IME project led by Dr Qu Jin Li was awarded the A*STAR Scientific Conference Young Researcher Collaborative Grant. The proposed work titled "Active Ultrasound Harvesters for Implanted Medical Devices" aims to design and build an ultrasound energy harvesting system for incorporating into implantable medical devices. This work has the potential to eventually bypass the use of battery as a medium for further development into a reliable and robust energy storage mechanism.
