Chief, Biomedical Physics & Engineering, Assist Attending
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Paul Frisch is currently an Associate Attending in the Department of Medical Physics and the Chief of Biomedical Engineering at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. He is currently a HIMSS Fellow and serves on technical committees and advisory boards including IEEE Committee on RFID, Health Systems Solutions, Cardiopulmonary Corp and serves as the President & Chief Technical Officer for the RFID in Healthcare Consortium and President of the Intelligent Health Association. Responsibilities include: 1: The investigation of new and evolving technologies and their potential integration into clinical applications to enhance patient care, safety and satisfaction within the medical center. These have focused on 3D imaging and reconstruction, rapid prototyping / 3D printing of anatomically accurate bone and tissue segments for reconstructive surgery; development of robot assist surgical devices; and connectivity and integrated solutions between medical devices, information systems, wireless sensors providing patient centric care and information delivery. 2: The management of the medical center’s existing technologies and equipment, providing repair, calibration and preventive maintenance services to ensure optimized operation, enhanced patient safety and regulatory compliance. 3: Translational research: Current areas of research include the study of electromagnetic field induced gene expression. This work focuses on the identification of promoter sequences sensitive to specific electromagnetics fields which could be used as gene therapy initiators. Previous experiences include research in human biodynamics investigating human response to transitory acceleration, such as crash-impact and aircraft ejection and robotic applications in pharmaceutical development. Paul Frisch has a Doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering from the State University of New York at Binghamton and Masters and Bachelors degrees in Electrical Engineering from the State University of
