During this class, you’ll learn three strategies to use your fear to your advantage, so you can become a professional powerhouse consistently, even when your situation is getting you down or making you nervous.

Research & Technology Forum @ CNY Biotech Accelerator, TED Theatre
Jan 25 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

‘Precision’ Medicine and Environments: 

Emerging Opportunities for Individualized Care and Comfort

Right from the start, many SyracuseCoE partners have pursued a vision for leveraging one of Central New York’s signature industry clusters to catalyze innovations in technologies for built environments that would improve occupant health and wellness. Synergistically, the Central New York Biotechnology Accelerator (CNY BAC) envisions building on regional strengths to advance innovations in “precision medicine,” which seeks to improve disease treatment and prevention by taking into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person.

SyracuseCoE and CNY BAC are very pleased to partner in offering a joint Research and Technology Forum that will explore emerging approaches at the interface of health care and environmental control. The Forum will include presentations by Dr. Robert Corona, SUNY Upstate Vice President for Innovation and Business Development, and Mike Wetzel, President and CEO of Air Innovations. The Forum discussion will be moderated by Prof. Ed Bogucz, Executive Director, SyracuseCoE.

Presenters:

Precision Diagnostics – The Key to Precision Medicine

Dr. Robert Corona, DO, MBA, FCAP, FASCP, John B, Henry and Chair of Pathology, Medical Director of Neuropathology/Pathology, Vice President for Innovation and Business Development, Central New York Biotech Accelerator, Upstate Medical University

Making sense of a lifetime of big data that each individual generates will allow us to better predict and prevent disease, personalize our health care, and engage each of us to participate in the management of our care.

Each individual generates billions of bits of information from conception, through fetal development, the birthing process and then throughout life until death. Newer technologies will be capturing new types of personal data that we may use to improve the quality of our lives. We produce physiologic data detected by our wearable sensors, laboratory data, imaging data, vital sign monitoring data, data from our genes and the proteins our body manufactures.

Can we build a learning health system that extracts data patterns from EMRs, gene sequencers, laboratory tests, medical imaging, social media, mobile health and e-health technologies? We will be able to forecast disease, predict outcomes and responses to therapies? The applications for actionable data are endless. This is the future of precision medicine.

Engineering Environments Beyond Comfort Cooling

Mike Wetzel, President and CEO, Air Innovations

Air Innovations has a long history of engineering environments to meet a wide variety of specific challenges. While many of our applications are for protecting sensitive processes or valuable goods, we are seeing more applications emerging related to human health and wellness. And access to individualized environmental control is just on the horizon.

Moderator:

Ed Bogucz, Executive Director, SyracuseCoE, Associate Professor, Syracuse University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

The R&T Forum Series is brought to you by Syracuse CoE Partner Program.

This event is being held at the CNY Biotech Accelerator in Syracuse, NY, There is free parking behind the building, with access at the light on the corner of E. Fayette and Irving Ave. Seating is limited. Register here.

TVGS Community Night
Jan 25 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Welcome to the Tech Valley Game Space Community Night! Updates from the community are encouraged! Volunteer for events at the TVGS and around the area to be a part of making them a reality for everyone. If you want to be in the know, and get involved, then this is the meeting to attend! If you have a project that you need help with, this is also the time to request any assistance from the community! The TVGS has a goal to help create local games, and there are multiple projects ongoing. Use your skills and help make games! Last month, we held our “shark tank” session, where anyone with a game idea was invited to present a five minute pitch. The pitches were then voted on by attendees, and a team of TVGS volunteers have been working together over the intervening month to develop the concept that received the most votes into a working prototype. Now that a full month has elapsed, the progress that was made on the winning project will be presented. The team will share their results at this meeting, and provide time for feedback and questions. Participants at this event will again have a chance to pitch a game idea, all for an opportunity to lead a group of TVGS volunteers in a team effort to develop that idea into a functional prototype over the month ahead. We do need to limit the total number of pitches for scheduling purposes. Therefore, if you wish to participate in the event, we ask that you please RSVP in advance using the registration form: goo.gl/forms/bffPovTE9jG58XLh2
