Présentation et objectifs

Healthy Living - cursus Health 4 Life Engineering 

With the rapid advance of biomedical engineering, life sciences and physical sciences have converged to create a new discipline: biomedicine. This convergence is helping scientists to make important breakthroughs, such as nanoscale systems for disease detection and drug delivery, predictive computer models of disease progression and drug response, and increasingly affordable forms of biometric analysis for personalized medicine.

Over the past 150 years, average life expectancy has increased by approximately 4 to 5 years per generation. the gap between the active and inactive has widened, and pressure on health and social care costs for society has increased. as chronic disease becomes more prevalent and populations continue to age, eu healthcare systems are striving to shift the burden of care from hospitals to the community and the individual. There is consequently a growing need for biomedical innovations to be more user-centred, empowering patients to manage their healthy living and active ageing. Postgraduate recruits to the fast-growing sector of biomedical engineering will need to bring not only their expertise in a particular field, but also a thorough grounding in a range of technologies and the ability to apply their knowledge and skills to the design of new products and services. Health4life addresses this need with a novel programme combining education and research.



Atouts de la formation

Students investigate important questions at the interfaces of biomedical engineering, molecular and nanoscale biotechnology, computational mathematics and clinical research. They undertake individually mentored thesis research projects in laboratories at uga or in partner universities, affiliated spin-offs and teaching hospitals.UGA and its partner institutions provide students with a broad but high-level programme of courses in core subjects which they choose in relation to their individual field of research. these are further enriched by a series of advanced courses in the fundamentals of engineering and biomedical science. students also acquire key transversal skills such as teamwork, management of complex processes, conceptual approaches, entrepreneurship and intercultural awareness.
Biohealth computing schoolsUnique to health4life’s curriculum are the interdisciplinary and intensive biohealth computing schools (biohc), organised and hosted by the european scientific institute in archamps (greater geneva). as well as meeting and interacting with leading experts from academia, industry and international organisations, students are coached in the use of design thinking methodology to address unmet needs in human and environmental health, with the opportunity to pitch their innovation ideas to a panel of international experts. Health4life is heavily research & innovation- oriented. The programme benefits from the region’s rich ecosystem offering a level of technological know-how unrivalled in Europe, and a truly multidisciplinary approach to scientific research. Grenoble is at the crossroads of three internationally recognised hubs of healthcare, micro-nanotechnology and it-iot. Home to some of the world’s best research centres, grenoble has spurred the creation of a growing cohort of start-ups and has attracted leading multinationals (bioMérieux, GE healthcare, Becton Dickinson, Roche Diagnostics, and Covidien) seeking to carve out a position in the rapidly-growing medtech industry.

Health4life brings together these strengths in biomedical practice, research, innovation, and entrepreneurship and offers students attractive internships from affiliated teaching hospitals, research institutes (including the cea, europe’s largest independent research centre in nanoelectronics and technology), biotech and medical device companies. Moreover, the programme collaborates with local and regional innovation service providers such as CIC-IT, Biopolis, Linksium, Eccami, Medic@lps, Tasda, Minalogic and Lyonbiopôle.

Health4life is part of the eit health master on technological innovation on health, founded on long-standing partnerships with major european universities, such as Universitat de Barcelona, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Universidade de Lisboa, Universita de Torino. students are also recruited from world-class universities outside Europe, including Manipal, Soochow, Tongji, Hangzou and Sfax.Contactsri-pharmacie@
