I'd like to see you as I make my morning rounds at the Medical Designline.
If you have your finger on the pulse of one of the many fascinating arteries of medical electronics, let's talk about starting a blog. No time to write a blog? Drop a few comments as you dash off to your daily triage.
I'm already reaching out to key sources I know in the field, but I may not have met you. All specialists are welcome, and I know there are plenty of you out there.
Medical electronics is a fascinating field with plenty to explore. I've been able to attend the annual gathering of the IEEE Engineering in Medical and Biology Society four times so far, hearing a keynote from the father of the MRI at one event.
I covered the launch and early days of Continua, an Intel-led effort to establish systems standards for home healthcare. I synched up with Bluetooth 4.0 and other body-area nets that have come calling on health and fitness devices. And I've talked with implant experts from Medtronic and St. Jude.
There's so much more to explore. Here in my Silicon Valley backyard, electronics and pharma companies are colliding in San Francisco's Mission Bay. Lab-on-a-chip systems, testers, and DNA sequencers are teaming up to identify and track proteins and drugs and their impact on living cells.
I'd like to create a robust and healthy ecosystem of bloggers, including a regulatory watch dog. So get on your scrubs and report for duty by dialing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
