Digital health technologies are poised to change the way we study health, develop therapies and treat diseases. In the fall of 2020, the University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UR CTSI) launched the Digital Health Seedling, a new one-year award of up to $25,000 for studies that use or develop digital health tools, methods or approaches such as electronic medical records, sensors and mobile technologies, real-world data, or social media. Learn more about how this grant is helping investigators study how to use wearable technologies to detect amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) earlier and to better understand the factors that contribute to stress among children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their parents/caregivers.
