Personalized Health Basel (PHB) aims to develop and promote Personalized Health for the benefit of patients, research and society.
By harmonizing existing processes, building new information technology (IT) and biobanking infrastructures, and by forming national and international research collaborations we will consolidate the Basel area as a hub of research excellence and a place where people benefit from personalized healthcare.
Our activities are closely coordinated with our partners in Zurich within the Personalized Health Alliance Zurich-Basel. Our goal is to participate in initiatives of the Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN).
Three more projects to strengthen the collaboration between D-BSSE with the University of Basel / University Hospital / University Children's Hospital receive funding:
We invite you to participate in the 2nd workshop of the PH-Alliance Zurich-Basel on Wednesday, 10.01.2018 in Basel.
At the workshop we will highlight the selected SPHN/PHRT projects and you will hear about the current state and next steps of the national PH initiatives. We are further planning to convene once more in the research cluster groups and discuss new collaborations and opportunities within SPHN/PHRT and beyond.

A flourishing research hub needs adequate infrastructure at its foundation. PHB has defined four areas to be further developed: Clincal Data Warehouse, Biobanking, Clinical Bioinformatics, and Ethical – Legal – Societal Implications (ELSI). To ensure the infrastructure follows the needs of the science, the three research focus areas "Oncology", "Immunology", and "Infectious Diseases" will run first projects on the new platform. At the same time we work on interoperability in the same infrastructure and research focus areas with our partners of the PH-Alliance Zurich-Basel. For nation-wide data sharing and research we participate in the Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN).
