Why ICT for health?


Biobank UZ

You share, we care

Each of you carries around a wealth of information for biomedical research, be it in your blood, your tissue, your DNA. With your consent, and of course respecting your privacy, hospitals can store some of that information in their biomedical warehouses. Well equipped biobanks enable researchers to simultaneously explore the biomedical information of whole populations, and as such develop tailored therapies. So that when you share, we can care better.



You are unique

And you deserve unique care. Thanks to advances in clinical and computational research, ‘one size fits all’ is no longer the dogma in health care. Medicine gets personal: tailored diagnosis, dedicated therapy. Unique, just like you.




ATCG: it’s your story

This is 0.003% of your DNA; ATCG: it’s your story
Your DNA tells more than you would expect from just 4 letters. And your story is a valuable story. Genomic researchers are working hard to unravel what your genes tell about your health and the treatments that suit you best. But your story is also a private story. No reading without your consent.
