UMass Amherst Campus
The Office of Research in the College of Nursing is pleased to present the second talk in its 2019 Fall Seminar Series, "Point-of-Care Technologies: A Patient-Centered Approach to Diagnostics and Monitoring", presented by Dr. Michael Rust, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Western New England University.
Point-of-Care technologies have attracted significant attention recently as a result of the benefits they provide by enabling measurements wherever the patient is located. However, they also pose significant technical challenges. Dr. Rust will discuss recent developments in Point-of-Care technologies, including applications in diabetes care and global health.
Dr. Rust received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH, in 2003 and 2009, respectively. His research interests involve the development of point-of-care medical technologies, including bioinstrumentation for use in low-resource settings. Dr. Rust is the co-founder and Chief Technical Officer at New England Breath Technologies, which is developing a non-invasive breathalyzer for diabetes care.
