2017 Headlights Workshop on Big Data, Diagnostic Devices and Bioelectric Interfaces in Medicine

Topic: 
Big Data, Diagnostic Devices and Bioelectric Interfaces in Medicine
Tuesday, April 18, 2017 (All day)
Venue: 
Li Ka Shing Conference Center, Stanford University
Speaker: 
Various
Abstract / Description: 

There have never been greater opportunities for traditional engineering disciplines to contribute to the medical practices.  Jumping the chasm from the lab to a medical product, and then jumping again into an established clinical practice does not happen easily or often.    This workshop examined three promising areas of opportunity for this to happen in.

  • Harvesting and analyzing individual and collective health data to bring about better medical outcomes
  • Advances in diagnostic techniques and their supporting medical devices
  • Turning to the electrical control pathways in our body
