WEST ORANGE, NJ and NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Kessler Foundation and Children's Specialized Hospital have agreed to a collaborative research program for children with disabilities.
In the announcement, Rodger DeRose, president and chief executive officer of Kessler Foundation, said, "We are very pleased that Children's Specialized Hospital chose Kessler Foundation for this unique and exciting collaboration in translational rehabilitation research -- in which treatments discovered by scientists can be quickly applied to patient care. Kessler Foundation is excited to provide scientific expertise to change the lives of children with disabilities, as we have done for thousands of adults. We look forward to a long partnership with Children's Specialized Hospital and watching children's progress as they grow to lead full, independent and productive lives."
Children's Specialized Hospital Research Center was created to advance care, and establish evidence-based practices, for children with a variety of disabilities and special needs. Three Foundation researchers -- Senior Research Scientists, James Sumowski, Ph.D., and Karen Nolan, Ph.D., as well as Assistant Director of Engineering Research Peter Barrance, Ph.D. -- will be working with physicians and other clinical experts at Children's Specialized Hospital, where they will together investigate ways to improve mobility and cognition -- thinking, learning and memory -- in children with various challenges, including brain and spinal cord injuries. Kessler Foundation's Senior Vice President of Research and Training John DeLuca, Ph.D., will lead the Foundation's participation in the Research Center. The partnership also incorporates post-doctoral fellows to assist with research and develop projects.
"This partnership with Kessler Foundation will propel our mission of helping each child with special and complex medical needs reach their full potential," said Michael Dribbon, Ph.D., vice president of Business &Program Development at Children's Specialized Hospital. "Focusing on areas of mobility and cognition -- our collaboration with Kessler Foundation will enable Children's Specialized Hospital to reach new horizons in discovering best practices for care of children with unique medical challenges."
Since September 2012, Julia Coyne, Ph.D., has been a post-doctoral fellow at Children's Specialized Hospital through the partnership with Kessler Foundation. Her research translates existing studies from an adult population with cognitive disabilities to children with traumatic brain injury to investigate how an injured young brain heals and how it organizes itself around learning.
Kessler Foundation, a major nonprofit organization in the field of disability, is a global leader in rehabilitation research that seeks to improve cognition, mobility and long-term outcomes, including employment, for people with neurological disabilities caused by diseases and injuries of the brain and spinal cord. Kessler Foundation leads the nation in funding innovative programs that expand opportunities for employment for people with disabilities.

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
