ECE alumnus Dr. Protagoras Cutchis of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab spoke at an ECE Seminar on April 18, 2007 about the development of biomedical devices from 1984 to the present. His discussion included pitfalls of biomedical device development as well as successes, as well as the contrast between academia and the commercial world.

Dr. Cutchis is a University of Maryland alumnus four times over. He earned a B.S. in electrical engineering, a B.S. in physics, and an M.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park, as well as an M.D. from the University of Maryland at Baltimore.

Dr. Cutchis was recently named to Scientific American's prestigious "SA 50" list for a device he developed that may enable amputees to communicate reflexive movements simply by thinking about them. He also received the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory Invention of the Year award in the Physical Sciences category for this innovation.

He is a licensed physician in the state of Maryland, and has extensive experience in hardware and software design of real time embedded systems as well as low power digital and analog circuit design. Dr. Cutchis is also experienced in biocompatibility issues, biomedical and chemical sensor design, as well as medical device requirements definition. He holds six patents, has published over 20 research papers and journal articles, and is a member of IEEE.
