Public Health, Nanotechnology, and Mobility (PHeNoM)

A critical component of success of PheNoM devices and biometrics will be to understand their fit into relevant sociotechnical contexts, including those of patients and medical providers, concerned consumers, and existing bio-medical institutions. Co-PI Shilton will lead an ethnographic study of the social contexts in which the PheNoM devices and bio-mobile diagnostics are designed and deployed. This work will determine sociotechnical factors which may impact adoption, adaption, or rejection of devices and diagnostics within medical and personal use contexts.
