Prof.dr. Carlijn Bouten

Themeleader Regenerative Medicine

“We want to cure people with smart solutions that are minimally invasive and last a lifetime. For example by injecting stem cells or by implanting lab grown tissues, like heart valves. Especially for patients with chronic or hereditary disorders, who nowadays need lifelong medical treatment, this could be a solution.”

Themeleader Bio-molecular Diagnostics

“Our vision is that biomolecular sensing will strongly impact healthcare in the 21st century, for the best possible monitoring, coaching, and treatment of people. Sensing systems will become smaller, faster, more precise, more integrated, more specific, and more sensitive.”

Themeleader Robotics

“We need the help of robots in the future, because some things they do better. More accurate, better, cheaper. But we also need humans, still!”

Themeleader Participatory Health and Wellbeing

“We develop environments that have a stimulating effect on personal and social health and wellbeing. This is possible by technologies that will allow people to live indenpendantly as long as possible. Wearable sensors and people-oriented information systems play an important role in this.”

Themeleader Participatory Health and Wellbeing

“Our goal is to generate reliable real time information on a patient’s health, with minimal stress for that patient. This is for example possible by using image diagnosis of prostate cancer, that superfluous the need of biopsies which are invasive and inaccurate. Using internet technology to provide patients with expert care from specialists at home, for instance through sensors in their clothes, is also promising.”

Dr. Pieter Van Gorp

Theme leader Data science in Health

"Our Health Analytics research aims to transform health services enabled by digitization and new information collection systems (e.g. patient portals, IoT, cloud computing, big data, and wearables). We take into account both effectiveness and costs. Furthermore, our Quantified Self research focuses on activity related data from individual people in “everyday life” related to their health and wellbeing."
