Superheroes of Science

Nov 5, 2020

Matthew Ward, Research Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine, joins us this week to discuss his work with medical devices (neurostimulators) to understand how to communicate with the nervous system. By gaining a better understanding of how, where, and when to stimulate the nervous system, Ward believes that pain relief, inflammation regulation, and even regulation of the autoimmune system will be possible without the use of pharmaceuticals.
