The UW Innovation Research Award supports unusually creative early and mid-career faculty in engineering, health, natural and social sciences.
The Provost has just announced an award to team of six investigators: Shwetak Patel and James Fogarty (Computer Science & Engineering); Julie Kientz and Sean Munson (Human-Centered Design & Engineering; both are also Adjunct faculty in CSE); Jasmine Zia (UW Medicine’s Division of Gastroenterology); and Roger Vilardaga (Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences). They are building tools used on a mobile device that allow patients to easily enter data about habits and behaviors related to a particular health problem. These data will help extend the reach of health care beyond the clinic, making it easier for physicians to make diagnoses and treatment plans.
