Very diverse medical technological research is carried out at the University of Twente. From organs on a chip to researching how to use robotics in the operating room. But also what possibilities there are for intelligent imaging to identify diseases more quickly, as well as research in medical physiology and there is an interdisciplinary approach to how personalized health technologies are effective in promoting health and well-being. These themes are clustered within the TechMed Centre in five Research Domains in which a diversity of research groups are linked. The research domains: Imaging & Diagnostics | more info; Biorobotics | more info; Medical physiology | more info; Bioengineering technologies | more info; Health, wellbeing and technology | more info.
It is great to see how passionate researchers within these domains are working to create an impact with their innovative research and ultimately improve healthcare through the use of medical technologies. During the TechMed Talent Talk session, we give the visitor a look behind the scenes at all this great research. Talented researchers working within different departments then present their projects.
