Brief bios of keynote speakers:
Charlene Quinn (UMD): Dr. Charlene Quinn, RN, PhD, is an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland Medical School, Department of Epidemiology and Public Health. Dr. Quinn is an experienced geriatric clinician and health services researcher, with training from Duke University, University of Maryland, and Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health. A former White House Fellow and senior Federal executive she has extensive government, business and research experience in health services policy, gerontology and health delivery technologies. The focus of her funded research is the development of new approaches to the treatment of chronic diseases and conditions common among aging adults, including dementia, depression and diabetes. Dr. Quinn’s research experience enables her to study these conditions implementing clinical trials, employing epidemiologic methods to analyze large data sets, and applying health services research methods to federal and private insurance claims data to study service utilization and costs. In recent years, she has focused her research and clinical trial work on the development and use of mobile health to enhance the management of diabetes, working closely with NIH, the VA, insurers and the private sector. Dr. Quinn’s research team recently reported one of the first randomized clinical trials of mobile (phone) diabetes management for persons with Type 2 diabetes treated by community providers, improving HbA1c by 1.9% over a one year treatment period. New studies are underway to determine: the impact of mobile device interventions on patient self-care behaviors, the role of patient-provider communication messages and engagement and the impact of mobile communication on provider treatment.

Aydogan Ozcan (UCLA): Dr. Aydogan Ozcan received his Ph.D. degree at Stanford University Electrical Engineering Department in 2005. After a short post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford University, he is appointed as a Research Faculty Member at Harvard Medical School, Wellman Center for Photomedicine in 2006. Dr. Ozcan joined UCLA in the summer of 2007, where he is currently an Associate Professor leading the Bio- Photonics Laboratory at the Electrical Engineering and Bioengineering Departments. Dr. Ozcan holds 17 issued patents and another 12 pending patent applications for his inventions in nanoscopy, wide-field imaging, lensless imaging, nonlinear optics, fiber optics, and optical coherence tomography. Dr. Ozcan is also the author of one book and the co-author of more than 200 peer reviewed research articles in major scientific journals and conferences. In addition, Dr. Ozcan is the Founder and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Microskia Inc., and is a member of the program committee of SPIE Photonics West Conference, SPIE International Symposium on Defense, Security and Sensing, as well as the IEEE Photonics Society Annual Meeting. He also serves as a panelist and a reviewer for National Science Foundation, NIH and for Harvard-MIT Innovative Technology for Medicine Program. Prof. Ozcan also served as the General co-Chair of 2010 IEEE Winter Topical Meeting on Advanced Imaging in BioPhotonics. Prof. Ozcan received several major awards including the 2011 SPIE Early Career Achievement Award, 2011 Army Research Office (ARO) Young Investigator Award, 2010 NSF CAREER Award, the 2009 NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, the 2009 Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator Award, the 2009 IEEE Photonics Society (LEOS) Young Investigator Award and the MIT’s Technology Review TR35 Award for his seminal contributions to near-field and on-chip imaging, and telemedicine based diagnostics. Prof. Ozcan is also the recipient of the 2010 National Geographic Emerging Explorer Award, the 2010 Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Grand Challenges Award, the 2010 Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award, the 2010 Netexplorateur Award given by the Netexplorateur Observatory and Forum in France, the 2010 PopTech Science and Public Leaders Fellowship, the 2010 USC’s Body Computing Slam Prize, and the 2009 Wireless Innovation Award organized by the Vodafone Americas Foundation as well as the 2008 Okawa Foundation Award, given by the Okawa Foundation in Japan. Prof. Ozcan was also selected as one of the top 10 innovators by the U.S. Department of State, USAID, NASA, and NIKE as part of the LAUNCH: Health Forum organized in October 2010. Dr. Ozcan is a Senior Member of IEEE and SPIE, and a member of LEOS, EMBS, OSA, and BMES.

The workshop will provide a forum for researchers with expertise in mobile systems, sensor systems, and medical informatics to push the state of the art of research at the intersection of mobile systems, sensor systems, and healthcare.

Look forward to seeing you at mHealthSys in Seattle!
