Michael R. Neuman joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Michigan Technological University in August, 2003, as Professor and Chairman, the latter ending in 2010. Previously he held the Herbert Herff Chair of Excellence at the Memphis Joint Program in Biomedical Engineering. He served for thirty-two years on the faculty at Case Western Reserve University in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Reproductive Biology and Obstetrics and Gynecology. He received the PhD in electrical engineering in 1966 from Case Institute of Technology and the MD from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in 1974. His research interests have been in the application of microelectronic technology to clinical health care problems emphasizing perinatal medicine. In 1989 Dr. Neuman joined the NSF Engineering Research Center for Emerging Cardiovascular Technologies, a multi university consortium based at Duke University where he and Professor Richard Buck of the University of North Carolina co-directed the biomedical sensors thrust. Dr. Neuman was President of the International Society on Biotelemetry from 1984 through 1988 and Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering from 1989 through 1996. He also edited the international journal, Physiological Measurement from 2002 through 2007, and he was Editor in Chief of the biomedical engineering magazine, IEEE Pulse through 2013. He is continuing his scientific publishing activities as Editor in Chief of the IEEE Reviews in Biomedical Engineering and the IEEE Life Science Newsletter. He has published 172 scientific papers, 250 conference presentations, and holds five patents. Dr. Neuman also serves as Chair of the Board of Directors of Portage Hospital, LLC, a local community hospital.
