March 5, 2020
Dr. Peter A. Lewin, Richard B. Beard Distinguished University Professor and Director, Biomedical Ultrasound Research and Education Center in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems, recently inducted as a Fellow to the prestigious College of Physicians of Philadelphia for his contributions to medical research via the field of biomedical ultrasonics, was featured in The College of Physicians' CEO March Newsletter. Dr. Lewin discusses how his early post-doctoral research was focused on the development of high quality, calibrated acousto-optic and piezoelectric sensors that paved the way for International Safety Standards adopted by the Food and Drug Administration. The interview also highlights how Dr. Lewin’s current PhD students are all involved in NIH-sponsored research of ultrasonically-assisted chronic wound healing, and how he is part of a diversified research team that has developed a holistic, or ‘theranostic,’ approach to chronic wound healing that permits the attending physician to nimbly change the standard care, if needed.
