Boston has long been known as a medical mecca of scientific discovery. Boston’s healthcare professionals and administrators are adopting practices from other high-risk and service industries. The ‘big data’ movement is thriving, fundamentally changing our healthcare delivery systems. Digital health investments are higher than ever before. Medical hackathons and un-conferences are now an every-weekend occurrence. And both redesign and innovation promise to change medicine as we know it. It’s all happening right here, right now. But the problem is that many of us don’t know it. Despite Boston’s innovative energy and a solid medical infrastructure, many medical providers and health care entrepreneurs remain in the dark about the opportunities, events and work happening in and around the city of Boston – and across the country. That’s where we come in.

At Medtech Boston, we highlight exciting medical innovation work in and around the city of Boston. We aim to start a discussion about the most exciting and controversial new healthcare offerings, igniting a new reputation for Boston as a city with first-class medical research and patient care, but also as a city full of passionate people who use new technology to think big thoughts about medicine’s most pressing problems.

More organizational information and event postings from Medtech Boston is available here.


Future topics will be similar to the previous Brainmap season, with some talks on Optogenetics, MR-PET, BOLD physiology, ultra-high field MRI, multimodal integration, contrast agents, and many more exciting topics! Unless otherwise noted, seminars (webinars) are held on Wednesdays at noon.

Position title: Post-doctoral Researcher
Position start date: September 1st
Project: Rapid detection of airborne pathogens
Faculty Supervisor: Domitilla Del Vecchio, Department of Mechanical Engineering, MIT

Project description: This project aims to design a fieldable device to perform near real time detection of indoor airborne pathogens. Currently, there are no devices available to detect airborne pathogens, such as viruses and bacteria, in indoor environments in near real-time and on-site. Timely action informed by early detection can reduce the spread of infection in a number of settings, such as schools, hospitals, nursing homes, and office buildings, thereby also reducing the costs of healthcare, absenteeism, and loss of productivity. In the past two years, we devised and characterized a fieldable process for rapid detection of SARS-CoV2, which can detect levels of pathogens in the low range of what is expected in closed spaces, such as schools, nursing homes, and hospitals, within one hour of operation. The detection process is composed of several steps, each requiring different technical expertise, including electrostatics, mechanical design, microfluidic and microchannel fluid flow, and biochemical analysis. The project team currently includes several students/researchers with complementary expertise. In the next year, we seek to create a fieldable device by integrating and automating the steps composing the process such that we can conduct in-field tests in hospitals, schools, and office buildings. The ultimate objective is to produce (a) an easy-to-operate product prototype and (b) sufficient data to demonstrate the value of the technology. With (a) and (b), our goal is to raise seed funds to commercialize the technology.

Position Overview: The post-doc will co-lead the team with a senior mechanical engineering student. He or she will be responsible for (i) specific technical tasks, (ii) market-related tasks, and for (iii) planning and executing field tests along with the mechanical engineering student. The technical aspects include optimizing the performance and form factor of a capillary electrophoresis system; designing and fabricating microfluidic devices, incorporating semipermeable membranes, which automatically transfer fluids among the stations of our sensor system; coordinating with other team members, with potentially different backgrounds, the integration of the different process’ steps. Market-related tasks include interviewing potential customers in different segments, engaging with government and state authorities, and performing market analysis with the assistance of a marketing specialist to identify the most promising business models. In-field tests will take place in hospitals and in office buildings in the Boston area. Planning of these tests will require coordination with the site entities, which include nurses, hospital epidemiologists, and building managers. This will be in collaboration with a mechanical engineering student who already created plans with the interested entities. The post-doc will also be expected to work with the mechanical engineering student in assisting the PI with fund raising. This position is for one year, with the potential extension to (a) either a second year within the academic setting if academic funding is available or to (b) an extra-academic setting if we are able to raise seed funds for a startup.

Qualifications: PhD degree in bioengineering, biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, or closely related fields is required. Expertise is required in fluids transport phenomena including electrokinetics (electrophoresis and electroosmosis). Expertise with nucleic acid amplification and detection techniques such as RT-qPCR is also required. Previous experience is desirable with one of the followings: engineering of capillary electrophoresis systems, engineering of electrolytic cells, engineering and fabricating microfluidic devices incorporating semipermable membranes. A general interest in entrepreneurship is highly desirable.

The Neuromodulation Research Center (NMRC) is accepting applications for multiple postdoctoral associates. Under the direction of Dr. Jerrold Vitek, the NMRC brings together an interdisciplinary team of experts from neurology, neurosurgery, neuroscience, radiology, and engineering to advance neuromodulation therapies for movement disorders. Our group is part of the Udall Center for Excellence in Parkinson’s Disease Research. In the heart of Minnesota’s ‘Medical Alley,’ our NIH funded team fosters inventive, translational research aimed at training the next generation of researchers and clinicians while providing Minnesotans with world-class care. We seek outstanding scientists interested in working in an NIH funded research program studying motor systems neurophysiology, the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease (PD), mechanisms of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in preclinical animal models of PD, and new DBS approaches. These postdoc positions offer opportunities for multidisciplinary research, training in neuroengineering and neurophysiology, and career development. The projects associated with the available positions are described below.

Basal ganglia cortical coupling and connectivity changes in Parkinson’s disease and deep brain stimulation (Job # 346366)
The major goal of this study is to assess the effect of directional DBS in the internal segment of the pallidum (GPi) and subthalamic nucleus (STN) on parkinsonian motor signs and associated changes in neuronal activity in the basal ganglia-thalamocortical motor circuit. This project is focused on the analysis of large-scale neuronal populations, characterization of circuit connectivity in PD, optimization of directional DBS, and development of closed-loop deep brain stimulation (DBS) approaches by using the MPTP non-human primate model of PD.

Neurophysiological mechanisms underlying parkinsonian motor signs (Job #346513)
The goal of this study is to identify the specific neurophysiological changes that occur within and across key nodal points of the basal ganglia-thalamocortical motor circuit with the onset of PD and how these evolve as motor signs become increasingly more severe.

Optimizing coordinated reset deep brain stimulation for Parkinson’s disease (Job #346515)
Coordinated reset deep brain stimulation (CR DBS) is a novel DBS approach that has the potential to treat parkinsonian motor symptoms with significantly less stimulation compared to traditional DBS. Utilizing the MPTP nonhuman primate model of Parkinson’s disease, this project is to optimize critical CR parameters, compare CR DBS in different targets, and understand the mechanism underlying its therapeutic effects. Specifically, this study investigates the changes in neuronal activity across multiple cortical regions, STN and GP that are associated with the therapeutic effect of CR-DBS using different cycle rates and delivered into STN or GPi.

Neuronal activity in MC and SMA during STN and GPi DBS  (Job #346514)
In this study, neuronal activity and connectivity changes across motor, premotor and prefrontal cortical areas are correlated with the development of parkinsonian motor signs, their amelioration during DBS and L-dopa therapy, and to changes in the planning, initiation and execution of movement.

The qualifications required for these positions are:

  • PhD in biomedical engineering, neuroscience or related engineering/science field
  • Experience conducting neurophysiology experiments in the human and/or animal models
  • Signal processing and data analysis
  • Programming in MATLAB
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to work collaboratively with others
  • Strong record of presenting research results through publications and conference abstracts
