Can the phone in your pocket or the genes in your DNA lead to a health and healthcare experience that is affordable, accurate, and tailored just for you? Research and innovation in the technology spaces is powering a transformation of how we respond to everything from infectious disease outbreaks to keeping aging populations healthy; healthcare is one of the biggest growth sectors in the global economy. Fit-for-purpose policies and regulations will also be needed, to keep up with new ethical and safety questions that naturally emerge with new, and converging, technologies that personally impact our health and wellbeing.
On September 28, we hosted a 'Tech for Thought: A KnowledgeTransfer series' workshop, titled Digital Technologies and Precision Health, with Genya V. Dana and Vijay Chandru. This event is organized in partnership with Plaksha University (based in Mohali).
