Duncan J. Maitland, an associate professor at Texas A&M University in the field of Biomedical Engineering, has recently added another accomplishment to his resume with a co-editing credit on the second edition of a biomedical handbook entitled Biomedical Technology and Devices. Maitland edited the book, which is part of the Handbook Series for Mechanical Engineering published by CRC Press, alongside James E. Moore, Engineering Experiment Station Research Professor at Texas A&M. An announcement on the page of Texas A&M University’s Dwight Look College of Engineering goes on to say that:
…the book, Maitland says, details the equipment, devices and techniques used in modern medicine to diagnose, treat and monitor human illnesses. With topics ranging from blood pressure measurements to cutting-edge imaging equipment, biological tests and genetic engineering, the book navigates from simple procedures and concepts to more sophisticated and complex ones. Each section contains a description of the technique, its technical considerations, and its use according to its applications and relevant body systems, Maitland adds.
A graduate of Cleveland State University, where he completed both undergraduate and master’s degree studies, Maitland also studied at Northwestern University where he earned a Ph.D. in 1995. Maitland, who joined Texas A&M in 2008, holds the William Keeler Faculty Fellowship and conducts research into innovative treatments for cardiovascular disease with an emphasis on strokes.
