Abstract: The absence of an automated healthcare stems from the current system's reliance on doctor visits and delayed test results. The long-term vision of my lab is to take steps towards making healthcare more automated. This involves establishing sensors that continuously monitor the health status of patients and advanced control algorithms that process this real-time data for triggering the drug delivery. The new advances reported in this talk, enrich the level of information that can be collected from different body fluids and introduce novel diagnostic/monitoring tools for diverse diseases, signifying the first steps towards a more automated healthcare.
