WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – March 4, 2011 – The Translational Science Institute (TSI) at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, part of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, recently hosted an Innovation Summit at the Benton Convention Center. The Summit focused on mobile computing technology for research and clinical care support.

The objective of the Innovation Summit was to bring together leaders and scientists actively engaged in the field of mobile computing with researchers, staff and administrators interested in learning more about this emerging technology.

Several topics were discussed including a presentation on bioinformatics in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the use of mobile technologies by Shayn Martin, M.D., assistant professor in the department of General Surgery at Wake Forest Baptist; and a presentation on automatic identification and volume computation of food using mobile phones by Rick Weiss’, M.S., president and founder of Viocare, Inc in Princeton, N.J.
