From Molecule to Society
Research at HST spans “from Molecule to Society”. It is conducted on 1) the human cell and the molecules it is built from, 2) the human body within e.g. neurology, pain, rehabilitation, biomechanics and cardiology, and 3) medical informatics systems within areas as image analysis, decision support and telemedicine.
The laboratories of HST support research as well as teaching, and the physical dimensions of objects in the laboratories span from micrometers (the cell) to several meters (human run).
