Mobile technologies are increasingly utilized for data collection and intervention delivery in health research, but hurdles persist. The MeTRIC Symposium brings together University of Michigan researchers and experts to share their work, outline obstacles and lessons learned, and provide guidance for the successful implementation of health research utilizing wearable and mobile technologies. 

Sessions focus on key themes that span considerations related to the design, technology, ethics, rigor, and reproducibility of research using mobile technologies. Topics align with resources available to U-M investigators. 

This in-person event is presented by the Mobile Technologies Research Innovation Collaborative (MeTRIC), and is open to all U-M faculty, staff and learners.
