The mission of biomedical engineering academic programs is to prepare future generations of biomedical engineers and provide them with skillsets that can set them up for success in the continuously evolving industry and academic landscapes. This talk will address my experience as director of the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering and a university/industry consortium at Arizona State University in building a culture of synergistic collaborations, impact, and innovation. Biography Marco Santello is Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Director, and Harrington Endowed Chair at the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, and Director of BRAIN, an NSF-supported industry/university cooperative research center in neurotechnology. His main research interests are motor control, learning, and biomechanics of grasping and manipulation, neural control of hand muscles, haptics, and multisensory integration. His laboratory uses complementary research approaches, ranging from electromyography and transcranial magnetic stimulation to motion tracking, kinetic analysis, electroencephalography, and virtual reality environments. Dr. Santello’s research has applications to rehabilitation of sensorimotor hand function, prosthetics, and biologically-inspired robotics. Dr. Santello has published his work (100+ publications) in neuroscience and engineering journals. His research has been supported by research awards from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, DARPA, the Whitaker Foundation, The Mayo Clinic, and Google. He has served as regular member of the Motor Function, Speech, and Rehabilitation Study Section at the National Institutes of Health, and currently serves as member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Assistive, Rehabilitative and Therapeutic Technologies. He is a member of the Society for Neuroscience, the Society of Neural Control of Movement, and IEEE. DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200203T120000 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
