Jamal Deen is co-leading the development of a Ubiquitous Healthcare Smart Medical Home. This project uses information technology, wireless communication, web-based technologies and autonomics to develop new, smart and cost-effective solutions for the health and wellness of older adults. These innovations are intended to help older adults lead independent lifestyles and to use in-home monitoring to detect early symptoms of diseases. Detecting these diseases can lead to early treatment. Jamal is the Senior Canada Research Chair in Information Technology and Director of the Micro-and Nano-Systems Lab.
