Sergei Adamovich, PhD, associate professor in the department of biomedical engineering at NJIT, was recently invited to participate in a press conference to present the results of his team's research to the media at the annual conference of the Society for Neuroscience. >>
Sergei Adamovich, PhD, associate professor in the department of biomedical engineering at NJIT, co-authored "Integrated Arm and Hand Training Using Adaptive Robotics and Virtual Reality Simulations," which won the Best Paper Award at the VIII International Conference on Disability, Virtual Reality and Associated Technologies in Valparaiso, Chile.  >>
Darshan J. Desai, a lecturer in NJIT's Department of Biological Sciences, will discuss "The Role of E-Cadherin in the Regulation of Myelination in the Peripheral Nervous System" at a Biomedical Engineering Department Seminar on Nov. 5 at 11:30 a.m. in Cullimore Lecture Hall 3. >>
Shelley Fried, PhD of the Department of Neurosurgery/ Massachusetts General Hospital Harvard Medical School and the Boston Retinal Implant Project, Boston VA Healthcare System, will discuss improved stimulation methods with neural prosthetics on Oct. 22 at 11:30 a.m. in Cullimore Lecture Hall 3. >>
Sergei Adamovich, PhD, associate professor in NJIT's Department of Biomedical Engineering, gave an invited lecture last week at the meeting of the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine in Washington, DC. He participated in a panel of six experts from the US, Canada and Europe to share his views on future trends in pediatric rehabilitation. The topic of his presentation to a large audience of pediatricians and physical/occupational therapists was the use of technology (robotics and virtual reality) in rehabilitation of arm movement in children with cerebral palsy.  >>
Ian Lafond, a second-year PhD student in NJIT's Department of Biomedical Engineering, has received a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award for Individual Predoctoral Fellowship from the National Institutes of Health. This $142,000 award will support Ian's dissertation research in the lab of Associate Professor Sergei Adamovich over the next four years. >>
Devendra Bajaj, PhD, a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Orthopaedics at UMDNJ-NJMS, will discuss "Tooth: A Tough Natural Biocomposite" on Sept. 24, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in Cullimore Lecture Hall II. >>
Music has many virtues — including the potential to benefit individuals whose mobility is severely impaired by cerebral palsy and spinal injuries. In the first of NJIT's new series of Technology and Society Forum presentations, Pauline Oliveros and colleagues from the Deep Listening Institute will demonstrate software that makes it possible to improvise music with slight head movements. This software extends the expressive, holistic and therapeutic benefits of musical improvisation to both adults and children. >>
Two NJIT biomedical researchers have received the prestigious Coulter Foundation Translational Awards for promising patent applications that may some day extend peoples' lives.  >>
Cheul H. Cho, PhD, an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at NJIT, will receive the 2010 Phase I Coulter Foundation Translational Research Award for his work on stem cell technology for the treatment of liver failure. Dr. Cho will present his project at the Foundation Annual Meeting on August 9 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. >>
Treena Arinzeh, PhD, an associate professor in NJIT's Department of Biomedical Engineering, has been named a Career Awardee of the 2010 Coulter Foundation Translational Award for Biomedical Engineering. The award seeks to support biomedical research that is translational in nature, and to encourage and assist eligible biomedical engineering investigators to establish themselves in academic careers involving translational research.   >>
With July 4th around the bend, if you've ever feared a head injury from a roller coaster ride, it's time to stop worrying and enjoy your local amusement parks. Although a significant body of scientific research has long contended that the physics behind gravitational force isn't enough to cause problems, misconceptions have abounded anyway, said Bryan Pfister, PhD, an assistant professor in the department of biomedical engineering at NJIT. >>
Helping stroke patients regain use of their hands and arms through innovative robotic and virtual reality-based video game therapies is the focal point of NJIT Associate Professor Sergei Adamovich, a biomedical engineer. Thanks to a $1.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Adamovich is developing better ways to rehabilitate people who have lost control of their hands, fingers, shoulders and elbows.   >>
Mariya Tohfafarosh, of Hackensack, received the Outstanding Senior Award in Biomedical Engineering at the 12th Annual Salute to Engineering Excellence at NJIT's Newark College of Engineering (NCE).  The event was held March 25, 2010 at NJIT. >>
U.S. Food and Drug Administration district staff recently spoke to a group of some 25 graduate students and professors in NJIT's Graduate Biomedical Engineering Society (GBMES). The presentation centered on the history of the U.S. Public Health Service and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration with an additional focus on the FDA's role in the regulation of medical devices. >>
Michael Jaffe, a research professor of biomedical engineering at NJIT, has received a patent for a chemical derived from sugar. This new material is a derivative of isosorbide and may be able to replace bisphenol A (BPA) in a number of consumer products, including the lining of tin cans. >>
