Young Researchers from RWTH Aachen University were Invited to the 64th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

Since 1951, the annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting is held in Lindau, Germany. It provides a platform for scientific dialogue and encounters between Nobel laureates and leading international young scientists. This year's meeting is dedicated to Physiology and Medicine. At the end of June, 30-40 Nobel laureates will meet with 600 young researchers, who were selected from more than 20,000 candidates, in Lindau.

Among them are two researchers from the Philips Chair for Medical Information Technology at RWTH Aachen University, Dipl.-Ing. Christoph BrĂ¼ser and Dr.-Ing. Tobias Wartzek. Both are working on new technologies for non-contact monitoring of important vital signs, such as recording heart rate, respiratory rate, or detecting cardiac arrhythmias, without the need for electrodes or cables to be attached to the body. These technologies have the capacity to enable new applications in the long-term treatment of chronic diseases or for increasing patient safety in the general wards of hospitals.
