04: Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Engineering – Schlüsseltechnologien des 21. Jahrhunderts

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
in englischer Sprache

Die Herausforderungen in der biomedizinischen Technik sowie in der Entwicklung und Produktion moderner Therapeutika sind drastisch gestiegen. Ein wichtiges Indiz dafür ist die signifikante Reduktion neuer Medikamentenzulassungen seit 1995.
Der Arbeitskreis befasst sich mit modernen Möglichkeiten, dieser Entwicklung entgegenzusteuern, zum Beispiel durch den Einsatz von „high-throughput“ Methoden, wie „lab-on-a-chip“, oder durch Nanotechnologie und modernes Qualitäts- und Risikomanagement, gepaart mit prädiktiven Modellierungsansätzen. Computational medicine etwa soll dazu beitragen, Alterserkrankungen wie Atherosklerose oder Osteoporose besser zu analysieren. Eine voranschreitende digitalisierte und personifizierte Betrachtung des Menschen wird zur verbesserten medizinischen Fürsorge führen.
