Founded in 2006 by internationally-recognized physician visionary Dr. Leslie Saxon, the USC Center for Body Computing is a thought leader innovation hub designed to bring together digital and life sciences executives, sensor and mobile app investors, strategists, designers, investors and visionaries from healthcare, entertainment and technology to collaborate on transformative care solutions.

The USC Center for Body Computing is a leader in digital health clinical research and elite athletic performance studies. In collaboration with Keck Medicine of USC and strategic partner, Proactive Sports Performance, we have the ability to conduct clinical trials and performance studies at our facilities that help define and guide our client's product development efforts.

Future patient care models will leverage technology along with physician expertise to bring disease treatment and management options to more people on demand at an affordable cost. The first-of-its-kind Virtual Care Clinic will allow patients with a digital health prescription to access a wide variety of healthcare services, including a customizable virtual physician, tailored to their personal health challenges.   


We use biometric sensors and data to study the whole athlete. We believe that nutrition, mindset, training, and personalized data can be leveraged to create insights that will change the way athletes and coaches view the narrative of their performance.


At the USC Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT), leaders in the artificial intelligence, graphics, virtual reality and narrative communities are working to advance immersive techniques and technologies to solve problems facing service members, patients and society. From creating believable virtual humans to understanding how they can best be used in the real world, research at ICT aims to literally change the face of computing. 

As an internationally recognized innovation center and thought leader think tank, the Center for Body Computing is frequently recognized and covered by a wide variety of mainstream news outlets. Over the last decade, Dr. Saxon and the CBC have been featured in pieces by CNN, BBC, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, TEDMED, Fast Company and MobiHealthNews to name a few.
