Proposals Win New Initiative Grants

A program to train scientists to better manage vast, complex datasets, and a center that will transform human mobility through information technology and robotics, have been selected as the first recipients of the Large-Scale Interdisciplinary Research Ignition Initiative sponsored by the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences.

The iMove Center, led by co-PIs David Reinkensmeyer (mechanical and aerospace engineering, and biomedical engineering), Steve Cramer (neurology), Mark Bachman (electrical engineering and computer science) and Walt Scacchi (information and computer science) will search for ways to use information technology, robotics and neuro-regenerative therapies, including dance, sport and computer games, to improve human mobility and challenge patients beyond what is possible with current rehabilitation models.
