The Innovation Partnership M²Aind - Multimodal Analytics and Intelligent Sensorics for the Healthcare Industry is a network involving Mannheim University of Applied Sciences and numerous companies in the healthcare industry and creates practice-relevant solutions for industry in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region.
The research and work focus is at the interface between biomedicine and information technology. M²Aind's goal is to develop new products and services for the pharmaceutical, chemical, medical device, biotechnology and diagnostics industries using modular technology platforms.
It uses highly integrated applications with a wide range of possibilities in IT-supported process and product analysis as well as state-of-the-art optical measurement technology. The focus is, among others, drug testing and safety, drug discovery in tumors and the search for sugar substitutes.
The healthcare industry is currently facing a far-reaching development leap and its biggest challenge: the comprehensive digitization of biomolecular information and its molecular context to create unimagined opportunities for a targeted and individualized diagnosis, therapy and possibly cure of common diseases. This, however, involves an unprecedented level of complexity.
• analysis of human organs and tissues
• information technology processing
• process and product analysis for safe therapeutics
• intelligent sensor technology in medical technology
M²Aind is taking up this challenge and gathering partners from large-scale industry and SME’s in the Rhine-Neckar-Main metropolitan area at the interface between information technology and biomedicine.
M²Aind is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of the "Research at Colleges" program.
