This study section reviews SBIR and STTR grant applications involving development of instrumentation and devices for biomedical sensing, measurement, diagnosis and surgery. The work on innovative sensors may range from fundamental physical, material or chemical transduction through basic measurement principles to the design of novel instruments for clinical use. The work on innovative devices may range from basic devices, electrical/photonic devices, and materials for surgical procedural and wound healing applications.

The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether permanent or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.
