The participating research groups are closely connected to MIRA, the Institute for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine.
MIRA's research can be subdivided into three Research Themes. Researchers into disciplines that are connected with one another work here together on such issues as: Bionanotechnology & Advanced Biomanufacturing, Neural & Motor Systems and Imaging & Diagnostics. This working method results in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research, it strengthens the cohesion between current research and it facilitates the opening up of entirely new fields of research.
MIRA has appointed various clinical professors in order to ensure that the wants of clinicians remain central and to encourage cooperation with the medical community. Another important mainstay of MIRA's is entrepreneurship, in order to ensure that patients benefit from our knowledge and technology. We have an active start-up policy and work in close collaboration with (academic) hospitals, other research institutes and the business community.
