The mDOT Center

Transforming health and wellness via temporally-precise mHealth interventions

Envisioned as a national hub, the mDOT Center’s Training and Dissemination (TT&D) core (Dr. Vivek Shetty and Dr. Minjeong Jeon) focuses on informing the scientific community about its developed tools and processes. The TT&D core builds the national capacity of trained researchers and facilitates the widespread distribution and optimized use of these technologies. Here’s a glimpse into recent achievements and opportunities for collaboration:


mHealth Dissemination Platform: The center undertook a major upgrade to its mHealthHUB platform, the primary resource for mHealth training and information dissemination. The redesign streamlined webinar execution with a dedicated platform for real-time interaction, live discussions, and multimedia sharing. Improved navigation and search functionalities enhance user experience and access to relevant information. The upgraded platform offers 43 recorded and curated mDOT webinars for on-demand learning, alongside 120 recorded lectures and talks, creating a central hub for all training content. Analytics track user engagement to continuously improve content delivery. This upgrade allows visitors to stay current with the latest mHealth advancements through user-friendly and efficient access to training materials and discussions.


Empowering Innovation – The mHealthHUB’s Digital Toolbox: The mHealthHUB’s core strength is its Digital Toolbox. This curated repository houses cutting-edge technologies and datasets specifically chosen for mHealth researchers. These open-source tools empower researchers with the resources they need to drive innovation and advance the field of mHealth.


mHealth Training Institute (mHTI): The 2023 program, offered in a hybrid format to maximize accessibility, ran from April 10 to July 20, 2023. Thirty exceptional scholars were selected from a highly competitive applicant pool. These scholars participated in a rigorous training program designed to equip them with the latest advancements in mHealth research. The program emphasized a team-science approach and fostered collaboration among scholars from diverse backgrounds. Feedback from participants indicated a very high level of satisfaction with the educational experience.


mDOT webinars: In addition to its core training programs, the mDOT Center offered a webinar series featuring leading international experts who discussed the latest advancements in mHealth. 


mHTI Study Reveals Strong Collaboration Among Scholars: New research published in the prestigious Journal of Clinical and Translational Science explores collaboration patterns within the mHealth Training Institute (mHTI) program. Led by Dr. Minjeong Jeon, the study employed a longitudinal social network analysis of data from the 2017-2019 mHTI cohorts. This innovative approach shed light on how mHTI fosters interdisciplinary connections and collaboration among participating scholars.
