Dan Ewert, Ph.D. has been involved in Biomedical Engineering for 30 years; after receiving his B.S and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of North Dakota and his Ph.D. in Physiology from the University of North Dakota, he was a research fellow at Mayo Clinic and then spent over 27 years in Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Dakota State University, and also joined the Iron Range Engineering program at Minnesota State University. During this time, he's worked with multiple Universities, NASA, US Air Force, the Russian Space Agency, Hospitals, and investigators across the US and the world. His main area of expertise is cardiovascular engineering. He holds patents in myocardial recovery devices, multi-site leadless pacing, and maximum safe radiofrequency power transfer into the human. He has developed work in xenotransplantation and artificial hearts.
He, along with many others, has also developed new engineering education paradigms, including Minnesota State University's Iron Range Engineering, North Dakota State University Discovery-Based Learning, and now the University of North Dakota's Innovation-based learning.
