Transforming the face of research: Enabling anyone, anywhere, to contribute to biomedical research
Presented: December 15, 2021
Can a wrist-worn activity tracker detect early symptoms of COVID-19, or help a patient with Long COVID manage their symptoms? Can we use mobile apps to engage communities that have historically been underrepresented in biomedical research? These are all questions scientists at the Scripps Research Digital Trials Center seek to answer. In this Front Row lecture, Katie Baca-Motes, MBA, and Julia Moore Vogel, PhD, MBA, discuss the digital revolution that is taking place in clinical research. By designing clinical trials around the participant rather than the research clinic, scientists at Scripps Research are heralding a new era of diverse, participant-centric remote digital trials, powered by the smart technologies already in your pocket.
