Imagine a world in which we can predict virus outbreak ahead of time — allowing us to stop the spread earlier and possibly save lives.
Now imagine that you can be a part of this potentially lifesaving work, simply by participating in a health research study. Thanks to DETECT, you can! An innovative study being conducted by Scripps Research, one of the world’s premier academic research institutions, DETECT is connecting you with the brightest minds in biomedical science to find answers to complicated questions, like those that have arisen out of the COVID-19 pandemic. Researchers like Jennifer Radin, PhD, an epidemiologist who specializes in the use of technology to improve infectious disease prediction.
About this groundbreaking research study, Dr. Radin says, “Sensor-based surveillance can offer a way to continuously track individuals when they are healthy and characterize their typical baseline and typical variation. When someone gets sick with a virus, we can identify early subtle changes compared to their baseline, rather than population averages, that may indicate viral illness outset.”
Join Dr. Radin and the DETECT study team in this impactful research study and make a difference in the future of disease detection.
