Kgpian Sajal Ghoshal Helps Develop Healthcare Technology for Astronauts

Advanced TeleSensors, led by Kgpian Sajal Ghoshal, has developed a non-intrusive cardiac monitor that will be used to regulate astronauts’ health in space. In 2017, Ghoshal joined the team of developers leading the fundraising initiatives. He was fascinated by the new developments and government and private investments in space. At ATS, Ghoshal led a fundraising effort of $2 million that achieved convenience and economy in product design. For future developments Ghoshal is aiming for — wait you might have seen it in the Star Trek series — triple medical tricorder.  

Are Medicine and Biomedical Sciences the Future of the IITs?

When IIT Kharagpur introduced the idea of medical education in 2007, it was novelty in an education system that has a global reputation for its excellence in science, technology, and management. While the medical program is yet to begin, OPD services have been initiated at the superspeciality hospital of IIT Kharagpur serving an extensive catchment area across several states. Kgp paved the way for making another transformation — medical education at the IITs.
