DBEI & CCEB Research Day Features Cutting-Edge Mobile Health Innovations Talk

Can our constant habit of checking our smartphones help to transform cardiovascular research? Using the MyHeart Counts app, Michael V. McConnell, MD, MSEE, and his team enrolled more than 47,000 participants within six months to capture real-time measurement of their physical activity. Please join us as we hear a special lecture by Dr. McConnell and showcase the highlights of our work on April 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Smilow Center for Translational Research, 3400 Civic Center Blvd. Our Research Day is a joint project of the DBEI and the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

About Us

To understand health and disease today, we need new thinking and novel science —the kind  we create when multiple disciplines work together from the ground up. That is why this department has put forward a bold vision in population-health science: a single academic home for biostatistics, epidemiology and informatics. MORE
