Seward Rutkove, MD
Scientific Founder, Harvard Medical School Professor; Chief, Neuromuscular Division at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Dr. Rutkove began developing the underlying concepts of electrical impedance myography (EIM) as a tool to assess neuromuscular disease in 1999. Working with collaborators at Northeastern University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dr. Rutkove developed and designed basic EIM systems for the assessment of a variety of disorders and was able to show that the technique was especially sensitive to disease progression in ALS. In 2011, Dr. Rutkove was awarded the $1,000,000 Biomarker Challenge Prize from the organization Prize4Life for showing that EIM could help reduce the cost of a clinical trial by more than half.
