• SIKT will be at the forefront nationally and internationally in research and development of medical signal processing and communication technology, and will be able to provide advice on operations and procurement projects at the Centre.
• SIKT will lead advanced research projects at the forefront of international research.
• SIKT will develop technological solutions for patient monitoring and new treatment methods, including minimally invasive and image-guided treatment.
• SIKT will stimulate employees to hold secondary, academic positions outside the hospital.
• At all times, SIKT will have sufficient staffing and competence to be able to assist various projects initiated by other environments and contribute to a seamless collaboration between technologists and clinicians.
• SIKT will contribute with the necessary technological staffing and competence to be able to participate in the interdisciplinary projects at the Intervention Centre and support patient treatment where this is necessary.
• SIKT will have the following target areas during the period:
o Develop new medical sensors based on bionanotechnologies (bionanoelectronics).
o Develop communication and computational systems based on biological organisms, such as molecules, cells and organs, which can communicate with the Internet and cloud services for storing and processing of large amounts of data.
o Develop new algorithms for the processing and understanding of complex, large amounts of data from sensors, genetic materials, medical records, test results, images etc., with regard to high precision diagnostics, treatment and follow-up.
o Perform research and development from basic research in the form of new theories, mathematical modeling, computer-assisted simulations, and prototype development to preclinical testing and validation – “from bench to bedside”.
