Transdisciplinary Researchers

Breakthrough approaches to transforming health and healthcare call for diverse perspectives and expertise. The Consortium on Technology for Proactive Care draws on Northeastern University computer science, health sciences, and engineering faculty whose work and understanding extend across disciplines.

These researchers contribute to Northeastern’s emerging research strength in personalized health. Most are also instrumental to the development and implementation of Northeastern’s innovative PhD in Personal Health Informatics program, which prepares leaders in researching and developing technologies that enable individuals to monitor and improve their own health and wellness at all stages of life.
