The closing ceremonies of the Computational Sensing and Medical Robotics (CSMR) REU are set to take place Friday, August 6 from 9am until 3pm at this Zoom link. Seventeen undergraduate students from across the country are eager to share the culmination of their work for the past 10 weeks this summer.
The schedule for the day is listed below, but each presentation is featured in more detail in the program. Please invite your students and faculty, and feel free to distribute this flyer to advertise the event.
We would love for everyone to come learn about the amazing summer research these students have been conducting!

Title: Engineering Innovations to Change Aging: A Geriatrician’s Attempt at Standing Circuits.
Abstract: The population of older adults with chronic illnesses and functional and cognitive decline is rapidly expanding in the US and worldwide. In parallel, there has been a rapid emergence of new uses for artificial intelligence (AI) and technology in health care driven by developments in sensors, computing at macro and micro scales, communication networks, and progress in deep learning and other reasoning methods. Despite these parallel trends, little focused effort has been made on bridging the gap between the growing needs of older adults and their caregivers and these AI and technology developments. This is partly because the clinical needs of this vulnerable population are tremendous, including dementia, depression, polypharmacy, delirium, incontinence, vertigo, falls, spontaneous bone fractures, failure to thrive, neglect and abuse, and social isolation. The impact of social isolation and depression became even more evident during this recent COVID pandemic, given that almost half of women age over 75 live alone. Properly managing these complex needs of older adults requires special training and expertise, and to complicate matters more, physicians specialized in taking care of older adults are in short demand. An estimated 1.07 geriatricians exist per 10,000 elderly residents in the United States. To design practical AI tools and technologies to better care for older adults, Engineers/Scientists must work hand in hand with Clinical providers specially trained to understand and manage the complex needs of older adults at the physical, cognitive and social domains. In addition, the successful development, testing, and piloting of these technologies require collaboration with clinical researchers that have access to substantial research infrastructure and older patients in real-world clinical settings. Here we will focus on the impact of aging and discuss our attempts at connecting wires between the clinicians and engineers, including establishing Gerotech Incubators to foster collaboration between Geriatricians and Engineers.
Bio: Dr. Peter Abadir is an assistant professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His area of clinical expertise is geriatric medicine.
After receiving his medical degree from the University of Al Fateh, Dr. Abadir completed his residency in family medicine at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. He performed his fellowship in geriatric medicine and gerontology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Dr. Abadir’s research interests include changes in the renin angiotensin aldosterone system with aging, signal transduction and the role of the cross talk between angiotensin II receptor in aging, and understanding the role of angiotensin II in the development of vascular aging.
He has been recognized by the Hopkins Department of Medicine with the W. Leigh Thompson Excellence in Research Award. He is a member of the American Geriatrics Society and The Gerontological Society of America.
