Biomedical Engineering’s Dustin Tyler Receives SPiRE Grant

Dustin Tyler, associate professor of biomedical engineering, is a co-lead investigator on a team that received a $199,913 grant from the Rehabilitation Research and Development (RRD) Service Small Projects in Rehabilitation Research (SPiRE) program to develop advanced in-line connectors.

In the study, “In-Line 32-Channel Connector for High-Density Implantable Medical Device,” Tyler and Douglas Shire attempt to address the fact that while advancements in high-density nerve cuff electrodes and neurostimulation technology have been significant over the last decade, chronically implantable in-line interconnection technology for the associated leads has not kept pace.
