Biomedical Workshop Held

Dozens of leading biomedical electronics experts convened at UT Dallas recently to discuss the future of the field and lay the groundwork for a nationwide call for proposals for up to $3 million in available research awards in the discipline.

The upcoming call for proposals will be for the second round of research grants from the Texas Analog Center of Excellence, or TxACE, which is based at UT Dallas.

Biomedical applications of electrical engineering could constitute the next big wave in electronics development and commercialization, comparable to the rise of personal computers in the 1980s and cell phones in the 1990s, said Charles Sodini, the Clarence J. Lebel Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who spoke at the workshop. (more…)
