Center for Health & Bioresources

Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The Center for Health & Bioresources has core expertise in nano and sensor technologies, system integration, molecular biological omics technologies, modelling and simulation, and addresses customers in the health care, environmental and agricultural sectors.  Our researchers solve challenges associated with demographic change, resource scarcity and environmental pollution backed by longstanding experience and excellent research infrastructure. HEALTHY AGING We develop inventions and solutions that enable early disease detection and support healthy and active aging. This is made possible through ambient assisted living technologies, molecular diagnostics and imaging, innovative implants and prostheses, contactless radio technology and cardiovascular research. NATURAL RESOURCES AND THE ENVIRONMENT
The Center for Health & Bioresources is committed to the sustainable and innovative management and use of biological resources. Our research focuses on promoting plant growth using specific microorganisms and efficient production processes.
