The Massachusetts AI and Technology Center for Connected Care in Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease (MassAITC) fosters the development, validation and translation of AI-enhanced technologies that support healthy aging at home for older adults and individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. It does so through the provision of pilot funding, training, core facilities and by conducting ongoing needs assessment from the various stakeholders involved in promoting healthy aging.
MassAITC is supported by a grant from the National Institute on Aging and spans five institutions within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts including the UMass Amherst (UMass Amherst), Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brandeis University, and Northeastern University. It is Co-Directed by C4HDS Executive Director Niteesh Choudhry, MD, PhD and Deepak Ganesan, PhD (UMass Amherst) along with a multi-disciplinary Executive Team that includes C4HDS Assistant Director, Julie Lauffenburger, PharmD, PhD.
MassAITC is one of three funded AITC Centers, which is coordinated by the a2 Collective.
