The existing model of health care in the United States must change. Personalized medicine offers the opportunity to improve quality by increasing both the affordability and precision of health care. We will need to create an integrated system of devices capable of non-invasively monitoring health-related data from individuals as they go about their daily lives. We see important implications for national and global health competitiveness through technological development. A few examples are:
The University of Rochester has ongoing research programs in the above areas conducted primarily under the auspices of two centers.
Partnerships and Collaborations:
The Center for Future Health has long-established working relationships with both major international corporations (Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Bayer, Samsung) and local firms (Impact Technologies, Xelic, KEK Associates, STI Technologies).
Investigators in The Laboratory for Assisted Cognition Environments have been supported by the National Science Foundation, National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Intel, and Microsoft.
