Big boost to R-1 effort and overall Tiger everything rep
Details on NIH grant. It will open doors for millions more in grants and investment $.

Open access article from MBJ

The University of Memphis is leading the way on a new high-tech biomedical resource center that will include research from Harvard, Georgia Tech, UCLA, and other universities.

The U of M announced July 16 that it received a $5.9 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to establish the mHealth Center for Discovery, Optimization & Translation of Temporally Precise Interventions (mDOT).

The U of M will lead the mDOT Center, which will be headquartered at the MD2K Center of Excellence in the U of M’s FedEx Institute of Technology.

Dr. Santosh Kumar will be the lead investigator for the mDOT Center. He is the director of the MD2K Center and a computer science professor at the U of M.

The MD2K Center was established by an NIH grant in 2014. MD2K stands for mobile sensor data-to-knowledge. The mDOT Center at MD2K is classified as a national biomedical technology resource center (BTRC).

“The mDOT Center will be the first BTRC focused on developing innovative mHealth technologies,” Tiffani Lash, mDOT’s program officer and director of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering program in Connected Health, said in a release. “It is positioned to empower scientists to discover, personalize, and deliver temporally precise mHealth interventions.
The NIH grant will support mobile health research at:

University of Memphis
Harvard University
Georgia Institute of Technology
Ohio State University
University of Massachusetts-Amherst
University of California at Los Angeles
University of California at San Francisco

The mDOT project team will include researchers in multidisciplinary areas, including artificial intelligence (AI), mobile computing, wearable sensors, privacy, and precision medicine.

Research will key in on chronic diseases and how mobile health technology can improve health and wellness. The mDOT Center’s researchers will conduct AI research to produce wearables and associated apps, and a companion cloud system — giving patients daily feedback and guidance to manage chronic health conditions.


In addition, the mDOT project team will work with more than a dozen other federally funded projects on joint technology development, testing, and large-scale real-life deployment.

“Researchers and industry innovators can leverage mDOT’s technological resources to create the next generation of mHealth technology that is highly personalized to each user, transforming people’s health and wellness,” Kumar said in a release.

Seems to be a trend in medicine to find ways to monitor those with illnesses in order to help them better monitor their illnesses and to remind then to take their medications. I guess there is a lot more research to be done in this area. One company that is leading the way is LIVONGO, a company that went public and has been a hot stock lately.

I won’t pretend to know what mHealth Center for Discovery, Optimization & Translation of Temporally Precise Interventions actually means. But the Umof M being the lead recipient and the company they are keeping as partners is high level.

Nice news and got some AAU schools in the mix. Not sure if it will, but hopefully that gives an extra boost to UM's reputation on top of what the article is saying.

With the medical facilities in this city there is no reason the U of M should not be a top medical research university.

Change UT Medical School to U of M Medical School and tnen form an alliance with St. Judes and seems like that could be something worth investigating. When the BLM is no longer an issue....put a St. Jude's decal on the football helmets.

Too political.

All children matter, not just the terminally ill ones.

Is St. Jude also a front for a Marxist organization? I’ve really gotta start reading more organization’s websites before I blindly support them.

All Children won’t matter until terminally ill children matter. See how stupid that sounds?

Not helpful on several levels.
