The mDOT Center currently works with eight collaborative projects. The goal of the mDOT Center is to create a new capability for researchers so they can discover, optimize, and deploy temporally precise mHealth interventions in real-life. Such interventions will be individualized to the moment-to-moment biopsychosocial-environmental context of each individual to directly prevent, manage or treat medical conditions. Our three TR&D’s are conducting research and developing mHealth technology to address this vision, but they can succeed only by working with real-life data and by addressing real-life health research problems.
Our TR&D’s will work with a diverse group of external investigators, who are collecting data and investigating specific health issues using mHealth. This will ensure that the technologies developed by our TR&D’s can solve real problems facing the health research community and ensure the usability of these technologies by investigators who are external to the mDOT investigating team, representing the broader health research community.
