What is PHRT?
Personalized Health and Related Technologies (PHRT) is a strategic focus area (SFA) of the ETH Domain.
The ETH Domain is a world leader in the development of technologies and data analysis. Through PHRT, it aims to support and drive transformation in Personalized Health by providing clinicians with access to ETH technologies in order to evaluate their potential contributions to clinical decision making. PHRT fosters the generation of multi –omics data and its subsequent integrated computational analysis in a secure IT environment.
The goals of the program include improving the quality of Precision Medicine by supporting earlier and better diagnosis as well as providing a choice of tailored therapeutic strategies for patients based on their particular biological makeup and other individual factors. PHRT achieves this by translating results from basic research into clinical applications. With its projects, PHRT is building bridges for interdisciplinary research between ETH Domain science & engineer, and medicine & clinical research.
