Stratified and precision therapies

One of the four ‘grand challenges’ we are focusing our research on is ‘stratified and precision therapies’.

Delivering safer care

Technologies that facilitate precision medical intervention and augment safe patient recovery.

Examples include:

  • Precision and robotic surgery
  • Enhanced perioperative care
  • Early detection and prevention of complications
  • Facilitated recovery
  • Prevention of long-term morbidity

Improving patient selection and monitoring response to treatment

Technologies that enable multimodality assessment  of fitness and morbidity, allowing stratified intervention and monitoring of therapeutic response.

Examples include:

  • Technologies to classify disease severity and functional deficit incorporating fusion of genetic, biochemical, and physiological data
  • Mobile technologies informing functional and physiological status
  • Biosensors and wearable devices
