The Purdue University Board of Trustees on Friday (June 11) ratified six professor positions, including that of BME head George Wodicka, who was named the Vincent P. Reilly Professor of Biomedical Engineering.
Purdue University engineers have developed a method to transform existing cloth items into battery-free wearables resistant to laundry. These smart clothes are powered wirelessly through a flexible, silk-based coil sewn on the textile.
After 30 years of development, a medical device designed to continuously monitor the airways of the tiniest ventilated patients could become the standard of care for babies worldwide, using technology developed by BME's George Wodicka.
A brain-machine interface (BMI) involves recording the neural signals associated with movement intention directly from those parts of the brain. BME’s Maria Dardalat Makin is using this to help restore movement and sensation after brain injury.
The coronavirus pandemic has demonstrated how crucially important it is to bring new and innovative medical products to market as quickly as possible, while still ensuring they are safe and effective and perform as intended.
Teaching agricultural and food engineering, advancing STEM learning, studying cardiac remodeling, and improving Alzheimer's disease treatments are some of the research projects of four Purdue Engineering faculty who have been named U.S. Fulbright Faculty Scholars.
The Graduate School held its PhD ceremony at 10 a.m. Sunday, May 16 at Edward C. Elliott Hall of Music for 198 doctoral candidates, of which 119 were expected to be from the College of Engineering. Purdue Provost Jay Akridge spoke at that ceremony.
Congratulations to all students graduating in the Class of 2021. With an expected 1,553 BS, 411 MS, and 119 PhD degrees being awarded to Boilermaker Engineers, it’s the College of Engineering's largest spring commencement.
Mobile health (mHealth) technologies will play a key role in digital initiatives to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes, reduce cost and inequality, and enhance the patient experience. BME’s Young Kim is taking a different approach — to completely minimize the complicated hardware and avoid smartphone attachments.
