As the knowledge base in disease diagnosis and treatment grows, we are noticing a clear trend: the vital importance of prevention. In this webinar, Michele Lee and Andrea Armani from the University of Southern California will discuss how wearable health monitoring technology enables the personalized recommendations needed for effective cancer prevention to be met.

What You Will Learn

  • Strengths and weaknesses of current wearable health monitoring technology
  • How trigger-responsive or "smart" polymeric materials enable power-free sensors
  • How the kinetics of photodegradation is used in UV sensing
