MEDx Duke Wireless & Mobile Technology: Lightning Talks & Teambuilding

We invite you to attend the MEDx Mobile & Wireless Technology “Lightning Talks and Team Building” meeting on Tuesday March 15th from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.


Please visit this link for more information and registration. Refreshments will be served.


Location: Schiciano Auditorium, Fitzpatrick Building (aka FCIEMAS) following the 2016 Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics Symposium


Engineers will present tools and inventions that can be leveraged for health discovery and health researchers will present clinical needs that engineering may be able to meet. Those who are interested in pairing with a presenter or learning about additional inventions and clinical needs can discuss next steps. We will have RFAs/RFPs from government and foundation sources for review.


Presenters from Engineering:

  • Tuan Vo-Dinh, PhD, Director, Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics – Wearable smart sensors and implantable biosensors
  • Peter Hollender, PhD, Engineering – Portable ultrasound devices for measuring tissue elasticity


Presenters from Duke Health:

  • David Bartlett, PhD, Duke Health – Clinic needs for detection and monitoring disease risk for immune-inflammatory conditions and chronic illness
  • Dori Steinberg, PhD, RD, Duke Digital Health – Sensors needed that objectively measure health behaviors such as diet, weight, movement, and risky behaviors that are portable and easy for patients to use on a daily basis


This event will coincide with the 2016 Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics Symposium and will be held as a Post-Symposium Workshop. All are welcome!
