UCLA Center for SMART Health

UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine and Henry Samueli School of Engineering have teamed up to revolutionize the use of healthcare technology at their Center for Systematic, Measurable, Actionable, Resilient, and Technology-driven Health (Center for SMART Health). The collaboration between computer scientists, engineers, clinicians and researchers will work on new health care technology that will make use of current innovations like wearable technology and big data analysis. The center is lead by Majid Sarrafzadeh, a distinguished professor of computer science and electrical engineering at UCLA Engineering, and Dr. Arash Naeim, an associate professor of medicine and the Geffen School’s chief medical officer for clinical research.
