Behind the Scenes at IEEE Pulse

Since taking the helm of IEEE Pulse in January 2014, I am very proud of how we have built on the solid journalistic foundation constructed by former Editor-in-Chief Mike Neuman to broaden the scope, increase the visibility, and heighten the global impact of the magazine

Editor's Pick

Where Technology and Patient Care Intersect

Where do patient satisfaction, medical advancement, and innovation meet? The answer is here—right in this issue as we focus on the patient experience and consider how best to integrate technology into that experience, rather than allowing technology to define it. Think Google Glass for hospitals, and you’re ready to walk down

Single Cell Sequencing: The Future of Cancer Care

The advent of oncology therapies acting against molecular targets in pathways inhibiting carcinogenesis has opened new treatment options with greatly reduced toxicities. A recent example is the blocking of the epidermal growth factor signaling pathway by the binding of a monoclonal antibody to the EGF receptor or the inhibition of tyrosine kinase activity in the EGF pathway

Breaking Patterns: The Long Road to a Diabetes Solution

In 1872, German Egyptologist Georg Ebers made a surprising discovery related to the ancient practice of medicine. The discovery, found in southern Egypt, was a papyrus believed to contain the first documented reference in history to diabetes. Although Eber’s papyrus was estimated to date back to 1550 B.C., it contained passages referencing older documents

Life as a Serial Entrepreneur

Recently, I was sitting in a local coffee shop trying to think of a topic for my editorial in this issue of IEEE Pulse, and I was having little success. I thought it ironic that I spend the majority of my day writing e-mails, proposals, and reports but couldn’t think of a topic for what should be a simple assignment: writing this column. Since becoming editor-in-chief of IEEE Pulse, I am now challenged to think of interesting topics on which I can opine on a regular basis. After some thought, I elected to fall back on the tried and true writer’s adage and write about what I know: what it is like to be a serial entrepreneur.
