In this VTT innovation programme we are continuing to develop the technologies
for personalized health and well being. The focus is on combining VTT
technologies in ICT, biotechnology and diagnostics for future health care
providers and for health care industry.
By combining and mining systems biology data, digital health data from
different sources, a better understanding of the disease state at the personal
level can be generated. Specific biomarkers can aid future diagnostics and
therapy decisions and new biosensor technologies are being developed for
future molecular diagnostics at point-of-care settings and at home. VTT
technologies can be used not only for follow-up of treatment at the individual
level, but also for analysis of markers for healthy eating - and support for
living at home.
