Presentation Title:

Wearable and Implantable Technology (WIT) with Biopharmaceutical Applications


Wearable and Implantable Technology (WIT) is rapidly changing the data analytic landscape due to their reduced bias and measurement error as well as to the sheer size and complexity of the recorded signals. In this talk I will review some of the most used and useful sensors in the ever-expanding WIT analytic environment and their potential impact on Biopharmaceutical research. I will describe the use of accelerometers, heart and glucose monitors, as well as their combination with ecological momentary assessment (EMA) for improved patient reported outcomes. Several case studies highlighting the application of WIT in clinical trials will be provided. I will introduce an array of scientific problems that can be answered using WIT and describe methods designed to analyze the WIT data from the micro- (sub-second-level) to the macro-scale (minute-, hour- or day-level) data. Based on a better understanding of the WIT data, I will show how the design of experiments can be improved for specific Biopharmaceutical interventions.
