Leslie Saxon Career

Dr. Leslie Saxon is a professor of clinical medicine (clinical scholar) at the USC Keck School of Medicine who specializes in the identification and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias as well as the prevention of sudden cardiac death.

In addition to her work in cardiovascular medicine, Dr. Saxon is the executive director of the internationally renowned USC Center for Body Computing (CBC) and the recently established USC Virtual Care Clinic (VCC).

Currently, the CBC is a venue for all USC schools, including medical, engineering, business, and cinematic arts, to build interdisciplinary ties and hasten the development of fully integrated, “connected” medicine in collaboration with public and commercial partners.

She is a recognized expert in the pre-clinical and clinical development and testing of wearable and implanted technologies, including networked devices used in the medical, wellness, and fitness fields.

Her clinical background makes her a helpful strategist in the development of device models and software solutions that provide interactive user feedback based on real-time physiologic data. Her cultivation of vital new alliances to jointly market goods inside the CBC is crucial for advancing the distribution of medical information, enhancing communication, and enhancing health outcomes.

Dr. Saxon has published more than 150 articles in various medical journals, spoken at numerous forums, including TEDMED, South by Southwest (SXSW), WIRED Health, and CES, and was recently selected “Most Tech-Friendly Doctor” by Rock Health. National media routinely do interviews with Dr. Saxon, who is regarded as a digital health expert.
