Emmanuel Dumont - Nanochemistry Delivers UV Sensors for Precision Medicine
The goal of precision medicine is to drive care and advice through a combination of individual genetic risk with actual environmental and behavioral data. Today, the rapidly expanding genomic dataset is not being matched by behavioral and environmental data. Emmanuel will share how their nanochemistry technology can uniquely analyze UV exposure. Their first product, Shade, is the first clinical-grade UV monitor designed to be a personal wearable device. With clinical trials underway and nearly 2 million UV measurements logged through all its users, the company's mission is to bring the first wearable measurement to be clinically-validated and clinically-helpful. Emmanuel has a PhD in Biophysics from Columbia University and a BS in Mathematics and Physics from Mines ParisTech.
