If anyone knows how the research at the ICCAS got rolling, then Dr. Stefan Bohn. The likeable scientist was one of the first employees in the founding year of the Innovation Center. Now, after nearly nine years of work he leaves his employment in the Semmelweisstraße to start a new career. It is with deep regret that the ICCAS lets him go, because with Stefan Bohn it loses a reliable, dedicated and very creative colleague.
Already in 2005, Bohn brought with his Master of Biomedical Engineering important knowledge about the development of medical technology systems into the ICCAS. From the beginning, he worked on the conception and implementation of a system architecture for the vendor-independent integration of medical devices, clinical IT systems and surgical assistant systems. These activities also included the doctoral thesis which he successfully defended at the Leipzig University in 2013. Health professionals and patients at the Leipzig University Hospital already benefit from the suitable overall system. Solution strategies of the engineer can also be found in the BMBF-funded joint project OR.NET. In addition, Dr. Bohn was involved in the conception and construction of the ICCAS demonstrator OR which is used today for the preclinical testing of new technologies. Most recently, he worked on the completion of the clinical information system oncoflow which received an innovation award this year. Besides the leading of scientific and clinical projects, Stefan Bohn was also active in teaching and got involved with the ICCAS at many internal and external events.
Nine years of excellent collaboration, dynamic commitment and outstanding scientific achievements will be hard to substitute. The team of the ICCAS thanks the long-time colleague a lot for his great efforts for the benefit of the institute and its employees. It wishes him all the very best for the future and furthermore a good nose for medical technology innovations, because Dr. Stefan Bohn will stay within the medical technology sector at his new place of activity.
