JHU and HHI to Jointly Research on Medical Applications of Integrated Optical Sensors

An MOU has been inked between the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) and the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) at the 2012 BIO International Convention in the United States.

Under the agreement terms, a research will be conducted on the new medical uses of integrated optical sensors, which are small and high-sensitive devices that have the potential to identify diseases.

As per the agreement, the two entities will conduct a study to explore how the medical conditions can be identified, diagnosed and treated with the help of the technology developed by HHI. Scientists with clinical knowledge from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine will partner with engineers and researchers from HHI.

The Johns Hopkins University’s corporate relations director, Helen Montag stated that the university is delighted to collaborate with HHI, whose experience and knowledge matches with the university’s excellence in patient care and research. This collaboration will enable the university to provide a promising technology to the medical field in order to enhance patient care across the world.

A Senior Director from Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, Frank Menzler stated that this partnership will use the excellent capabilities of these two organizations to jointly expand new point-of-care clinical tools. Menzler added that they are elated to combine the clinical experience from Johns Hopkins and the sensor technologies from Fraunhofer HHI.

Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute provides a wide range of research capabilities from optical-sensor technologies, components and systems, electronic-imaging technologies, optical communication networks and to mobile broadband systems.
