Speeding innovation for industry
Human health and the environment
Healthcare R&D must respond to the challenges of medical efficacy and cost reduction. And with the advent of preventive and predictive medicine, new solutions must not only provide care and predict acute phases of disease, they must also help keep patients healthy. CEA Tech is developing diagnostic technologies (imaging and sensors) and instruments to monitor air, water, and food quality. CEA Tech is also contributing technologies to drive decision-assistance tools and medical systems for cases where treatment is required.
During the state visit of His Excellency Emmanuel Macron President of the French Republic, the Belgian research center imec and the French research institute CEA-Leti, two world-leading research and innovation hubs in nanotechnologies for industry, announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that lays the foundation of a strategic partnership in the domains of Artificial Intelligence and quantum computing, two key strategic value chains for European industry, to strengthen European strategic and economic sovereignty.
CardioRenal recently partnered with Leti, a CEA Tech institute, to develop a remote monitoring system to keep an eye on heart failure patients in their homes. CardioRenal plans to release the system on the market in 2020.
In research conducted under the Biomargin project, a series of reliable, robust biological signatures were identified to predict the risk of rejection after a kidney transplant. The biomarkers will help doctors make the best possible decisions for their patients.
The DOSEO radiotherapy research and training center recently created a new training course combining theoretical and hands-on learning over three two-day sessions. The new course is being offered in response to high demand from medical physicists.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is coordinating the development of ISO standards for microfluidics. The goal is to speed up research and development in a field where design rules are often proprietary and empirical.
