T-06: Revision and individual implants in orthopedics – cost-cutting solutions for infection and osteoporosis, acronym "Osteofit 2030"

The Osteofit 2030 project is seeking to establish new manufacturing and processing methods for human implants which will eliminate the need for elaborate processing methods, thus enabling production that is easy on resources and efficient in terms of both cost and time.

This project objective is to devise methods of adapting to patient-specific requirements that go beyond the individual implant segment, and do not depend on the defect situation or bone quality.

T-07: Examinations into the manufacture of ceramic-metallic complete implants for dental surgery in powder injection molding - "complete implant"

The aim of this project is to develop a particularly efficient manufacturing process based on powder injection molding to produce one-piece complete implants for dental surgery. The intention is to combine the advantages of a one-piece implant with immediate loading thanks to an exterior parabolic design adapted to mechanical and medical requirements, and with special surface structuring based on micro-grooves and the differing material properties of titanium and zirconium oxide.

T-09: Developing an in-vivo sensor for the detection of infectionswith helicobacter pylori

This project has various goals. The main aim is to develop a fast and highly selective helicobacter pylori (Hp) in vivo sensor. The measuring procedure is to be performed on the basis of an already developed in vitro sensor, which has been tested in a clinical study. This new and unique technique should enable gastroenterologists to quickly and simply conduct multiple Hp diagnoses during a gastroscopy, making the need to perform a biopsy for Hp testing superfluous. The results can be read immediately and any treatment can be commenced straight away following the examination.

T-03: Personalized pharmacotherapy in psychiatry

The aims of this project are to minimize the unwanted effects of drugs or of interaction between drugs and to thus improve patient care while, at the same time, reduce costs in health services.

Currently available drug information systems and their electronic implementation still have considerable deficits.

T-01: "PEP" – Personalized Effect-Controlled Pharmacotherapy

Nowadays, treatment with medicines can only be handled within strict limits according to the needs of the individual patient and adapted to the situation in hand. The continuous and variable intake of liquid medicines through a new, miniaturized infusion pump system is designed to enable personalized, individual, effect-controlled treatment with drugs. This could lead to substantial progress, especially in post-operative and oncologic pain management.

T-08: Clinical on-site and online anesthetic gas analysis and monitoring

The goal of this project is to demonstrate the usefulness of a sensor concept based on Raman spectroscopy using test measurements at the hospital for anesthesiology in connection and in comparison with modern anesthesia equipment, and to draw up the advantages of the concept.
