Inventing technology for the healthcare of tomorrow


Our vision is to make a difference in healthcare by translating advances in science and technology for the benefit of all

Technology has become an integral part of modern medicine. Solving methodological and technical challenges in medical diagnosis and therapy is our mission, with the ultimate goal of improving quality of life in each individual.

As such, we

  • develop advanced technologies for future medical diagnosis and therapies,
  • investigate their physical principles and physiological mechanisms,
  • push the frontiers in multi-disciplinary and translational research,
  • provide continuous high-level education and advanced training,
  • collaborate with national and international academic and industrial institutions, and
  • provide a hub for innovation within the Medical University of Vienna and beyond, while
  • consciously utilizing available resources.



An international forum on the challenges of the pandemic and its effects on our society – from pandemics in history to social, societal, political, and economic aspects of social and mental distancing.

René Werkmeister is now guest editor of the special issue “Advanced Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in Ophthalmology” in the journal Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417).


As a pioneer in multimodal photoacoustic and OCT imaging, the Leitgeb/Drexler Group contributes 2 of the top 10 papers to Biomedical Optics Express in the category Multimodal and Other Imaging Techniques for this journal's 10th anniversary. In..


The REAP consortium (including CMPBME) received EU grant to reveal drug tolerant persister cells in breast cancer both in vitro and in vivo in a mouse model using contrast enhanced multimodal optical imaging. We are proud too to share our first peer..


Motor commands integrate with sensory feedback to enable purposeful movement. CNS injury or disease that impairs movement often interrupts or alters both motor and sensory circuits. To restore movement, motor and sensory circuits have been generally..


In diesem Kalender von ecoplus werden 12 tolle Nachwuchstalente (ausgewählt auf Grund ihrer Forschungsleistung, einer pro Institut/Universität)  vorgestellt, die an den vier niederösterreichischen Technopol-Standorten tätig sind.Das..


Angelika Unterhuber and Marco Andreana are now Guest Editors of: "Applications of Advanced Imaging Technology in Biomedical Engineering", a special issue of Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417). This special issue belongs to the section..


Recent research of epidural and transcutaneous electrical spinal cord stimulation has demonstrated unprecedented improvements in motor function thought to be irreversibly lost due to chronic, severe spinal cord injury. Studies in parallel assess..


Eine neue Lasertechnologie soll in Zukunft Augenkrankheiten früher diagnostizieren. Sie untersucht die biochemische Zusammensetzung der Netzhaut. Da das Sehorgan direkt mit dem Gehirn verbunden ist, könnte die Methode möglicherweise sogar auch..
