Biomedical Engineering Seminar: Friday, January 30th: EERC 100, 3-4pm
D. Curt Deno, Senior Principle Scientist, St. Jude Medical Tech Center
“Applications of Coursework to Industrial Design and Clinical Practice: Biomedical Engineering/Science Applied to Cardiac Rhythm Disorders”
Sponsored by the Department of Biomedical Engineering
For the last roughly 100 years, technology has played crucial roles in advancing health care. Substantial contributions have come from academic and corporate R&D organizations–environments where learning and research have fostered the innovations that have shaped modern medicine. The speaker’s perspective includes training in both technical and biomedical disciplines. This talk intends to illustrate with examples how a good engineering or science background has repeatedly proven of value in advancing knowledge and developing products that benefit people with heart disease (form pediatric to the elderly). The speaker maintains that even despite occasional project related angst this is one of the most satisfying careers.
