Posted April 15, 2014

BIOSENSORS AND ANALYTICS CONFERENCE SET FOR APRIL 23 AND 24 AT LCCC

Michael F. Roizen, M.D., chief wellness officer and chair of the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic will be the keynote speaker at the 2014 Biosensors and Analytics Conference, set for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, April 23 and 24 at Lorain County Community College’s Spitzer Conference Center.

Roizen will present the keynote at 8 a.m., Thursday, April 24. Roizen has founded or co-founded 12 companies, co-invented a drug and wrote four number one NY Times bestsellers. He is the co-founder of RealAge, Inc., and has published more than 170 peer-reviewed scientific papers, 100 chapters, 30 editorials, and four medical books, and received 13 U.S. patents. He is boarded in Internal Medicine and Anesthesiology.

In the coming years biomedical research will accelerate at a rate far exceeding the rates of the past few decades. People will start to be individually distinguished with great accuracy through personal requirements as it relates to medications, devices, the environment in which they live, and other factors. This personal treatment will become possible because of the technology being developed that will enable huge data sets on large populations to be analyzed.

This conference will bring together experts to discuss the medicine of the future and the key enablers of new medical products. The integration of MEMS sensors will be accelerated by recently developed infrastructure, such as wireless connectivity, multi-functional systems on a chip, data analytics, and creative packaging.  A clinical perspective will be presented identifying actual needs that will subsequently drive the concepts for new products. Connecting the end-user view with the possibilities presented by new technologies will provide the insights needed to overcome the barriers commonly associated with launching disruptive medical products.

Conference topics include: Health and Fitness – Perspective on Wellness; Home Health Care – Extended Patient Care; Metabolic Syndrome – Advancements in Disease Management; and Sensors for Hospitals – Improvement for Patient Care.

Cost for the two-day conference is $395. Special rates apply for college students.
