Gates Foundation Award!

Dr. Todd Coleman of the Neural Interaction Lab @ UCSD and Dr. John Rogers from UIUC have recently been awarded with a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Challenge Grant for pregnancy monitoring using epidermal electronics. “Electronic tattoo” devices will be developed to continuously monitor contractions, fetal heart rate, maternal oxygen, maternal heart rate, and maternal body temperature, and transmit this information wirelessly to a smart phone. We plan for this technology to enable unobtrusive, continuous, and wireless pregnancy monitoring to advance the epidemiology of pre-term birth, especially in at-risk patients in developing countries.
