Center for the exchange of Physics and Medicine

Dear Sir or Madam,

Examples of applied physics can be found in every hospital, like diagnostic or imaging devices. But what would happen, if we would also take into account its theoretical aspects to investigate diseases? Not only would it be possible to describe the chemistry of diseases but also the forces involved. An interdisciplinary center in Erlangen will serve scientists from both disciplines as a platform for exchange in the future. Read more in our current interview.

I wish you a relaxing week!

Physics has always supported medical science, especially when it comes to practical implementation. Now physicists and health professionals join in collaborative research at an interdisciplinary Center in Erlangen and incorporate fundamental principles of theoretical physics in their studies of diseases.

Without any delay: drug dose adjustment at the point of care

Topic of the Month

Many therapeutic drugs are very powerful, but they are also very toxic at the same time. Thus, they have to be measured regularly, again and again, so that an adjustment of the individual drug dosage can be made. Until now, the "normal" way was to take the blood sample, send it to a central laboratory and get the results after some days. A new point-of-care test can measure it in 15 minutes.
