To mitigate limitations of pharmaceutical drugs (e.g. non-adherence, drug-resistance, adverse effects, affordability) for epilepsy, pain, depression or cancer, our research is focused on creating digital therapeutics (mobile medical apps).

To improve therapy outcomes, mobile medical apps can be combined with pharmaceutical drugs yielding drug-device combination products. The long-term goal of our research is to develop drug-device combination therapies which target chronic diseases at both pharmacological and behavioral levels.
