2. Analyse/compare current molecular/genetic strategies that address these aging problems.
3. Analyse case studies about biotech companies in the aging sector. Apply the scientific methods to formulate basic research questions to address these problems.
4. Generate own hypotheses (educated guess/idea), design experiments to test them, and map out the next steps to translate them.
InhaltOverview of aging and age-related diseases. Key discoveries in molecular biology of aging. Case studies of biotech companies addressing age-related complications. Brief introduction from bench to bedside with focus on start-up companies.

Number of participants limited to 60
W4 KP3GC. Menon, C. Ahmadizadeh, M. Elgendi
KurzbeschreibungThis course focuses on the progress in the field of wearable and unobtrusive technologies for sports and health. Topics as monitoring heart health and blood pressure, biofeedback and improvement of motor skills and performance are covered. The focus lies on learning about the principles and design of the new generation of non-invasive technologies in fitness-, athletic and medical applications.
LernzielObjective 1:
Acquire knowledge about the latest technological advancements in wearable and unobtrusive technologies for sport and health.

Objective 2:
Acquire skills to design novel non-invasive technologies for sport and health.
InhaltThe course consists of three modules.

Module 1: The Heart.
This module focuses on the latest technologies for monitoring the cardiac cycle and blood pressure. The module starts by succinctly providing background information on cardiac physiology and then briefly introduces conventional technologies used in daily practice. This module subsequently focuses on the latest technologies (e.g., smartphone/camera-based methods, seismocardiography) and the latest data analysis techniques to monitor the cardiac cycle and blood pressure for assisting individuals in sport activities or monitoring their health conditions.

Module 2: The Mind.
This module investigates the latest advancements in wearable technologies for monitoring mental state, cognition and emotion and possibly assist individuals to improve their attention/cognition and to address related conditions (e.g., depression). The module initially provides a scientific background to the topic and then introduces the latest technological advancements in the field (e.g., in-ear electroencephalography, galvanic vestibular stimulation, textile-based breathing- and sweat sensing technologies). Students will be involved in a project to put into practice the knowledge and skills acquired during this module.

Module 3: Movement.
This module provides the needed scientific background to understand the principles that current technologies investigating movement rely on. The latest technological advancements to track parameters of gait and running, improve posture as well as to monitor overall body movement and provide feedback on motion during sport, rehabilitation or at work will be investigated. The focus will be on wearable-related (e.g., textile-based) technologies. In the last part of this module, representatives from industry and/or world-renowned scientists will present their views on the latest trends in academia and industry (e.g., self-powering wearable solutions).
