HEALTH - Institute for Biomedical Research and Technologies – provides a link between basic medical research and industrial application. By forming strategic partnerships with both regional and international partners in the scientific and industrial sectors, HEALTH develops comprehensive, interdisciplinary solutions to problems encountered in the fields of medicine, pharmacy, medical technology and health care research. Successful R & D activities are based on ongoing cooperative efforts with universities, particularly the Medical University of Graz, as well as our independent scientific work.
Innovative ideas, products & solutions from HEALTH demonstrably contribute to an improved quality of life for people with medical needs.
Industry meets science
The added value of our work arises from the combination of excellent scientific research with high industrial standards. We set ourselves high standards for the quality of our services and products. We are certified according to EN ISO 13485 and Good Laboratory Practice, and our state-of-the-art infrastructure enables us to bridge the gap between research and industrial application.
Our focus areas
We work on innovative solutions and focus on our core competencies in the following areas:
- Pharmacological Research in the Skin
We are investigating pharmacological principles of the skin to enable the development of effective and affordable therapies with minimal side effects for people with skin diseases.
- Pharmacological Research in the Brain
We are doing pharmacological research in the healthy and the diseased brain to enable the development of effective therapies that can be tailored to each individual patient with a neurological disease.
- Metabolic Research
We are applying our technologies to investigate the basic principles of metabolism and thus enable new treatments of widespread metabolic diseases such as diabetes and obesity, as well as an improvement in general aging processes.
- Digital Healthcare
We contribute to a meaningful digitization of processes and decisions in healthcare to improve the quality of treatment while giving staff more time to work with people.
