Testing new drugs in hospitals, searching for specific biomarkers, developing sensitive prostheses or designing concepts for secure data management: Research on health has many facets. 45 of 72 Fraunhofer Institutes work in the field of health research.
At the Medica/Compamed 2019, this expertise will be impressively demonstrated. The Fraunhofer Research Institutes will present a broad spectrum of research projects and findings in the field of life science and medical technology.
The topics covered including micro-optical systems for multi-spectral measurements and imaging, printed components for Lab-on-a-Chip systems, adhesive and surface coatings applications, optical biosensors and sensor-based assessment systems, 3-D printed implants, fast diagnoses through automated analysis, AI based automation technologies, minimally invasive diagnostics, mobile based imaging processing and mobile apps for health prevention.
This is just a sample of the life and medical science expertise within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, and underlines the applied research for the benefit of industry, public administration and society.
