"These are the people who aren't waiting to reinvent the world," the editors wrote in the special edition, posted Monday, December 19, 2011. They are "making a difference right now."
Etemadi, 25, a graduate student in the Department of Bioengineering & Therapeutic Sciences, was recognized for developing a device that detects pre-term labor in high-risk pregnancies and alerts the patient's physician via a cloud database. He received the 2011 mHealth Alliance Award for this work. More broadly, he is focused on designing pediatric biomedical devices and biomedical instruments to enable doctors to monitor patients' progress in their homes or remote clinical settings.
