Digital Health and Regulatory Science

Digital health tools like sensors and software, combined with emerging methods to exploit real-world data, can help develop new therapeutics, diagnose and treat disease, and enhance healthcare delivery. The development and use of these emerging tools and data involves rapidly evolving regulatory science considerations to ensure these products are safe and effective.

The UR CTSI Digital Health and Regulatory Science Core can help your studies utilize digital health approaches and offers funding for innovative digital health research. The core also continues to establish a range of partnerships with regional technology development organizations to help connect and support researchers who are developing and using digital health tools, methods, and data.

UR CTSI Digital Health and Regulatory Science Core 

We​ aim to advance, disseminate, and integrate regulatory science knowledge and innovations in digital health to enhance training, translational research, and health care. Leveraging strengths from across the University of Rochester and the region, the core will focus on national and local initiatives that address key translational barriers at the nexus of digital health, regulatory science, and personalized medicine. 

Partners for Technology Translation

To speed the translation of digital health technologies and approaches, we help facilitate partnerships between researchers at the University of Rochester and regional technology development organizations that provide expertise, services, training, and funding to digital health entrepreneurs, such as:

  • UR Ventures protects, develops, and commercializes the intellectual property arising from research at the University of Rochester.
  • NextCorps provides a suite of services, including technology commercialization for very-early-stage opportunities and  business incubation for high-growth-potential startups.
  • Excell Partners venture capital fund that invests in high-tech, high-growth startups in New York State focused on Upstate NY.

Additional Partners

There is a broad range of internal and external partners who can be valuable resources for researchers interested in developing or utilizing digital tools, methods, or data.
