About

The Center to Stream Healthcare In Place (C2SHIP) is part of the US National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) program (NSF #2052528, #2052514, #2052578, #2052827). 

OUR MISSION

The mission of the C2SHIP Center is to engage academic and industrial partners in joint efforts that develop healthcare technologies for in-place care and accelerate innovation through multi-specialty collaborations.

OUR STRATEGY

(1) emphasize fundamental investigations that provide an in-depth understanding of the core disciplines needed for personalized technology that promotes in-place care

(2) establish effective interactions with Center members to promote innovation capacity and accelerate technology transfer

(3) promote collaborations with other existing centers to create multi-center innovative technology for the involved core disciplines

OUR RESEARCH AREA

Design: wearable sensors/manufacturing

Data Mining: machine learning models to extract clinically meaningful information to promote in-place care

Cyber Security/Feedback: Methods to securely stream data from multiple sensors/devices and/or visualize results back to patients/care providers using multi-modal interfaces to promote in-place care

Broader Impact: Education and Societal Impact of in-place technologies

About I/UCRC Program

The Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers (IUCRC) Program was initiated in 1973 to develop long-term partnerships among industry, academe, and government. The National Science Foundation (NSF) invests in these partnerships to promote research programs of mutual interest, contribute to the nation's research infrastructure base, enhance the intellectual capacity of the engineering or science workforce through the integration of research and education, and facilitate technology transfer. more information
