The Jedlik Laboratories conduct research in three key areas: biology, computer science, and info-bionics, with the involvement of four, sixteen, and thirteen research groups, respectively. The research groups actively collaborate with each other, fostering a strong interdisciplinary approach in their investigations. By incorporating the latest developments in biology, bionics, electrical engineering and computer science, the faculty ensures the programs stay at the forefront of technological advancements. One notable aspect of the faculty's research is the active participation of both undergraduate and graduate students. Their participation in innovative projects has already led to the spin-off of seven start-up companies from the faculty. Presently, the Faculty is accredited to give doctoral degrees and habilitation in electrical engineering, information technology, and biology.
The Faculty focuses on a diverse range of research areas, including biology-inspired and neuromorphic models, bioinformatics, systems biology, nanotechnology, molecular dynamics, optics-modeling, sensing, and bio-interfaces. Additionally, they explore topics such as cellular wave computing, hardware-software technologies, microelectronic systems, sensor devices, human language technologies, telepresence, multimedia, sensory robotics, navigation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, software technology, digital computer algorithms, medical diagnostics as well as rehabilitation applications.
Prof. Tamás Roska (1940-2014), founding dean of the Faculty and first director of the Jedlik Laboratories wanted to create a strongly research oriented Faculty, with a unique goal in Europe to develop synergy between information technology and neuroscience. The faculty also teamed up with a few outstanding neuroscientists from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. 25 years have passed since this idea came through and the Faculty was established. Since then, research in bioinics, biology, electronics and information technology has bloomed in the Jedlik Laboratories and as new multidisciplinary research lines emerged the focus has expanded with bioinformatics, nanotechnology, robotics and artificial intelligence.
Now 33 research groups work in the Jedlik Laboratories and we started to reach the maximal capacity what our building can hold, showing how successfully the Faculty expanded. We are committed to preserve the human and scientific heritage of Prof. Roska and to actively develop the conditions of quality research at the Faculty.
