For the first time, EMBS is hosting the National Science Foundation (NSF) at EMBC 2016 for a series of events that will promote advanced research, and foster education and professional development in Smart and Connected Health.
This conference will focus on healthcare innovations and point-of-care technologies, and their clinical translation to address challenges in global quality healthcare. The proposed conference will provide an international forum with clinicians, healthcare providers, industry experts, innovators, researchers and students to define clinical needs and technology solutions towards commercialization and translation to clinical applications across different environments and infrastructures.
Late Robin Sidhu, a young ebullient science driven and information technology (IT) savvy person, died of an accident at an early age. His mission to accomplish indepth understanding of human mind and health remained incomplete due to his early departure but his legacy will remain through supporting young innovative minds in science through this young investigator award.
Michael Neuman was a friend and mentor to many, an accomplished researcher and academic as well as a dedicated and tireless member of EMBS for many decades. He will be remembered by those whose lives he touched for his intellect, leadership, guidance, grace, and good humor.
