KurtLab is pleased to announce that we have been awarded $35,000 for our “Real-time Concussion Monitoring in Contact Sports through Wearable Sensors” proposal by the New Jersey Health Foundation. This project will combine state-of-the-art wearable sensors with machine-learning algorithms to learn and predict neuromechanical responses in soccer players. This one year award will sponsor this research project from February 2020 through February 2021.
Dr. Kurt gave BMEII’s 5th Annual Medical Imaging and BioEngineering named lecture at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The talk titled “A Look into the Brain Through the Lens of Mechanics” gave insight into how mechanics principles can help us understand the function and health of the brain.
Stevens Institute of Technology launched the new Center for Neuromechanics in the Schaefer School of Engineering & Science. Dr. Mehmet Kurt founded this new center and will serve as its director. This new facility is dedicated to applying the fundamental principles of mechanics and engineering to understand the function, structure, and health of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system.
