VIP Teams

  • By predicting seizure before its onset, doctors could act preventively with actions that include stimulation treatment recently proposed. To facilitate that, scientists at Rice University and the University of Texas Health Science Center will work together to develop algorithms that will optimize the development of an implantable device. The device will deliver low-frequency electrical...
  • Imagine a gym that helps you keep track of your exercise, its intensity, its correctness and your vitals while you focus on exercise. Automatically. Accurately. Even without a wearable. Every time. Welcome to the Digital Gym. We are developing technologies that will convert any gym into the digital gym of the future. Digital Gym is a project in the world’s first Quantified Communities (QC)...
  • We have demonstrated that rotary jet spinning successfully produces microfiber networks of polymers accepted by the FDA for surgical implantation. Importantly, we can collect these fibers on spinning mandrels to rapidly generate tubular scaffolds that support cell culture. These scaffolds mimic the fibrillar architecture of human tissues. Prototypes for the rotary jet spinning system and...
  • Engineer a system for manufacturing hydrogel membranes with tunable properties. Engineer a system for precision manufacturing of hydrogel microspheres. Interdisciplinary training for students that spans biomedical, materials, chemical, mechanical, and electrical engineering
  • Build an integrated system for harvesting electrical energy from body heat as well as sensing/transmitting bio data to central processing units for continuous realtime health monitoring.
