3 Radical innovations to discover

One in every two people will develop cancer in their lifetime. Early detection of tumor cells in the bloodstream can be life-saving and would allow us to treat cancer patients even before cancer has developed.

Only 1 in 10,000,000,000 red and white cells is a tumor cell, which made filtering out these abnormal cells in such an early stage impossible until now.

Imec has developed a breakthrough technology that will be able to do precise diagnostics using a so-called lab-on-chip cell sorter technology.

One of the people responsible for bringing the miniaturized-lab-system to life is Dr. Chengxun Liu - a senior scientist at Imec. Imec is the world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technologies.

Dr. Liu will highlight this and 2 other Imec inventions that will turn the healthcare industry upside down.

One is a novel organ-on-chip platform that allows accurate pharmacological studies without the use of experiment-animals.

A third example is DNA sequencing that truly allows measuring DNA on single cell level.

Join this session and be amazed by how the future of healthcare could look like.
