Fraunhofer Life Sciences Engineering Group
- © 2009 Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
Founded as a venture between Fraunhofer CMI and Fraunhofer IPT, the Life Sciences Engineering (LSE) Group addresses the distinctive needs and constraints at the intersection of life sciences and engineering. Through collaborations with academic institutions, such as our formal Alliance with Boston University in the area of Medical Devices, Diagnostics, and Instrumentation, we work together closely with scientists, engineers, and clinicians at the school and local area hospitals. In this way, we facilitate the accelerated translation of advanced biomedical research into products ready for commercialization and use in clinical applications.
Our core strengths in the areas of medical instruments and devices and automation of biological & biomolecular processes provide a unique resource for your industrial R&D, design, and automation needs. We have experience in all fields of production technology and use our expertise to design and build custom prototype devices or fully functional instruments / automation systems.
The Fraunhofer LSE Group has offices in both Boston, Massachusetts and Aachen, Germany.
Thanks to our access to Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft´s large industrial network and to our on-campus locations at Boston University and RWTH Aachen, we possess the know-how, infrastructure, technical resources, and customer proximity that are required to fulfill unique and challenging application requirements. In our world class laboratories and fabrication facilities we can realize comprehensive solutions and develop new manufacturing technologies, customized stand-alone electromechanical products, and turnkey automation systems for a myriad of technical markets. Our clients comprise industrial companies of all sizes and all sectors of industry.
Research of practical utility for private and public enterprises lies at the heart of all activities pursued by Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Having developed and leveraged revolutionary technologies, such as the MP3 format, Fraunhofer's services are solicited by customers and contractual partners in industry, the service sector, and public administration.
At present, Fraunhofer-Gesellshaft maintains more than 80 research units worldwide. The majority of staff are qualified scientists and engineers who work with an annual research budget of $2.1 billion. Of this sum, more than $1.6 billion is generated through contract research.
