Sustainably improving the quality of life

An increasingly long-lived and greying population continues to drive up both healthcare burden and cost, since about 50% of our elderly suffer from chronic diseases. And although the human body has an amazing ability to repair itself, sometimes tissues or organs become too damaged. Biomedical materials can replace or even regenerate damaged tissue.
Solutions developed in InSciTe must be sustainable on two levels: they must improve the quality of patients' lives and help keep healthcare affordable. This entails replacing long-term, expensive care with solutions that enable earlier intervention, using biomedical materials to prevent or restore tissue damage before it becomes too severe, or replace tissue all together.

The biomedical RT&D program is centered around three disease areas cardiovascular, orthopedics and ophthalmology. InSciTe's focus on translational research aims to establish proof of concept in first patients.
