Courage is uncommon. It is not the determination to exact revenge or to react with a fear imposed by others, but the ability to persevere on your own despite external events. It is neither denial nor is it unawareness; courage is vigilant and prudent. It is quiet but attentive.
Design projects are a major part of the capstone design course. By focusing on the design process and allowing students to gain hands-on experience in design, they help prepare students for careers in engineering.
Biomedical engineering history is full of hidden treasures, one of whom is Al-Zahrawi, a Muslim surgeon who had a wide reputation in Europe during the Middle Ages. Herein, besides recalling that he was a surgeon, the intent is to spotlight his talent in biomedical engineering.
Michael R. Neuman, M.D., Ph.D., former editor of IEEE Pulse Magazine and an IEEE Fellow, passed away on 18 February 2016. Michael Neuman was a friend and mentor to many, an accomplished researcher and academic as well as a dedicated and tireless member of EMBS for many decades.

For many therapeutic interventions, imaging has become an essential component of initial diagnosis.
Some call it the five-second rule, some extend that to five minutes, and some don’t care. This is the amount of time…
In general, integral transforms are useful tools for solving problems involving certain types of partial differential equations (PDEs), mainly when their solutions on the corresponding domains of definition are difficult to deal with. For a given PDE defined on a domain…
Man-machine interfacing is one of the most interesting areas of research in biomedical engineering. The aim of such interfaces is to collect information from and present information to the human body in order to enable and streamline interactive processes involving human users. But one artist/researcher
Scientists have recently reported the presence of water on Mars, renewing the hope that life exists on that planet and simultaneously offering a still-distant—but closer—dream for a place to be free (or perhaps freer?).
Shopping is not my favorite activity, but when I do have that opportunity, usually when on vacation, I often find myself in shops catering to tourists. Of course, the shop proprietors have filled their shelves with arts and crafts that are cute, attractive, and generally very appealing.
