Denmark’s leading technology center, Danish Technological Institute, visits CREB seeking for synergies

Last Monday 2nd, CREB UPC received a visit from the Danish Technological Institute (DTI), the main technological center of Denmark. Their visit was motivated by the search for synergies and collaboration between both institutions. It was a pleasure to have such a complete delegation, which was very interested in our ability to valorize our investigation and bring it into the market. We also took advantage of the visit to explain our strategy for generating spinoffs in CREB UPC, exposing our work methodology through Xartec Salut Venture Builder.

CREB’s researcher, Marjan Mansourian, has developed algorithms that can be used for diagnosis and prognosis of mental disorders and pathologies

First, it was used to predict the chances of children and teenagers suffering from anxiety or depression. The outbreak of COVID19 brought a new opportunity: anticipating the length of patients’ stay in intensive care, the probability of suffering from long-term effects, and even the mortality. It also proved to help identify patients who suffer from COVID19 from those who do not. In the long run, this predictive model could be used with a wide range of pathologies and improve hospitals’ management efficiency.

L’equip liderat per la Dra. Dani Tost desenvolupa un software per assajar intervencions quirúrgiques a cor obert

El software va ser desenvolupat per un equip del CREB UPC, en col·laboració amb l’hospital Clínic i la Universitat de Barcelona. Un entrenament virtual per formar els perfusionistes amb models tridimensionals que siguin realistes fisiològicament. Té com a objectiu millorar significativament les habilitats i confiança dels estudiants de perfusió i dels metges per contribuir d’aquesta manera a fer més segures les intervencions.
