Imagine if disease, and its onset, could be identified by a simple cheek swap, in place of costly, often lengthy - and sometimes painful - MRIs, biopsies, CAT scans, X rays, and other diagnosis methods. Far fetched, right? Well, maybe not...researchers at Rice University's McDevitt Research Laboratory are aggressively moving toward that as a goal by leveraging new ways to harness the power of collaborative research and clinical trial data collection quickly, accurately and intuitively...all with a new system design by Dr. Pierre N. Floriano, Director of Microfluidics, Image and Data Analysis, at the BioScience Research Collaborative at Rice University....and you can hear about this directly from the Dr. Floriano at the upcoming IBM Exceptional Web Experience Conference.
It's no coincidence that the word "collaborative" is part of the mission of the research team; they recognize that teaming, sharing and communicating are key to unlocking and interpreting the data from clinical trials and research from distributed sources. So, here's what they are building, and will detail, in a session at the upcoming conference:
If you are attending the conference, you can learn more about how this exceptional web experience can play small part in the much bigger endeavor of these dedicated researchers - and endeavor to help make disease detection almost routine, and certainly more cost-effective, but most importantly to help people enjoy an "exceptional life experience"!
The session is scheduled for Tuesday, May 17, at 9:45A.
