Science and Technology for Health (STH)

Within this research line, the activities of DIBRIS are mainly focused on four areas, characterized by a high level of multidisciplinarity and complementarity.

Medical informatics: Development and use of statistical and informatics methods for the analysis, management and reuse of biomedical data, supported by standards, for applications to research for health, knowledge extraction and decision support.

Neuroengineering: study of the nervous system at several levels, from genes to neurons up to behavioral and cognitive mechanisms, both in normal conditions and in pathologic conditions, also by definition of models and the design of artificial systems.

Cellular and tissue engineering: development of methods and techniques at micro and nano levels for biology and medicine, both from diagnosis and therapy point of view.

Therapy, rehabilitation, well-being: study and development of methods for man-machine interaction, intelligent systems, multi-modal interactive systems, and serious games.

ERC classification:
PE6-Computer Science and Informatics: Informatics and information systems, computer science, scientific computing, intelligent systems.
PE7-Systems and Communication Engineering: Electronic, communication, optical and systems engineering.
PE8 Products and Processes Engineering: Product design, process design and control, construction methods, civil engineering, energy systems, material engineering.
