Dr. Shafiee’s lab strives to develop innovative diagnostic tools to address unmet clinical challenges through integrating biology/medicine, micro- and nanotechnology, consumer electronics, and artificial intelligence. His work has been recognized by some of the major news outlets including CNN, theguardian, Boston Globe, CBS News, STAT, New York Times, etc. He has mentored more than 70 postdoctoral research fellows, and undergraduate and graduate students.


Speech title & Synopsis

Connected Mobile Health Diagnostics for Personalized Medicine

The advances in micro- and nano-technologies and the surge in consumer electronics have paved a solid foundation for developing mobile health (mhealth) technologies with the potential to transform the current paradigm in global health. Dr. Shafiee’s laboratory strives to develop mHealth diagnostics and solve unmet medical problems through bioengineering approaches and utilizing the advances in consumer electronics such as cellphones, nanoscale/microscale materials, and computer programing particularly artificial intelligence (AI). mHealth technologies offer novel approaches to diagnose, track, and control diseases including infectious diseases, cancer, and infertility in both resource-rich and resource-poor settings. In this talk, Dr. Shafiee will present examples of how smartphones can be seamlessly integrated with hardware, software, microfluidics, and nanotechnology to develop point-of-care diagnostic devices to address clinical gaps in the management of infectious diseases and infertility.
