Digital Biomarkers talk series


With mobile health apps, wearables and other sensors on the rise, so too is the potential of linking the data generated with health-related outcomes to develop Digital Biomarkers. Such biomarkers can and are providing new, powerful insights into disease monitoring and onset.

But what makes a useful Digital Biomarker? What considerations should be taken into account when developing a Digital Biomarker? What skillset do you need on your team? And how do you get a Digital Biomarker into use by people and clinicians?

Join us for our series on Digital Biomarkers where you will hear from AI Ethicists, Regulatory Specialists, Clinicians working with Digital Biomarkers and Digital Biomarker developers.

This series is open to all. It will be of special interest to early career researchers.
