Key Note Speaker:
Jonathan M. Rothberg, Ph.D“Building the Future of Medical Technology”Human health is the new frontier of technological progress—the area where technology has the greatest potential to improve the human condition. Dr. Jonathan Rothberg, the inventor of next-generation DNA sequencing who was awarded the National Medal of Technology and Innovation by President Barack Obama, has spent his career leveraging advances in artificial intelligence, semiconductors, and cloud computing to usher in a new age of precision medicine. With his 4Catalyzer incubator, Dr. Rothberg is working at the intersection of healthcare and technology to build devices that save lives and make healthcare more accessible. Dr. Rothberg will discuss his vision on where medical technology is headed in the decades to come, and how his companies are working to build that future.
Brian Litt, MD and the Neuroscience School of Advanced Studies (NSAS) will be hosting a 5-day workshop ‘Epilepsy: Advanced Technology for Clinicians’ on the Island of San Servolo in Venice, Italy from October 5-10, 2018.
In this workshop, world clinician-experts in engineering, neuroscience and clinical neurology present the latest tools for state-of-the-art epilepsy care and present cases to demonstrate their use. By the end of the workshop attendees will learn how to apply: (1) the newest imaging and electrophysiology techniques to map brain structure and function, (2) novel tools to link imaging with intracranial electrodes, (3) new surgical techniques for focal therapy including laser, radiofrequency ablation and focused ultrasound, and (4) the newest implantable antiepileptic devices.
