International Workshop on Flow- Induced Blood Damage in Rotating Systems.

Rostock, Germany
29-30 August 2019

The Workshop

Two Days of Powerful Talks

Research on blood damage in rotating systems is a main subject of the Institute of Turbomachinery (ITU) at the University of Rostock. With a history of 600 years, Rostock is one of the oldest universities in Germany. The technical faculty founded in 1951 was the first one ever established at a classical university in Germany.

To enhance international innovation, we invite you to discuss in workshops current research about flow-induced blood damage in rotating systems, especially in ventricular assist devices.

We are pleased that we can include exciting presentations in the program and hope that it will lead to challenging and innovative discussions.

The following presentation programme will take place on 29th of August from 12:00 until 17:30 and on 30th of August from 09:00 until 16:30.

The workshop will take place in the WIROtel in Rostock-Warnemünde. The technology centre is situated close to the beach of Warnemünde. A wide selection of hotels can be found nearby.



We are pleased to present this year's program for the upcoming International Workshop on Flow-Induced Blood Damage in Rotating Systems. 
You can find it below or download it here.

We are looking forward to meet you in Rostock!
