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

Big Data, Diagnostic Devices and Bioelectric Interfaces in Medicine
Tuesday, April 18, 2017 (All day)
Li Ka Shing Conference Center, Stanford University
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
