Each research area is covered by one or more research programmes. The research may include prevention as well as diagnosis and therapy.
The areas are determined after the top managers of the major hospitals and the primary health care have identified needs, and Karolinska Institutet and KTH Royal Institute of Technology have commented on research interests and competence.
Projects are announced within the respective programs. An assessment group consisting of national and international experts is appointed by the steering committee. The assessment group proposes a ranking of applications. The steering committee then recommends which projects will be granted funds.
To ensure clinical relevance in the projects, participation of volunteers and healthy subjects is a prerequisite. This is possible within MedTechLabs through the involvement of Region Stockholm. The projects within the centre should follow good clinical research practice (GCP), ethics testing teams and other ethics of care and research ethics. They should also be approved by the proper authorities.
Focus on recruitment of the Faculty of Applied Sciences
MedTechLabs also involves an effort to recruit young researchers to KTH and KI in the form of assistant lecturers. Collaboration in technology and clinical research creates the conditions for research results that can then be implemented in health care for the benefit of the patient.
Strategic recruitments with career paths at KTH or Karolinska Institutet have been conducted to strengthened the research program Spectral CT-imaging and Endovascular Techniques. The fellowship programme may be expanded with mobility programmes in order to attract internationally renowned researchers to conduct their research at MedTechLabs, hosted by either KTH or Karolinska Institutet.
MedTechLabs has 14 research leaders who are affiliated to the centre. Each program is led by a Program Director from KI and KTH respectively.
