Conference Overview

17 Years StrongThe University of Minnesota's Earl E. Bakken Medical Devices Center (part of the Institute for Engineering in Medicine), the College of Science and Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering presents the 21st Annual Design of Medical Devices Conference, April 11-14, 2022. The world's largest medical device conference will be held at the Graduate hotel and McNamara Alumni Center, Minneapolis, MN.

"The DMD conference is the best conference to attend, if you want to learn about the cutting edge research in the medical field, and to talk in a comfortable environment with researchers, Key Opinion Leaders and peers. I have personally attended and spoken at many conferences. The DMD conference's content quality is hands-down the best of all the conferences. I would be remiss if I didn't also mention the University and conference staff make everyone feel welcomed and take the time to make sure everyone finds what they are looking for. "
