Harold Monbouquette, Ph.D., is a Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. His group conducts research focused on sensors and diagnostics, as well as the application of nanotechnology to these areas. He has been instrumental in creating an implantable microprobe with neurochemical sensing sites that exhibit rapid response times (<100 msec) while retaining high selectivity, in incorporating multiple sensing modalities on the same probe, in developing a PDMS microstamping method to deposit enzyme to targeted microelectrode sites, and in fabricating an on-probe reference site that results in 60-70% reduction in sensor noise.
Paul M. Macey is a neuroscientist who has worked at UCLA since 1999. He is an Associate Professor of Nursing, and serves in the School of Nursing Administration as Director of Information Technology and Innovation, and Chief Innovation Officer. Dr. Macey completed a degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, where he focused on bringing engineering approaches to the analysis of breathing signals recorded from infants during sleep. He started at UCLA in a post-doctoral position in the Department of Neurobiology, and continued as and Assistant then Associate Researcher. Dr. Macey then joined the School of Nursing and Brain Research Institute as a faculty member. Dr. Macey teaches in the undergraduate Nursing program, and serves on various faculty committees.
