Harnessing power of mobile phones and big data for global health

submitted by Marvin's Underground Evening Lectures on 10/10/18 1

Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award and Lecture by Professor Rachel McKendry. In outbreaks of infectious disease we rely on early detection and accurate diagnostics. However, worldwide many infections remain undiagnosed and untreated due to poor diagnostics at the point of care leading to ongoing transmission of serious infections and delays in the identification of emerging threats with major human and economic consequences. The widespread use of mobile phones could dramatically increase access to testing outside of hospital settings, particularly in developing countries. In this lecture, Professor Rachel McKendry presents her research to create a new generation of mobile phone connected diagnostic tests for infectious diseases. This research lies at the cutting edge of infectious diseases, nanotechnology, telecommunications, big data and public health. Harnessing the power of mobile phones and big data for global health 6:30 pm — 7:30 pm on Thursday 06 November 2014 at The Royal Society, London. royalsociety.org/events/2014/11/rosalind-franklin-lecture/
