NYU-X, located in the NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing, investigates the use of emerging technologies for innovation in health care. NYU-X examines how novel HC (human-computer interaction), virtualization/simulation technology (including virtual reality), and next-generation fabrication solutions can be found for so-called “wicked” problems in clinical care, medical education, and public health. The lab works with a large interdisciplinary team of clinicians, engineers, and research scientists from across NYU. Students will have access to the NYU-X lab and collaborative/federated facilities at NYU and in the New York metropolitan area. Students will also partner with faculty from the Integrated Digital Media Program at NYU Tandon, housed within the Media and Games Network (MAGNET), NYU’s flagship facility for innovation and applied research in culture and technology.
