Research Focus

Dr. Pandit's clinical and research interests have always led him back to the intersection of medicine and technology and how it can improve the patient's clinical outcome. He has begun with in-kind loans to HIV positive farmers in Western Kenya, moved to including the patient's perspective in informed consent to weight outcomes, then with the sensor and wearable evolution his focus turned to disrupting the field of blood pressure monitoring and he pioneered a novel approach to cuffless blood pressure monitoring and eventually, moved on to all physiologic data that can be collected with smart devices and sensors with the focused desire to make them clinically relevant. As Director of Digital Medicine at SRTI, he works to advance the mission of how to personalize medicine by embracing the power of health technology.
