Life Sciences

Research at the interface between nature, technology, medicine and the environment.

The future of our health services is being shaped by opposite trends: while our life expectancy is increasing, causing a shift in the spectrum of diseases towards more chronically ill patients and increasing healthcare costs, the advances in medical information technology and the phenomenon of personalised and tailored medicine are promising an ever higher quality of healthcare.  New diagnostic procedures, miniature mobile devices, apps and virtual tools for self-diagnosis add to the picture.

We conduct research along the entire healthcare value creation chain. The spectrum ranges from the development of medical products and drugs, technologies and production processes through to their production and market launch. Another research focus is the development of resource-saving technologies and environmental procedures.
