Our mission is to foster human-technology teamwork in healthcare by taking a people-centered approach to health’s greatest challenges. We work with global stakeholders, from village innovators, community volunteers and patient advocates to researchers, clinicians, government and industry. Together we aim to solve the “wicked” health problems that require not just singular scientific advances but innovation in multidisciplinary and distributed teamwork.
Our work is guided by the following principles:
The Design Lab is located within the California Institute of Telecommunication and Information Technology, which gives us freedom to move seamlessly across all the departments, schools, and divisions of the university. Our advisory board includes people from Management, Engineering, Visual Arts, Theater, and the Social Sciences.”
