Projects in de life science sector

Curious about the ways in which tomorrow's world is being worked on within the health sector? In Groningen, companies, policymakers and talents are working together on the move from healing to healthy ageing. 

Shorter time-to-market for medicines


How do you ensure that new medicines can reach the market faster and then quickly become available for everyone? By carrying out studies at a very early stage among hospital patients. In this way, test results and data for new medicines are available much earlier. Clinical Research Unit does precisely this, as part of a European project. UMCG and ICON built an office together at the Healthy Ageing Campus in Groningen. 

Brainbandage that prevents leaks


Unfortunately, leaks happen far too often after an operation. This can be fatal. Liqcoseal is a durable and effective brain bandage that prevents leaks and dissolves in the body. What's more, it's very easy to use. In cooperation with the chemistry company Symeres, Polyganics is investing whether the raw materials used in the bandage can also be produced in Groningen.
