"Mount Sinai Health System Launches New Precision Wellness 'N1' App"
Have you ever wondered whether your double latte really helps you function better in that early-morning meeting? Or if melatonin truly gives you better sleep at night? Now there's a way to find out, thanks to a new mobile precision wellness iPhone app developed at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The app, known as N1, enables individuals to answer these kinds of questions in a statistically rigorous way. "We've taken the tools that power clinical research and for the first time made them available to the public," said Noah Zimmerman, PhD, director of the Health Data and Design Innovation Center at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Zimmerman added, “Individuals can now use some of the statistical and methodological tools that scientists use.” According to Jason Bobe, MSc, principal investigator of the study and associate professor of genetics and genomic sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, “The hope is the app will enable many more people to adopt the n-of-1 approach."
