Future applications of mobile health will also be presented including the relation to the new NIH Precision Medicine initiative.

Ryan J. Shaw, PhD, RN is an Assistant Professor at Duke University. His research seeks to discover how to improve health outcomes and care delivery in patients with chronic illness through the use of mobile health and sensing technologies. He is an NIH funded investigator and leads several ongoing clinical trials which use a variety of wearable and environmental sensors to learn how to deliver real-time care to patients. He also co-leads the Medicine+Engineering “MEDx” Mobile & Wireless Technology Colloquia. The colloquia provides a forum that brings together faculty staff, and students across the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Engineering, and Arts and Sciences to develop an interdisciplinary community on the use of mobile and wireless technologies for health.

His primary academic appointment is at the Duke University School of Nursing and he has a secondary appointment in the Center for Applied Genomics & Precision Medicine at the Duke University School of Medicine.
