Healthcare

A vision for a world immune to disease

The convergence of digital technologies with physics and biology is transforming the quality and accessibility of healthcare around the world.  At GE Research, our interdisciplinary teams are bringing all three pieces together in unique and powerful ways to explore new fields and drive new breakthroughs.

We are focused on the emerging field of bioelectronic medicine which requires a deep understanding of electrical signals in the human body to enable better treatments for chronic diseases such as diabetes. We’re combining more than 100 years of knowledge in generating and regulating electricity from our Power business with our deep experience in biology to advance biolelectronics research.  We’re also translating our experience in automation and cellular analysis to standardize and scale up the production of therapeutic cells for engineered T-cells and other cell-based therapies.

With many world-first discoveries in X-Ray, MRI, CT and Ultrasound imaging, we’re driving the next set of healthcare innovations that will enable faster, better images with deeper levels of analysis to help doctors improve patient care and outcomes.  At GE Research, we are using the power of our interdisciplinary model to develop technologies and tools to facilitate treatments for diseases and enhance access to treatment modalities for people around the world.
