Platform for research and transfer of innovations into patient care
The High-Performance Center Medical and Pharmaceutical Engineering was launched in March 2021. With a focus on personalized implants and respiratory systems as well as on individualized drug manufacturing, the goal is to create a platform for research and the transfer of innovations into patient care.
Under the leadership of the Fraunhofer Institute for Toxicology and Experimental Medicine ITEM in Hannover, the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST in Braunschweig and the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Individualized and Cell-Based Medical Engineering IMTE in Lübeck have joined forces to form the High-Performance Center Medical and Pharmaceutical Engineering. Further partners include several companies as well as site-specific research partners such as the Hannover Medical School (MHH), the Leibniz University Hannover (LUH), the Lower Saxony Center for Biomedical Engineering, Implant Research and Development (NIFE), Braunschweig University of Technology (TU Braunschweig) with its Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering (PVZ), and the BioMedTec Science Campus in Lübeck with the University of Lübeck, TH Lübeck, and the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH).
