The CHT aims at providing technological solutions in five biomedical areas: Regenerative Medicine and Cell Therapy, Diagnostics, Surgery and Prosthetics, Rehabilitation, and Personalized Medicine.
The research will be organized through a horizontal coordination layer and a number of technological and application challenges that will be redefined every three years.
For the 2015-2017 timespan, six strategic key activities (pillars) will represent the main focus:
Advanced diagnostic instrumentation
Bio-medical informatics systems and Big Data for translational medicine
Nano-medicine technology for diagnostics and therapy
Legal, ethical and socio-technical aspects of new technologies in biomedicine
Horizontal activities, including teaching and education, and pillars integration
However, other research activities are also planned, in particular in the areas of neurosciences and exposomics.
