New $10M NSF Research Center to Investigate Trustworthy Health and Wellness

Today the National Science Foundation announced a new $10 million research center led by Dartmouth College to investigate Trustworthy Health and Wellness ( THaW aims to enable the promise of health and wellness technology by innovating mobile- and cloud-computing systems that respect the privacy of individuals and the trustworthiness of medical information.

Within the University of Michigan's College of Engineering, our role focuses on scientific methods to study the extent of malware in hospital networks. Michigan is also the home of the Archimedes Center for Medical Device Security to help manufacturers improve medical device security.

More information can be found at NSF and the participating universities (Dartmouth College, University of Illinois, Johns Hopkins University, University of Michigan).
