See the recent coverage of our research in The Columbus Dispatch:


The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is fortunate to have two professors at the forefront of implantable technology in solving today's biomedical needs. Assistant Professor Liang Guo recently was awarded the prestigious DARPA Young Faculty Award for his proposal, "Implantable, Programmable Integrated Cellular Circuits." Assistant Professor Asimina Kiourti was recently awarded a National Science Foundation grant for her research on "Fully-Passive and Wireless Multichannel Neuro-Recording."

What this means to us is we get to spend some time with these two rising stars within the ECE Department and learn about their groundbreaking work in fueling biomedical advancements! Please join us for an overview of research in the areas of:

- Deep Brain Neuropotential Recording - fully-passive (e.g. no battery), wireless brain implants for continuous and unobtrusive monitoring

- Application-specific integrated biocircuits - think ASICs using living cells

- Implantable and Ingestible Antennas

- Bioelectromagnetics


6:00-6:45: Social hour and refreshments in Dreese Lab 260 

6:45-7:30: Implant Technology Overview by Profs Kiourti and Guo 

7:30-8:00: Tour Prof. Guo's Lab 

Parking is in the Visitors Parking Garage (Tuttle) near Dreese Lab on Neil Ave. Complimentary parking passes provided 

** Bring your aspiring Engineers with you!  **

As a reminder, guests are welcome, and we would especially like to see future Engineers who are interested in learning more attending our events!

** Do Meetup events count toward Continuing Education Credits? **

While the ECE Alumni Society or ECE Department do not offer a guarantee that a Meetup event qualifies based on the Ohio Continuing Education guidelines, if an attendee believes it qualifies and documents the justification, we will be able to vouch for attendance and participation in the event.
