Within the Focus Area we bring together researchers from different disciplines specializing in medicine, the natural sciences, and engineering. The academics commit themselves to jointly investigate the challenges of modern healthcare and how technology can be an enabler for solving them in a responsible way.
Taking a multi-scale approach, the partners explore new methods for diagnosing and treating diseases and improved technologies in the medical field. Us being an Alliance of universities of science and technology, the development of applications and medical devices is a particularly strong part of the partners’ research and innovation activities.
Our joint projects cover research in areas like innovative imaging techniques, applications to support elderly at home as well as providing the right skills to master avant-garde medical technologies.
