Today's Research, Tomorrow's Medicine
The Bosch Institute carries out research into the normal functioning of the human body and the way this changes in disease. The emphasis is on finding new ways of detecting, preventing and treating human disease and discovering the factors essential for the health of the individual. To this end, the Bosch Institute carries out "from bench to bedside" research with projects that range from basic research at the molecular level right through to the application of research findings in a clinical setting.
Research in the Institute is divided into 5 Research Themes:
- Nervous system, senses & movement
brain, nerves, hearing, vision, muscles, bone
- Cancer, cell biology & development
cellular physiology, developmental biology, malignancy
- Infection, immunity & inflammation
infectious diseases, inflammatory disease, immunology
- Organ & tissue replacement
transplantation, complications of diabetes, wound healing, growth factors, stem cell biology, bioengineering of tissues and organs, biomaterials
Organ & tissue replacement is a new theme of research which will undergo rapid expansion over the next few years as part of the Institute's Strategic Plan.
