Borkholder Biomedical Microsystems Lab

GLE-3291, 4400
David Borkholder

The Borkholder Biomedical Microsystems Laboratory carries out research in MEMs, sensors, medical devices, integrated electronics, physiological monitoring, signal processing, auditory dysfunction, and assistive device technologies.  Collaborating with colleagues in the colleges of Engineering, Science, and Medicine at RIT, the University of Rochester, the University of South Florida, and Rochester General Health Systems, this group has developed new technologies such as implantable micropumps for inner ear drug delivery; hybrid MEMS sensors and actuators integrating classical microelectromechanical systems with direct write microscale 3D print technologies; user guided assistive listening systems for the hearing impaired; non-invasive physiologic sensors; compressed sensing architectures; nanomembrane electromostic actuators; and soldier worn blast dosimetry sensors. 

The group is funded by industrial partners, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the National Institutes of Health Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIH-NIDCD), and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
