US Patent Application: HIGH RESOLUTION MULTI-FUNCTION AND CONFORMAL ELECTRONICS DEVICE FOR DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS

One of the privileges of doing cutting edge biomedical research is the opportunity to invent new technology or application that can quickly be translated in to a clinically available product for the benefit of all who may need it. I feel fortunate to have that opportunity working with Dr. Igor Efimov in his lab at George Washington University (GWU). As such, with the guidance from GWU technology commercialization office, we have filed for a US patent. On one side, patents guarantee the return of an inventor’s investment and profit and, on the other side, ensure availability — by patent disclosure — of the invention for the society when the patent terminates. As a scientist, I am more driven by the need to contribute to society, and less so to make a profit. Hopefully, this is the first step in that direction.
