Medical technology for sustainable healthcare.

Prof. Dr. Cornelia van Duijn is a professor of Genetic Epidemiology at the Erasmus University Medical Center and Translational Epidemiology at the University of Leiden. For over 25 years, her work has focused on discovering genes involved in age related disorders including Alzheimer disease, glaucoma, dyslipidemia and hypertension. She has been a leading figure in various international genome wide association consortia including the International Genetics of Alzheimer Disease Project (IGAP) and the ADSP (Alzheimer Disease Sequencing Project). At present, she combines genomics research with high-throughput metabolomics in large scale epidemiological biobanks and organ-on-chip models to translate finding to prevention and care.


Medical technology for sustainable healthcare.
The potential of innovative technology for realising sustainable healthcare is discussed by Prof. dr. Cock van Duijn (genomics and metabolomics in epidemiological biobanks and organ-on-chip models) and Prof. dr. Jenny Dankelman (novel medical instruments, haptics, training and simulation systems for minimally invasive techniques). Prof. dr. Martine de Vries discusses how the traditional distinction between care and research impedes the realisation of improvements and innovations in medicine. A 'Learning Healthcare System' can overcome these problems but also has ethical and legal challenges. Dr. Agaath Sluijter illustrates how Medical Delta 2.0 catalyses health innovation and cooperation
