Join us at the NIH’s Mobile & Personal Technologies in Precision Medicine Workshop, 27-28 July 2015

NIH Precision Medicine Initiative

The Precision Medicine Initiative Working Group of the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director is hosting a public workshop at Intel’s HQ Campus in Santa Clara (it’s free to join the event on Livestream here) to discuss the scientific, methodological and practical considerations to inform the incorporation of mobile and personal technologies in the national research cohort of one million or more volunteers.

Key agenda discussions will include:

Potential benefits and barriers of employing mobile technologies in a large cohort study using the experiences of current smaller cohort studies that have incorporated these technologies. What is the desired functionality for a national research cohort mobile health app that would facilitate participant engagement and retention? What are some examples of the status of mobile technologies to measure a wide range of PMI cohort relevant variables (e.g. physiological, behavioral, and environmental)? What are the social and technical challenges that will be faced in using these technologies in a large cohort (including sampling bias/diversity, privacy/security, feasibility/validity, and data management/integration)? What are some practical uses of mobile technologies based on relevant national research cohort use cases? What are examples where the cohort might be used as a test bed for new and emerging technologies that will advance precision medicine?
