Dr. Frank appointed honorary professor
People like Dr. Frank who make their mark by combining scientific work and professional practice can be awarded an honorary doctorate by a German university. Frank personally received the appointment certificate on February 24 from the president of the University of Hanover, Prof. Dr. Ing. Barke.
Since summer semester 2002, Klaus Frank holds lectures on the “Regulation mechanisms of biological systems” at the Institute for Measurement and Control Technology in the mechanical engineering department. The lecture for students with a focus on medical technology is held in 5 blocks totaling 42 hours.
Dr. Frank discusses fundamental questions of biological regulation, the laws of which span from the cell to the organism through to companies, governmental systems and societies. The interdisciplinary approach connects topics of physiology or biology with engineering sciences. This is intended to reduce the language barrier between medicine and technology. Different learning targets are the focus:
- The patient-oriented development of medical technological systems
- The students should get familiar with the laws pertaining to industrial implementation of ideas
- The language barrier between medicine and technology is reduced.
