Professor Todd Coleman named one of San Diego Magazine’s 50 people to watch


Dr. Todd Coleman, Associate Professor of Bioengineering and director of the Neural Interaction Laboratory, was named one of San Diego Magazine’s 50 people to watch in 2013 and was on the cover of the magazine. Professor Coleman was recognized for his innovations in developing flexible electronic sensors that adhere to the skin and wirelessly transmit signals for applications in brain-machine interfaces, pregnancy monitoring, and neonate brain monitoring.

Coverage by San Diego Magazine can be found here.

Todd Coleman @ TEDx San Diego

Dr. Todd Coleman recently spoke at the 2012 TEDx: San Diego event on Epidermal Electronics and the use of this technology to positively affect health through all stages of life: pregnancy monitoring, neonate brain monitoring, and diagnosis of cognitive deficits in aging populations.

Channel 7 in San Diego covered the event, reporting that over 600 people came to hear the talks.

Hugs From Mom and Dad, Without the Wires

The Coleman Lab was recently featured in a UCSD News article detailing their recent efforts in using Epidermal Electronics to monitor the brains of newborns to advance frontiers in neonatal health …

Getting this to work with babies who are very fragile, will also go a long way toward demonstrating that the device is robust while maintaining the comfort of the patient. As an added bonus, we’re doing something to reduce the physical barriers between parents and their newborn babies in intensive care, which can only be beneficial.

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.
