About this research area

Research aims to develop new materials, instrumentation, communication and analysis approaches to detect and track physical and chemical indicators of health. Target measurands include biomarkers of chronic diseases (especially cardiovascular conditions and diabetes) and the measuring systems range from point of care desktop or handheld devices for on-demand detection to wearable and implantable sensors. Of particular interest are needs for low-cost technology intended for use in remote locations where access to facilities is limited. These goals are supported by the Center for Remote Health Technologies, a major grant from the National Science Foundation (PATHS-UP ERC), academic institutions (UCLA, Florida International University, Rice) and a number of information technology, health-focused entities and medical device companies.
