseldorf Trade Fair.

 

This pdf-document will provide you with more information on the ten concepts nominated for the main prize.
