University of Washington researchers have developed a smartphone app that accurately measures jaundice in adults using a selfie and an accessory
People & Society
Out of fascination and need, people have always studied other people. When scientific methods are applied to those observations, the studies help characterize and analyze our behavior, social and political institutions, family and community structures and our economies. Scientific studies of people and society help answer age-old human contemplations.
