Frank Treiber, Ph.D., is used to catching the latest wave, whether it's in the Atlantic Ocean or in the use of mobile technology that he sees as a game changer in shaping the delivery of health care.

Treiber, formerly vice president for research development at Georgia Health Sciences University, came to MUSC in 2010 as a SmartState endowed chair in technology applications to prevent and manage disease. He leads the Technology Center to Enhance Healthful Lifestyles that is charged with developing and commercializing software and technological products to improve the delivery of health care.
