Medical Technologies

The study of basic processes of life as well as the development of diagnostic and therapeutic tools advanced substantially during recent years. At KU Leuven, creating synergy between medical expertise and engineering technologies has always been a priority and still opens new approaches with high scientific and medical potential.
The following pages represent a cross section through the actual activities in these domains, ranging from basic approaches in the clusters of excellence funded by the university, over innovative projects with support from ERC and the Odysseus program, to a variety of valorization projects.
