An interfaculty team from the UM has been awarded an Innovative Medical Devices Initiative (IMDI) grant for the development and valorisation of a highly sensitive compact breath test that can recognise diseases based on substances in the exhaled breath. This is a collaboration between the department of Paediatrics of MUMC+, CAPHRI and the department of Research Engineering (FHML), the department of Sensor Engineering (FSE), companies Alphaszenszor and Breath Medics, and various healthcare organisations in the region.
