Creating Biomedical Technologies to Improve Health

RESEARCH FUNDING

Bio-Electromagnetic Technologies

This program supports the development of technologies that use static or dynamic electromagnetic fields for sensing, imaging, or therapeutic effects.

Emphasis
The emphasis is on increasing the sensitivity, spatial/temporal resolution, efficacy, or safety of bioelectromagnetic devices through the development of novel hardware, method of operation, or pre-/post-processing techniques for single modalities or the combination of multiple modalities.

Support
This program may support the development of magnetic particle imaging, electrical impedance tomography, electroencephalography, magnetoencephalography, electromagnetic-field-induced hyperthermia/ablation, and microwave/terahertz imaging, for example.
Related programs are MRI, Nuclear Medicine, Optical Imaging and Spectroscopy, Ultrasound, and X-ray Electron and Ion Beam.
