TIMed CENTER Center for Technological Innovation in Medicine

What's new?

The exchange of ideas and opinions is important to us! This is why the TIMed Center regularly organizes cooperative workshops and participates in interesting events.

Medical Technology Forum: Presentation of the TIMed Center's Core Facilities

For the 15th time in a row, the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria invites experts working in the healthcare sector to an event on its campus in Linz: In the context of the Medical Technology Forum 2018, not only interesting sessions about the topics digital health, medical materials and hybrid surgical simulators are offered. The special highlight of this year's event is the presentation of the TIMed Center's Core Facilities. More...

Project Vascular MicroLab: Looking for the origin of thromboses

Biological systems are increasingly replacing experiments with animals. In the TIMed CENTER, one aspect of this technology - the field of microfluidics to be precise - is used to investigate how human cells and artificial organs react to drugs, nanoparticles and pathogens. The research focus of the project Vascular MicroLab, which was started in October 2018, is directed at studying thrombogenesis. More...

Project SPUSI: Smart patients for the training of diagnostics-skills

Artificial replications of the human body, better known as smart phantoms, may serve a variety of purposes. While their role in practising surgical interventions becomes more and more important, smart phantoms are sparsely used for training in diagnostics. The project SPUSI, which is about to start in October 2018, this situation is intended to change. More...

Project BioCETA: Establishing a standard for the quality assessment of bio particles

The goal of the project BioCETA is to investigate how the biological functionality of bio particles may be sustained in the course of industrial manufacturing processes. With its work, the research group at the campus Linz of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria wants to lay the foundation for the development and improvement of applications in the field of pharmacology, bio technology and material engineering.
