Medical Electronics Symposium Keynotes Announced

May 29, 2012

SMTA and MEPTEC announce the keynote speakers for the two-day symposium titled "Medical Electronics Technology, Personal Health and the Economy - Drivers for Positive Business Growth."  The event will be held September 26-27, 2012 at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. ASU's School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering is co-sponsoring the event.

Keith Lindor, M.D., Executive Vice Provost for Health Solutions, Arizona State University, will give the keynote presentation “Personal Health: Concepts Impacting Healthcare” to kick-off the first day of the event.  Dr. Lindor will discuss how environmental aspects, personal choice, genetic factors and health care itself must be built on and aligned with the overall determinants of health.  He will outline how the use of predictive testing, translation of work from cell cultures to people, home care monitoring, and even changes in how we pay for health care will eventually be dependent on microelectronics technology.  Technology advances in these areas will contribute to our overall goal of better health with less expenditures and a healthier, happier, more productive population.

Livia Racz, Ph.D., Division Leader of Microsystems Technologies at the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, will present “Trends in 3D Micro-Packaging for Emerging Implantable Applications” to keynote the second day.  Dr. Racz will explore how implantable medical device applications continue to grow as technologies improve and opportunities emerge for better therapies and improved long-term outcomes.  Implants are increasing in complexity and sophistication, with a corresponding increase in the need for data processing power.  At the same time, there is a drive to make implants as small and long-lived as possible, while maintaining and improving safety and efficacy.  Advances in 3D micro-packaging of hermetic systems could lead to 'injectable' implants produced at the wafer scale, enabling a host of new prosthetic applications.
