Personalized health care will revolutionize 21st century medicine, says NJIT professor
Date:2/6/2013

  • Providing minimal healthcare in the eastern part of the globe which accounts for more than two-thirds of the world population will remain challenging especially for curbing diseases and infections like HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis or malaria. The issue will become more critical if there is a potential outbreak of an epidemic.

  • Educating users on the implementation of these new technologies, data communication, compliance and behavioral change poses the most formidable challenge. People will need to realize and accept a new role and reasonability in keeping themselves, family members or others healthy, said Dhawan.

    "It appears that personalized medicine or point-of-care healthcare technologies are creating a paradigm-shift in global healthcare. However, the development, deployment and compliance issues related to affordable global healthcare must be examined towards developing sound business models so they can be sustained with an economic impact to support the implementation infrastructure."

    Dhawan, who is also the interim dean of the Albert Dorman Honors College (ADHC), was selected to represent the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society as a 2012-2013 Distinguished Lecturer to travel worldwide providing lectures about advances today in medicine and technology. In December, he was a special guest lecturer at Cornell University.

    Dhawan is best known among engineering peers as the inventor of an important innovation for an instrument commonly used to detect skin cancer--the nevoscope. The optical transillumination technology developed by Dhawan was also commercialized into a line of vein visualization products, Veinlite.

    Dhawan currently is developing a multi-spectral optical and near-infrared tissue imaging technology to measure and monitor glucose levels in the blood non-invasively without painful pricking to get a drop of blood as required by conventional glucose monitors.
