Date & Time
Wednesday, March 1, 2017 from 5:00-7:00 PM.
Join us from 5:00-5:30 PM for a half hour of refreshments and conversation. Our speaker will begin at 5:30 PM.
Todd P. Coleman received B.S. degrees in electrical engineering (summa cum laude), as well as computer engineering (summa cum laude) from the University of Michigan. He received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from MIT in electrical engineering,and did postdoctoral studies at MIT in neuroscience. He is currently an Associate Professor in Bioengineering at UCSD, where he directs the Neural Interaction Laboratory. Dr. Coleman’s research has been featured on CNN, BBC, and the New York Times. In 2015, Dr. Coleman was selected as a National Academy of Engineering Gilbreth Lecturer and a TEDMED speaker.
Dr. Camille Nebeker is an Assistant Professor in the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Nebeker is affiliated with the Divisions of Behavioral Medicine and Global Health in the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health. She also holds an adjunct faculty appointment with the San Diego State University Graduate School of Public Health and is an affiliated investigator with the UC San Diego Research Ethics Program. Dr. Nebeker’s research focuses on the design of research/bioethics educational initiatives designed for traditional and non-traditional learners with a goal of trainee’s understanding and appreciation of factors that influence the ethical and responsible conduct of research. Project BRIC (Building Research Integrity and Capacity), for example, has developed research ethics education for community members who have little/no formal academic research training yet, assist academic researchers to implement community- and clinic-based health research. Dr. Nebeker is also exploring the ethical dimensions of biomedical research (i.e., informed consent, risk assessment, data management) that leverages emerging technologies to collect personal health data (PHD). Dr. Nebeker is project director/principal investigator for the Connected and Open Research Ethics (CORE) initiative supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the UC San Diego Chancellor’s Interdisciplinary Collaboratory Fellowship program and Project BRIC, which is supported by the federal Office of Research Integrity (ORI). Dr. Nebeker’s research has received continuous support from intra/extramural sources since 2002.
The Interplay between Data Science, Technology, and Medicine
Dr. Coleman will review his group’s multi-disciplinary efforts to develop non-invasive tools to monitor health status. He will discuss novel ways of interpreting the collected data for prediction, diagnosis, and prevention of disease, with a particular focus on chronic disease management and healthy aging, as well as the ethics of data collection, privacy, and assessment methods.
There are free lots available behind the Fleet Science Center near the entrance to the Community Forum.
