CAPCaT - POCTRN

Center for Advancing Point of Care in Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep Diseases

Focus: To support development, deployment, and testing of promising “late-stage” point of care technologies that can be rapidly deployed to enhance the diagnosis, monitoring, management, and/or treatment of heart, lung, blood or sleep disorders.


CAPCaT’s core mission is to support development, deployment, and testing of promising “late-stage” point of care technologies that can be rapidly deployed to enhance the diagnosis, monitoring, management, and/or treatment of heart, lung, blood or sleep disorders (NHLBI), with an additional interest in projects that incorporate complementary and integrative health approaches (NCCIH). These approaches include natural products, such as herbs, prebiotic, probiotics, and selective medical diets, and mind and body practices including acupuncture, meditation, manual therapies (e.g., spinal manipulation/mobilization), hypnosis, meditative movements (e.g. tai chi, yoga, etc.), and music/art therapies.
