ONLINE N&PP Seminar by Dr. Eve Edelstein

October 8, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Dr. Eve Edelstein Oct. 8, 2020 3pm

Title: Translational Design: Neuroscience & Design for Health

Description: Dr. Edelstein’s presentation will focus on the urgent need for scientists and clinicians to engage in and enhance the process of design. Studies and examples will demonstrate the value of translating scientific and clinical research into design solutions that can impact individual and public health. A new model of collaboration is described that reflects the work of doctors and subject-matter experts in dementia, psychiatry, neuroscience, intensive care, emergency medicine, and anesthesia, among other specialties.

Results include design guidance for dementia patients by Trinity College Dublin, the adaptation of the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute for patients with cognitive, sensory, perceptual, and movement disorders, and studies on the impact of noise and light at Stanford University. The AIA COVID-19 Front Line Task Force Report will demonstrate the development of design strategies that address issues arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the scale of a city to that of a building or a room, the translation of neuroscience can enhance and save lives by design.
