      Authors: Mary Bates;
      Pages: 2 - 5
      Abstract: The Obama Administration launched the Cancer Moonshot in 2016 to accelerate aspects of cancer research, with then-Vice President Biden in charge of “mission control.” With the signing into law of the 21st Century Cures Act, the U.S. Congress authorized $$ $ 1.8 billion in funding for the Cancer Moonshot over seven years starting in 2017. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has invested those funds in more than 240 research projects and 70 programs in research priority areas including improving the understanding of cancer, encouraging collaboration and data sharing, and addressing cancer disparities [1].

      Authors: Leslie Mertz;
      Pages: 6 - 11
      Abstract: Surgeons around the world are now using robot-assisted tech to help them perform minimally invasive operations ranging from hernia repair and gall bladder removal to knee replacement and cancer-related colectomy, often manipulating the surgical tools from a computer console some distance from the patient. With names like da Vinci, Aquabeam, and Mako, robotic surgical technologies are becoming more common. As an example, industry powerhouse Intuitive reported in late 2021 that the number of surgical procedures using its robotic da Vinci system had topped 10 million globally [1].

      Authors: Jim Banks;
      Pages: 17 - 20
      Abstract: In 2005, Edward Boyden of Stanford University and Karl Deisseroth of MIT opened up a new field of research—optogenetics—that offered the potential to revolutionize the treatment of neurological conditions. Their quest to genetically encode brain cells to be photosensitive has unlocked a toolkit that researchers are adding to consistently, and the implications for neuroscience and neuroengineering are vast.

      Authors: Zara Abrams;
      Pages: 21 - 24
      Abstract: Operating a drone, playing video games, or controlling a robot simply by thinking are exciting applications of brain–computer interfaces (BCIs) that pave the way for more mind-bending breakthroughs. Crucially, BCIs, which enable the brain to exchange signals with an outside device, also represent a powerful tool to restore movement, speech, touch, and other functions to patients with brain damage. Despite recent progress in the field, technological innovation is needed and plenty of scientific and ethical questions remain unanswered. Still, researchers say BCIs hold great promise for patients with the most severe impairments—and that major breakthroughs are within reach.

      Authors: Andrés Díaz Lantada;
      Pages: 25 - 28
      Abstract: Examines the development and aspects of the Bauhaus model as it can be applied to contemporary engineering education. The Bauhaus was founded by Walter Gropius in 1919 with the intention of linking architecture with design and allowing art to merge into industry. Modern engineering education has progressively incorporated learning by doing as fundamental for professional development and for learning how to deal with complex multifaceted problems. In connection to health care technologies, most accredited BME programs and successful approaches to hands-on BME training also rely on project based learning (PBL) actions. Mainly they focus on technology development and entrepreneurship, which is adequate for creating successful professionals for high-tech companies, but possibly not broad scoped enough for true societal transformation. In fact, health care technologies have only a limited impact on human health, which should be approached more globally,

      Authors: Andre L. Cakici;Bryan Aleman;Ethan Grooby;
      Pages: 29 - 32
      Abstract: Student members within IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) are one of the most active segments among all other membership levels. Student-led initiatives all around the world have shown the necessity to give students the opportunity to present solutions to educational challenges, aiming to make the learning of young people an enriching and continuous experience while honing their organizational skills. IEEE EMBS SAC [1], formed under vice president for member and student activities, has taken the responsibility to initiate and implement programs for undergraduate and graduate student members of the society. One of these programs, IEEE EMBS ISC, is the flagship event under the oversight of the Professional Development Portfolio. The purpose of the ISCs is to help students learn to manage an IEEE-style conference in a low-pressure environment and improve on their soft skills like leadership, communication, teamwork, and project management. Moreover, it gives them a platform to practice giving and receiving peer feedback on scientific writing and presentations, as well as making international connections which could turn into future collaborations.

      Abstract: The 1st IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) and the University of Pécs International Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Innovation (ICBEI) was held on 24–26 October 2022, in Pécs, Hungary. The conference opened with welcome talks by Prof. Attila Miseta, the rector of the University of Pécs (UP), Prof. Miklos Nyitrai, the dean of the UP, and Prof. Metin Akay, the president of IEEE EMBS, who delivered the first keynote talk at the conference. Then, we enjoyed three more exceptional keynote talks by Dr. Yasemin Akay, Dr. Gabor Forgacs, and Dr. Istvan Ulbert (Figure 1). With the participation of 230+ people, nine keynote lectures, and nine health care companies holding exhibitions, the conference was exceptional and well organized by Dr. Luca Toth, Dr. Adam Schiffer, and Dr. Peter Maroti, M.D., Ph.D., from the Centre for Biomedical Engineering and Innovation (Figure 2). The conference organizing team did a fantastic job. The attendance by several medical school students, the participation of health care companies (Figure 3), the hackathon competition, and several workshops were the highlights of the event. The first day of the conference concluded with a special wine tasting sponsored by the University of Pécs Wine Research Institute. Then, the conference organizing committee appreciation dinner hosted by Luca Tóth, Adam Schiffer, and Péter Maróti in the historical city of Pécs was indeed an exceptional social and cultural event (Figure 4).

  • I Am Not in Position to Be Your Physician

      Authors: Arthur T. Johnson;
      Pages: 37 - 38
      Abstract: But, readers of this publication are more or less conversant with medical matters: diseases, treatments, physiologies, genetics, monitoring, interventions, and many more. We are aware of means to protect and foster health, including nutrition, life styles, exercises, medicines, rest, and therapies. We probably know a lot about the details, causes, and prognoses for many common medical ailments. We may even know enough medical lingo to parse out the meaning of less-common medical terms. With all that knowledge, others around us may look to us for medical advice; if they don’t, we are often tempted to offer it anyway. Ours is a world of knowledge with importance to ourselves, our families, our friends, and our acquaintances. It is a good position to be in, with many of the benefits of a purveyor of medical knowledge without most of the responsibilities of being a medical practitioner.

  • Contactless Vital Signs Monitoring

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Paul H. King;
      Pages: 39 - 40
      Abstract: This text appears to be relevant from the title and related advertising material. The book consists of 14 chapters: an introductory chapter, seven chapters dealing with camera-based monitoring, and six chapters that cover wireless sensor-based monitoring. The text was edited by two editors and is the product of some 30 contributors. The book does a reasonable overview of the material. It will likely be useful to electrical and biomedical students interested in the field as it relates to undergraduate instrumentation courses, and to graduate students interested in the development of patient monitoring systems. The text could use a more detailed listing of available equipment for the topics covered, as well as a cost of equipment discussion. One item missing from the text, however, is any discussion of the use of terahertz signal generation and uses, current and potential.
