Solar Cell is a mobile smart phone application, developed under a contract with National Cancer Institute. The program combines personal and behavior data with geo-spatial data (i.e., UV Index forecast, time, and location) to deliver actionable sun protection advice to reduce risk of skin cancer. Versions of the application are currently being produced for Android and iPhone platforms and will be available for purchase soon.
