Welcome to KI for Health science and Technology

Thank you for visiting our institute!

Health Science & Technology (HST) is a field that put efforts to foster as a future growth of human welfare and health and also industry along with Information Technology. Though several departments at KAIST have been worked on state of the art HST and advanced in research skills, those efforts were not enough to create novel value or propose a vision to explore new markets. KIHST aims to develop new high-impact technologies through combination of medicine and engineering and provide a new platform for the future health markets. To achieve this goal, Biophotonics, Neuroimaging & Neuromodulation and Therpeutic Bioengineering were set as core competencies to establish infra that can integrate R&D task forces from multidisciplinary departments at KAIST for synergistic results. Furthermore, Translational Medical Engineering will be conducted to aid development and application for practical health technology that reflects real needs of medical field.
