Coming Together: Bridging COVID-19 Interests and Perspectives - Sensing, Diagnostics, and Mitigation of Pandemics

Tuesday, June 9th, 2020 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

The Office of the Vice President for Research is hosting a three-part series on the resilience and response to pandemics and disruptions.  

Are you interested in improving long-term resilience and response to pandemics and disruptions using Covid-19 as the foundation? Do you want to learn about the diversity of campus perspectives exploring this problem and identify ways of connecting research activities more broadly? If so, join us for a three-part series highlighting multiple angles of inquiry in response to resilience and response to pandemics and disruptions.

This third session will focus on sensing, diagnostics, and migitation of pandemics based around the question, "hat new methods and techniques in biomedicine, artificial intelligence, telemedicine, sensing, tracing and detection are being developed and how might they be deployed?" Panelists include:

  • Telehealth: Emily Kroska (Assistant Professor, Psychological and Brain Sciences)
  • Artificial Intelligence: Milan Sonka (Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering)
  • Virus Detection: Matt Nonnenmann (Associate Professor, Occupational and Environmental Health)
  • CT Imaging: Joe Reinhardt (Professor, Biomedical Engineering)
  • Legal Barriers and Incentives to Innovation: Jason Rantanen (Professor, Law)
