Dhruv Seshadri joined the Department of Bioengineering in August 2023 as an assistant professor. He received his B.S. in polymers science and engineering in 2014, M.S. and PhD degrees in biomedical engineering in 2018 and 2022 respectively from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. His research involves the development, validation, and translation of wearable technology, bioelectronic devices, and digital therapeutics targeting human health and performance. This research has been dissemianted in journals such as NPJ Digital Medicine, Circulation, Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, and IEEE and reported in news outlets such as CNN, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, Wired UK, and Nature Outlook. His research has been funded by grants from the Department of Defense, Northwestern University, National Science Foundation, and American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine for developing, translating, and commercializing wearable technology. The current research of his group focuses on synthesizing soft materials for conformable electronics, fabricating microelectromechanical systems and electroceutical platforms, and performing pre-clinical or clinical studies to validate their effectiveness all with an emphasis on bio-inspired and bio-integrated technologies in areas such as but not limited to orthopedics, sports medicine, human performance, cardiology, wound healing, and neuromuscular disease. These efforts are all highly multidisciplinary spanning expertise and collaborations in engineering and medicine.
