Thank you to everyone who participated in today's Department of Medicine/Whiting School of Engineering Research Retreat. Our second annual collaboration with engineering proved to be another great success. We would also like to thank Keynote Speaker Dr. Leroy Hood, MD, PhD for an enthralling talk on How Technology, Big Data and Systems Approaches are Transforming 21st Century Healthcare. To watch his presentation along with opening remarks by Drs. Mark Anderson from the DOM and Ed Schlesinger from the WSE, click the link below.
