EE Professor Ken Shepard and Team Win $16.4M DARPA Grant

Research team is developing an innovative patch device with active sensors to monitor and accelerate the wound healing process. “While wound bandages and dressings are one of the most common clinical tools for acute and chronic wound care, most are passive and cannot actively respond to variations in the wound environment,” says Shepard, a pioneer in bioelectronics. “Active sensing of the wound healing process would be a major advance for clinicians and patients alike.”
