Case School of Engineering’s Mehran Mehregany published the first textbook for wireless health, titled Wireless Health: Remaking of Medicine by Pervasive Technologies.
Wireless health enables diagnosis, therapy and monitoring of health-related conditions by tracking relevant biomarkers, managing treatment regimen and monitoring progress—often while the patient goes about her daily life. The frontlines of digital health solutions comprise sensors for nonintrusive measurements of health and disease conditions. Mehregany’s textbook teaches the fundamental and practical knowledge necessary to advance in this rapidly growing field.
Anant Madabhushi, professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, has been named a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
Madabhushi was nominated and elected for his contributions in the development of computational imaging algorithms for automated analysis and interpretation of medical imaging data.
The AIMBE College of Fellows is comprised of the top 2 percent of medical and biological engineers in the country, and fellows are regularly recognized for their contributions in teaching, research and innovation.
Health care workers must diagnose and isolate Ebola victims at an early stage to have a chance to save them and prevent the virus from spreading. But the most sensitive and quickest diagnostic test produces a small percentage of false negative results that undermine efforts to control the deadly agent.
Case Western Reserve University researchers have been awarded a $100,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to—within a year—develop a method to reduce the risk of the virus going undetected.
James McGuffin-Cawley, chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been re-elected to the executive committee of America Makes, a federal initiative to develop advanced manufacturing techniques in the United States.
Case Western Reserve University was among the institutions at the head of America Makes when it was launched as the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute in 2012, with McGuffin-Cawley leading the university’s efforts in manufacturing innovation.
