    On a picturesque summer day a few months ago, a friend and I were walking along a New Jersey boardwalk when we ran into a group of older women who recently retired from nursing. Casual conversation over a beautifully staged beach wedding taking place that afternoon turned naturally into a discussion of our various professions. Upon hearing that my friend was in medical school, the women began shri... View full abstract»

    It is amazing how time flies. I am now one week away from both the official start of graduate school and the end of my third lab rotation. The new first-year medical class (the class of 2016) has moved to Boston and already started medical school. It feels like just yesterday that my classmates and I were in their shoes.

    The integration of brain monitoring based on electroencephalography (EEG) into everyday life has been hindered by the limited portability and long setup time of current wearable systems as well as by the invasiveness of implanted systems (e.g. intracranial EEG). We explore the potential to record EEG in the ear canal, leading to a discreet, unobtrusive, and user-centered approach to brain monitori... View full abstract»

    A massive undertaking is in progress in the health-care industry as doctors offices and hospitals across the country are beginning to make the transition to health information technology (IT). Some users of electronic health records (EHRs) see benefits while others don't, but either way, the health industry and the U.S. government view IT as necessary and important. View full abstract»

    For the first time in more than 20 years, the federal government has recently proposed changes to a regulation that has been a mainstay of scientific research in the United States. The proposal came in July 2011, when the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published an advance notice of proposed rule making in the Federal Register [1]. The notice, titled “Human Subjects Research ... View full abstract»
