Personalized Health Basel

Personalized Health Basel A joint project organization of the University of Basel, University Hospital Basel, and University Children’s Hospital Basel

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).

Recent & Upcoming

Our mission

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).
