Grants fund projects that will tackle 'Grand Challenges'
Date:12/22/2010

lutions to the world's biggest problems," Meldrum said. "We've awarded these grants to strong research teams that hold promise for meeting these challenges."

Meldrum's funding awards will support these projects:

National Center on Wireless Biosensors for Priority Global Health Conditions

Led by Nongjian Tao, professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and energy Engineering and director of the Center for Bioelectronics and Biosensors in the Biodesign Institute at ASU, and Andreas Spanias, a professor in the School of Electrical, Computing and Energy Engineering and director of the Center for Sensor Signals and Information Processing

The project will explore, develop and test wireless biosensors and algorithms for application in personalized medicine and mobile medical care.

Tao and Spanias intend for the work to lead to development of a regional center for research in biosensor hardware and signal and information processing technologies.

Advances in biosensors will enable more accurate and rapid medical diagnosis that can be applied to meeting many kinds of urgent health care needs around the world.

The team also will develop education and training methods to ensure technologists learn to use the next generations of biosensors effectively.

Cooperative Neural Control of Real and Virtual Devices

Led by Christopher Buneo, assistant professor in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering

The project involves development of the Center for Cooperative Neural Systems to focus on human-machine and human-human interactions using next-generation brain-machine interface technologies.

The aim is to create systems that enable two or more individuals to cooperate in controlling multiple devices using their recorded brain signals and multiple forms of feedback.

Such systems can be applied to both health care and national security needs.
