BIE Project 1
Project title
Understanding the success of Amiodarone, the leading anti- arrhythmic drug. Project description
Over the last few decades, several cardiac drugs have been withdrawn from the market after reports of adverse, often fatal, side effects. Often these drugs were intended to treat cardiac maladies. However, not only did they fail to treat the conditions, but they caused harmful disturbances to the electrical activity of the heart, often with disastrous consequences. The key reason for these unfortunate occurrences is a poor understanding of cardiac electrophysiology under conditions that are altered by the presence of a drug. Nonetheless, Amiodarone has emerged as one of the very few safe options to treat a variety of common arrhythmias. However, the reasons behind its success, its safety in particular, are not fully Understanding why Amiodarone is effective and safe and why some other drugs are not is important because it is the first step towards a more efficient and safer drug development process. This project aims at providing a systematic and quantitative characterization of the effects of Amiodarone on cardiac electrophysiology. Experimental data on the individual effects of Amiodarone on the various proteins will be taken from published literature. The data will be quantified and combined into existing computational models of cardiac electrophysiology.

Project title
Control of cellular contractility with an external drug
Project description

This project entails molecular cloning of a novel protein module into the kinase domain of myosin light chain kinase. The recombinant kinase will be inactive, unless a drug called rapamycin is added. Transfection and expression of the recombinant myosin kinase in mammalian cells in culture will provide a tool to activate actomyosin contractility on demand by adding rapamycin to the media. This will be tested in live cell imaging experiments with cells expressing actin and myosin reporters. Dr. Ronen ZAIDEL-BAR Any other information/

BIE Project 5

Project title
The ‘Three-Pointer' Project
Project description

In NBA history, the three-pointer field goal percentage can range from 0% to as high as 53.6%. With the three-point shooting leaders fluctuating around an average 46.6 + 4.2% over the past three decades, it is apparent that the human capability in shooting three- pointer has hardly evolved. This project aims to push this human limit by understanding the biomechanics of basketbal players scoring three-pointer shots by col ecting data on bal -hand contact force, joint kinematics and muscle-brain activation profiles. The data col ected wil be useful for future development of trainer orthotics that can train the player towards precise shooting posture and muscle activations, and eventually improve the player's three-pointer performance significantly in the court.

BIE Project 6
Project title
A wearable sensor system for continuous respiratory monitoring
Project description

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is one of the leading causes of death in the world. Continuous monitoring of the respiratory and other bio signals is important for elderly patients at home as well patients under critical care. Current respiratory sensors for clinical use are bulky and obstructive. In this project, we propose to use a wearable sensor suite consists of IMU sensor and ECG sensor for respiratory monitoring. Data from the sensor suite wil be routed wirelessly to either a PC or smartphone for analysis. Alert will be sent to healthcare professionals or family members when abnormal patterns are detected. The effort of this project includes both hardware design and software development. Clinical experts from local hospitals will provide clinical input for the development of the project. Students with ECE or bioinstrumentation background are most suitable for this project. Asst Prof YU Haoyong Name of Collaborator(s) in Dr. Soumyadipta Acharya

BIE Project 7

Project title
Wearable sensors for motor ability quantification for patients post Project description
Stroke is leading cause of adult disability. Rehabilitation through physical therapy is the main effective means for patients to regain motor functions. The rehabilitation process is a long process and spans from hospital to home settings. Effective therapy must be guided with accurate assessment of the motor function of the patients. Current clinical assessment is based on observation of patents' motor behavior using standardized clinical rating scales. However, these scales are not accurate and vary across clinicians. The aim of this project is to develop a wearable sensor system for continuous motor function measurement and monitoring for stroke patients at home settings. The data from the sensors wil be transmitted wireless to a PC or smart phone for analysis, display, and further transmission to therapists. The task of this project involves sensor selection, interface electronics design, algorithms development and software design, and system validation. Students with either ECE or Bioengineering background who are interested in biomechanics and bio-instrumentation are most suitable for this project. Depending on his or her preference, the student can focus on either device development or the algorithm development. Asst Prof YU Haoyong Name of Col aborator(s) in Dr. Soumyadipta Acharya

BIE Project 8 (for students from Johns Hopkins University)

Project title
Biomechanical Analysis of the Design of Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (UKA) Project description
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative condition indicating inflammation and then destruction of a joint that causes pain and swelling which could affect a person's daily life. A common surgical treatment is the Total Knee Replacement (TKR), where the cartilage in a patient's knee is replaced. However, OA in the knee usually first occurs at the medial compartment of the joint. If the lateral compartment of the knee is healthy, a partial knee replacement known as the Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (UKR) can be performed to preserve the healthy bone and soft tissues. With the preservation of the bone and soft tissues, UKR can provide a more natural knee motion compared to a TKR. Although some good results and clinical outcomes were reported for UKR, the survivorship of UKR is still inferior to TKR. Failures of the UKR in wear and aseptic loosening were resulted from eccentric loading at the knee joint. Fracture of the UHMWPE tibial bearings and persistent pain experienced by patients after UKR were also reported. The objective of the project is to characterize the mechanical performance of the fixed and mobile UKR implants by finite element analysis (FEA). Finite element models of the knee joint after UKR will be created and simulated with physiological loads at the knee joint. Parametric studies of the change in UKR implant designs and its influence on the proximal tibial bone strains will be performed. The student wil also interact with the orthopaedic surgeons and bioengineers in the local hospital. Dr CHONG Yok Rue, Desmond Any other information/

Science Studies 2/2009 Lessening the Evils, Online: Embodied molecules and the politics of hope in Parkinson's disease Annette Leibing Virtual communities are an especially rich subject for social scientists studying the dynamic and multifaceted ways that groups negotiate health-related knowledge. What are the forces shaping the health information that virtual community members circulate, evaluate and incorporate? This article explores health information circulating on an international, though mainly North American, email list for people suffering from Parkinson's disease. The dual purpose of the list—of support and knowledge exchange—is shaped by a particular politics of hope, which channels knowledge and projects it into the future. This politics of hope is, at least partly, based on what I want to call "embodied molecules"—the effectiveness of medications created by the list's "cyberbody." Cyberbodies, in this article, are created through the virtual community members' embodied learning.
