Better understand obesity

Dear Sir or Madam,

Can you imagine a world without animal testing? Organ-on-a-chip systems at least offer the possibility of reducing animal testing, because they can already be used to reproduce more complex human biology outside the body. In Tübingen, researchers are currently working on a model system to better understand obesity-linked secondary diseases and comorbidities in the future – in effect, an adiposity-on-a-chip system. Learn more in our interview.

Stay healthy!

Smart hospital design – it benefits all of us

Topic of the Month

When we think of modern hospitals, we often think of high-tech medical devices, patient beds surrounded by machines, or networked operating rooms. Yet it is not only the equipment in patient rooms that leads to a better and faster recovery. A hospital that delivers a positive experience for patients, their families, and medical staff centers on smart design from the very beginning.
