“Neural Prosthetics-Pacemaker for” says Brain Warren Grill

Warren Grill was given a challenge in 2002. His soon-to-be business partner, Geoff Thrope, asked the Duke University Addy Professor of Biomedical Engineering: “You know, Warren, you’re doing a great job of being an academic biomedical engineer and publishing papers that end up in journals on a shelf. But is that sufficient?”

Since then, Grill (ENG’89) has risen to the challenge, translating fundamental research to several technologies with significant clinical impact. He and Thrope cofounded medical device start-up NDI Medical, LLC, a technology incubator that partners with academic researchers and supports in-house scientists and engineers in developing high-growth companies focused on innovative neurostimulation technologies. In recognition of his many innovations, Grill was named Neurotech Business ReportNeurotechnology Researcher of the Year in 2003, and in 2007 received the College of Engineering Distinguished Alumni Award for Service to the Profession.

Do your PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Ghent University

Job Description

The bioMMeda (biofluid, tissue and solid mechanics for medical applications) research unit of Ghent University’s Institute Biomedical Technology (IBiTech) has a vacant PhD-position in the field of ultrasonic imaging development for improved arterial tissue characterization. Non-invasive measurement of arterial stiffness is nowadays considered as an important part of cardiovascular risk assessment. Ultrasound is potentially useful for this application but unfortunately still shows limitations regarding resolution and sensitivity. The aim of the PhD-project therefore is to improve current ultrasonic image formation and signal processing to develop a robust ultrasonic estimator of arterial stiffness. As such, knowledge on signal processing, ultrasound physics/acoustics is considered an advantage.
