Jacob Brenner, MD, PhD of the University of Pennsylvania is developing the DOVE device. Adolescents remain extremely vulnerable to the adverse effects of opioid use and overdose.

There is an urgent need for novel solutions that passively monitor respiratory drive and trigger automated responses to reverse an overdose when detected.
