IoT in Health

Apple, QUALCOMM, FDA, Porsche


Internet of things (IOT) has the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry. Thus far, most IOT applications focus on improving monitoring and physiological sensing of healthcare and patient care; however, the next generation of healthcare technologies will focus on multiplexed points of care testing, diagnostics, and treatment. The goal of this course is to engage students to explore the next generation IOT and lab-on-a-chip devices that can be integrated into a variety of service locations such as autonomous cars, hospitals, offices, and homes.

Issues Involved or Addressed

Design and fabrication of the next generation of IOT from a lab on a chip, stem cell technologies for gene therapy, IOT technologies integrated with autonomous cars for physiological sensing, multiplexed point of care testing, performance testing, lifetime and stability testing, and the integration of next-gen medical devices will be research topics.
