Miklos Gratzl is an associate professor of Biomedical Engineering at CWRU and director of the Laboratory for Biomedical Sensing. He received his BS and MS degrees at the University of Veszprem in Hungary, and his PhD jointly at the Technological University in Budapest, Hungary, and at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland. He conducted research in some of the best laboratories in the world before coming to CWRU. He has given about 250 scientific lectures at conferences and seminars, about half of them invited. He has about 100 papers published, of which more than 50 are from research done at CWRU. He received the Graduate Teaching Award of the Case School of Engineering jointly with Professor Dominique Durand in 2012. Research funding came from federal agencies such as NIH, NSF, and NASA as well as from private foundations such as the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Coulter Foundation. Industrial sponsored research was funded by a number of companies: among them Guidant, Vision Sensors, Advanced Biosensors, Pinnacle, Biometrix, and Apollo Medical Devices. He has many patents, and three have been licensed by companies. He is or has been on the editorial board or advisory board of a number of journals such as the Annals of Biomedical Engineering and SENSORS. His research focuses on sensor development and applications in cancer therapeutics, epithelial physiology, and cystic fibrosis, among others.
