A research project called Diagnostics in 3D, to be conducted by Nijmegen’s Radboudumc in cooperation with data analytics specialist Vartion and biotech company Bio-Prodict, has just been awarded a subsidy from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through OP Oost. The aim of the project is to improve the diagnostics of rare diseases.
This is important not only because a correct diagnosis is essential for the development of treatments, but also because it can impact decisions regarding future pregnancies. The focus will be on rare diseases that cause intellectual disabilities, an area in which Radboudumc already has considerable expertise. Vartion will be providing knowledge and resources related to deep learning architecture as well as computing power.
