Electrical Engineer Ada Poon applies principles of electrical engineering to fight disease. Her team has created tiny electronic devices that can be wirelessly powered or recharged from outside the body. One minuscule prototype they are working on is designed to swim through a patient’s circulatory system to deliver drugs or perform tests. Another is a pacemaker smaller than a grain of rice. It can be recharged when necessary by holding a credit-card-sized power transmitter up to the chest:http://stanford.io/23t3ka9

Too small to see with the naked eye, diamondoids or nano-scale specs of diamonds, extracted from crude oil, could help develop next generation tools for energy, electronics, and molecular imaging:http://stanford.io/1XqZnM0

The majority of patients who succumb to cancer fall prey to metastatic forms of the disease. Metastasis occurs when cancer cells break free of their original tumor, travel through the blood system and land in distant organs to kindle new tumors. These new cancer settlements are what often prove deadly.

A team of Stanford researchers have developed an experimental therapy to treat metastatic cancer: http://stanford.io/1RQvWhK

Millions take more than one prescription drug at a time. But what does that do to your body? While individual drugs are rigorously tested before being approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), bioengineering Professor Russ Altman says it’s very hard to study what happens when you mix medications, and it’s traditionally not done at all.

In a recent TEDMED talk, Altman explains why that’s a problem – and how he’s using data mined from electronic medical records and patient Internet searches to better understand how drugs work together: http://stanford.io/1LMAfP5

Introduction
Welcome to the Stanford School of Engineering’s Official G+ page.
You can also find us on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/stanfordeng. We're a community of people who solve important problems by applying science with creativity and ingenuity: We're engineers! At Stanford Engineering our research and teaching is meant to educate leaders and help solve global challenges.

Since its founding in 1925, the School of Engineering has given rise to engineers who have made indelible marks on society – from driving the technological revolution to founding thousands of companies worldwide. We look forward to even more successes in the years ahead. Thank you for being part of the Stanford Engineering legacy.
