GE is the world's Digital Industrial Company, transforming industry with software-defined machines and solutions that are connected, responsive and predictive. Through our people, leadership development, services, technology and scale, GE delivers better outcomes for global customers by speaking the language of industry. GE Global Research (GRC) is the central research arm for the GE company and is one of the oldest and most diverse industrial research labs. It performs strategic and longer-term R&D for all GE businesses, in addition to providing technology development and R&D support for new product introduction. It employs roughly 2,000 employees at two global locations in almost every scientific and engineering discipline.
GRC has played a central role in the growth and expansion of the Healthcare business through breakthrough innovation and critical technology development. From the invention of the first practical x-ray tube, the first 1.5T clinical MR scanner, the first digital x-ray imager and numerous inventions in MRI, CT and ultrasound to more recent programs in areas such as physiological monitoring, cell therapy technologies and molecular pathology, GRC has often laid the technology foundation for the growth of GE Healthcare. GRC also plays a central role in identifying adjacent spaces for business growth and often spearheads technology development in these spaces to establish a footprint for the business.
Personalization in healthcare has been identified as a key growth area for GE Healthcare (GEHC) and GRC is playing a key role in this regard. There are on-going, multi-disciplinary programs in digital and molecular pathology, tissue imaging, diagnostic imaging (MRI, CT, PET, Ultrasound), physiological monitoring (ECG, US, EEG, etc.) and informatics approaches to identify clinically relevant biomarkers. We at GE Global Research Center believe that AI has the ability to quickly and more accurately identify signs of disease in medical images, like MRI, CT scans, ultrasound, and x-rays, and therefore allow faster diagnostics and positively impact the patient outcomes. Our teams are leading the AI effort in advancing the care pathway, such as improving the organization of treatment plans, analyzing data to provide better treatment plans, and monitoring treatments. AI will play a central role in this initiative with breakthroughs resulting in image interpretations, identifying imaging biomarkers for many applications including tissue characterization, and analyzing physiological data for patient care solutions.
