Medicine 4.0. – Organic Electronics in Modern Medicine

Letting blind people see, returning sensation to numb limbs, alleviating pain - the use of new digital technologies in medicine is a source of great hope. Medicine 4.0 not only has the potential to optimize processes and working methods in the health care system, but also facilitates the early identification of diseases and the development of innovative treatment methods.

Organic electronics is one of the technical foundations for digitization in the medical field. It deals with the development of electronic circuits based on organic compounds. Its use in medicine offers the chance to advance the cures for chronic diseases such as Parkinson's disease or epilepsy, to restore lost sensory and bodily functions and to improve the quality of life of people with health problems in various ways.

This year's symposium of the Hector Fellow Academy, the vision of which is to promote top interdisciplinary research in the field of STEM, focuses on this exciting topic. In lectures by renowned experts, organic electronics and their fields of application are examined from various perspectives and their role in the development of cutting-edge technologies on the road towards medicine 4.0 is discussed.

The event takes place in cooperation with the Technische Universität Dresden (Dresden University of Technology).

The program will mainly be in German but simultaneously interpreted into English.
