2020 SENSE.nano Symposium image

The 2021 SENSE.nano symposium focused on human subjects research, exploring how sensors and sensing systems can enable current medical studies and future clinical practice. SENSE.nano 2021 also celebrated the re-opening of the expanded Clinical Research Center (CRC) at MIT, now known as MIT's Center for Clinical and Translational Research.

Broken into two half-day webinars, SENSE.nano 2021 investigated human health through various technologies including motion capture, physiological monitoring, and sensing tools for the study of bodily fluids. Over a series of invited technical talks, panel discussions, presentations by MIT-launched startups, and views into MIT research today with current graduate students, this event provided needs context and solution perspectives in the domains of sensing for medical engineering and science, and for the care of humans in their environment.

IMMERSED: A seminar series by the MIT.nano Immersion Lab

The IMMERSED seminar series is an exploration into how immersive technology and new modalities for manipulating and understanding data are shaping innovations across science, engineering, and art. These events—a mixture of lectures, demonstrations, and tutorials—offer a deep dive into a capability or set of capabilities at the MIT.nano Immersion Lab and how they can be applied to various fields. These seminars and the technology demonstrated are often related to sensors and sensing, including motion capture technology that tracks your location in space and wireless sensors that chart physiological measurements.

Augmenting our natural senses

What could you do if you had 7 senses? 10 senses? More? What would you do with all of that information? How big would your brain need to be? How would you communicate what you feel?
