IMIT 2025

International Medical Innovation Technology 2025

University of California Irvine (UCI) and Tel Aviv University (TAU) are proud to initiate the 2nd UCI/TAU workshop that will be dedicated to Medical Innovation Technology.
The workshop mission is to present and discuss the issues involved in high education of engineers and scientists in the field of Medical innovation technology in 2025.

By 2025, the world’s population is projected to exceed 8 billion. More than 1 in 2 persons will live in urban areas, doubling the number of megacities with population over 20 million. The challenges in medicine will be greater than ever. The question is how medical technologies will evolve in the next 15 years to merge engineering innovation and scientific advances into clinical practices. This conference will discuss the challenges in closing the gap between clinical needs and available technologies.

This second international meeting will couple internationally renowned scientists from around the world with Israeli scientists, clinicians, industrialists and entrepreneurs to exchange expert insights on open issues related to the theme of the meeting, while exposing participants to state-of-the-art research in the field. The meeting will strengthen existing and enable new international partnerships on bi-national and multi-national research collaborations in healthcare technologies. Towards that end, the meeting will focus specifically on: Single-molecule Medical Technologies, Continuous Health Sensing and Monitoring, and Human-Machine Interface/Artificial Intelligence.
