David Camarillo's Biography
David Camarillo is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at Stanford University. Dr. Camarillo holds a B.S.E from Princeton University in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, a Ph.D. from Stanford University in Mechanical Engineering, and worked in the medical device industry before joining the faculty. He is an expert in instrument design and biomechanics whose research interests include mild traumatic brain injury, infertility, and robotics for minimally invasive surgery. He directs a National Institute of Health (NIH) funded laboratory working to solve these problems.

Abstract: What David is Currently Working On
Traumatic brain injury ranges from a deadly blow to a “mild” concussion.  Helmets have been in use in military, sports, and other high risk activities for almost 5000 years, but how effective are they at preventing brain trauma?  Our research is showing that classical helmets have fundamental limitations and that entirely new approaches are needed to protecting the brain.  I will discuss what happens to the head and brain during trauma, why helmets aren’t effective, and what hope there is for better protection of our children.
