UArizona-Led Team To Develop Wearable Tech To Monitor Patient Health
BizTucson
C2SHIP recently received a continuing NSF grant of $3 million, with $1.125 million earmarked for UArizona. The multi-institution team led by University of Arizona electrical and computer engineering professor Dr. Janet Roveda, is building a future in which wearable devices will allow clinicians to gather patient data remotely and provide "care in place" so patients don't need to leave their homes. The team founded the Center to Stream Healthcare in Place, or C2SHIP, which was first selected as a National Science Foundation Industry-University Cooperative Research Center, or IUCRC, in 2018 and received $15,000 in startup funding.
