Dr. Lee Weiss is currently a Research Professor in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). He also holds courtesy appointments in the Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, and the Biomedical Engineering departments at CMU. Dr. Weiss received his BS in Electrical Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh and his MS in Biomedical Engineering and his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from CMU.
Dr. Weiss has spent the last 40 years applying his diverse background in biomedical and electrical engineering, robotics, and advanced manufacturing to create technology-based solutions to address challenging problems in medicine, including development of devices for interventional radiology, fetal heart monitoring, cardiac pacing, angioplasty, MEMS-based drug delivery, and computer-aided surgery. His current research interests include inkjet-based biopatterning to spatially control cell function for applications in regenerative medicine, blood plasma-based bioplastics to enhance tissue repair, and bionic interfaces.. He holds 35 issued U.S. patents, has over 240 book chapters, journal papers, conference papers, abstracts, technical reports, and invited talks/workshops/seminars, and has founded several biomedical start-up companies.
Dr. Weiss provides reviews for these journals, and more: ACTA Biomateriala, Biofabrication, Computer-Aided Design, Tissue Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, and theSME Journal of Manufacturing Systems.
