2020 SENSE.nano Symposium image

The 2021 SENSE.nano symposium will focus on human subjects research, exploring how sensors and sensing systems can enable current medical studies and future clinical practice. SENSE.nano 2021 will also serve to help celebrate the re-opening of the expanded Clinical Research Center (CRC) at MIT.

Broken into two half-day webinars, SENSE.nano 2021 will investigate 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 will provide needs context and solution perspectives in the domains of sensing for medical engineering and science, and for the care of humans in their environment.

Save the dates! October 25 & 26, 2021

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.
