Innovations by Alma Mater Studiorium – Università Di Bologna in medical research
By Intesa Sanpaolo
In medicine the journey from base research to the availability of new therapies, products and services is long, complex and risky. It is only with ambitious and innovative research projects that effective solutions to health challenges still lacking an answer can be obtained. Health research is not simply a matter of technologies and products, however, but also of the way services are organised, resources used and systems funded.
In this context it is important to consider the transferability of innovations to facilitate research, the development of new products and benefits, the impact of, and return on, public investments for society. This review of a selection of the university’s patents in the Life Science and MedTech spheres describes some of the important scientific results already achieved and prefigures the concrete applications deriving from them.
