Rapidly developing research in personalized medicine promises to revolutionize traditional medical practices.
Wearable devices that can monitor health and treat disease represent one area of tremendous opportunity. In this talk, Wei Gao, assistant professor of medical engineering, Heritage Medical Research Institute Investigator, and Ronald and JoAnne Willens Scholar, will share his work on wearable biosensors that analyze human sweat to measure metabolites, nutrients, hormones, proteins, and medication levels. He will also describe research progress that is helping to make these sensors affordable and battery free and explain how wearable technologies may propel new advances in precision nutrition, stress and mental health assessment, and chronic disease management.
