Engineering has enabled a true revolution of how we approach health today, from telehealth to smart watches. Mizzou Engineering is ready to collaborate across disciplines to enable precision health. In this talk, Dr. Giovanna Guidoboni will share how engineers are analyzing and interpreting medical images, developing home sensors that monitor disease conditions, designing new biomaterials for novel treatments, and analyzing Big Data to connect the wide spectrum of information available for a single patient.
