Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society HealthTech Symposium

Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society HealthTech Symposium, Fall 2013


Andrew Kaufman, M.D. is an Assistant Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at SUNY Upstate Medical University. He will be presenting “From Academia to Industry: the Story of an Entrepreneurial Psychiatrist”. He will highlight the business case of Zinnia Safety Systems, LLC, a medical device start-up. Zinnia is developing a suicide monitoring system for use in custodial care facilities, such as jails and psychiatric hospitals. He will cover the technical challenges of product R&D for a non-engineer and discuss the relevant technology, photoplethysmography (PPG).

Denis Cormier, Ph.D. is the Earl W. Brinkman Professor of Advanced Machine Tools at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). His teaching and research interests focus on additive and direct-write printing technologies for synthesis of novel materials and geometric structures. 3D printing technologies have received a great deal of attention in recent years. What few people realize is that the medical community was responsible for driving much of the early innovations in this field. This talk will highlight a number of interesting ways in which different 3D printing technologies have been used in medicine.
