The Duke MEDx Initiative was created to enhance existing ties and foster new interdisciplinary collaborations between the School of Medicine and the Pratt School of Engineering. MEDx fosters the exchange of ideas and creates research opportunities between physicians, engineers, computer scientists, researchers and innovators. It also promotes the training of the next generation of researchers and clinicians to work symbiotically on new solutions to complex clinical problems, and develops strategic commercialization opportunities to translate research advances into effective devices, therapeutics and care delivery systems.
The MEDx Distinguished Lecture is an annual seminar that highlights icons in the fields of medicine and engineering who have had a positive impact on human health. This year’s event will feature the first female Distinguished Lecturer, Dr. Rosalind Picard – a pioneer in affective computing and wearables whose work is recognized around the globe. Dr. Picard will give a talk titled, “How can wearable technologies advance our understanding of the brain, health and stress?”
Zoom information will be provided upon registration.
