Our research focuses on how the health of individuals, families, communities, social networks, and populations can be improved through the creative use of wireless and networked technologies and ubiquitous computing. We also study how to promote health and prevent disease and disability through systems-level interventions in clinical and community settings.
Our collaborators come from the UCSD School of Medicine, UCSD’s Division of Social Sciences, the Jacobs School of Engineering, the San Diego Supercomputer Center and San Diego State University. Included are scientists with backgrounds in clinical and preventive medicine, computer science and engineering, social networks, political science, clinical and experimental psychology, electrical engineering, health behavior, systems science, behavioral genetics, exercise and nutrition science, public health, and evolutionary biology.
Center research is supported through public and private sources, including the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Science Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the American Cancer Society, and Nokia Research.
