During this lecture, Sam Emaminejad (BASc '09), Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering at UCLA, will discuss his research of biomarker monitoring platforms, his education and career path, and provide any advice he may have for students for their academics and careers.

Sam Emaminejad has a strong vision of incorporating his devices in large-scale clinical and physiological studies in order to have real-world impact. Sam’s research work uniquely seeks to bridge the gap between the Internet of Things and Personalized Medicine by developing an ecosystem of biomarker monitoring platforms. His research work on the development of wearable sweat extraction and biomarker analysis platforms is universally acclaimed and has been published in Nature and PNAS. Through this work, Sam demonstrates an unprecedented modality for non-invasive and real-time health monitoring. To maximize the impact of his research, he is now gearing his versatile wearable technology toward biomarker validation, diagnostic and treatment monitoring applications.
