LOCATION

iHEALTH is headquartered at the Campus San Joaquin UC, Vicuña Mackenna 4860, Macul Santiago de Chile. Our main iHEALTH hub hosts an imaging research lab as well as offices for our scientists, collaborators, and staff. We also have access to the imaging and physiology sensors research labs at the Institute for Biological and Medical Engineering (IIBM) UC and the Center for Biomedical Imaging (CIB) UC, both located in the same campus.  

To bring together medical and scientific researchers and encourage translational research, iHEALTH also has a second hub at Casa Central UC where the university hospital is located. Furthermore, to encourage collaborations across the country and outside the capital, iHEALTH has a third hub at Universidad de Valparaíso which has the infrastructure to connect remotely with the facilities in Santiago.
