Systems and Technology for Medicine and IoT (STMI) Lab
The STMI lab (pronounced stem-ee) was formed to develop truly integrative end-to-end solutions of smart systems to improve patient care and patient lives. This involves a deep understanding of embedded systems design to develop data collection systems to monitor and empower users, advanced data mining and machine learning modeling to understand the complex, longitudinal data collected, and clinical outcomes research to understand the long-term trajectories and risks patients have for a variety of conditions. This unique blend of multi-disciplinary research provides challenges and opportunities through our partnerships that can provide solutions that drive tangible impact on the quality of life and quality of care.
At its core, these problems require understanding the theoretical properties of the platforms as well as the data. Developing new models to interpret and improve clinical understanding and motivating the collection of new data leads to challenges in systems design, power, communication, and user interface design. In isolation, each field might provide solutions that can be adapted to the others, but by focusing on the end-to-end aspect of our designs, we explore the creation of systems that bridge theoretical gaps in each field as well as the gaps in multi-disciplinary adoption of these technologies.
- New NSF Award! - Dr. Mortazavi has just been awarded a new $1.1 million National Science Foundation Smart and Connected Health award (as the lead PI) for studying the macronutrient compositions of meals, how they can be measured by continuous glucose monitors, and how models that account for multiple meals and exercise may automate diet.
- Accepted Paper: Findings of EMNLP - Our group has had our findings on Clinically Coherent Chest X-Ray Reports, have been accepted to the Findings of EMNLP Collection, with lead author Justin Lovelace
