Professional Bio

Dr. Couderc is a biomedical engineer who obtained his PhD degree with highest honors from the French National Institute of Applied Sciences in Lyon, France in 1997. He was appointed Research Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Cardiology Department of Strong Memorial Hospital, University of Rochester Medical Center, NY. In 2002, he graduated as a Master of Business and Administration from the Simon School of Business of Rochester, NY. He is the Assistant Director of the Heart Research Follow-up Program Laboratory. Dr. Couderc has a position of Chief Technology Officer of iCardiac Technology Inc.

He dedicated the past ten years to quantitative electrocardiography focusing on the development of novel techniques for the analysis of the ventricular repolarization from the surface ECG in human and in various animal models. Dr. Couderc is the author or co-author of numerous publications in computational science and engineering, numerical analysis, and computer science applied to electrophysiological signals. He is currently a member of the editorial boards of the Annals of Non-Invasive Electrocardiology, he is holding a SGE position at the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research for the US Food and Drug Administration. Dr. Couderc is principal investigator and a co-investigator in several federal-funded research grants. He has been invited for lectures at universities, laboratories, and industrial research centers in U.S and Europe involving consulting experience with industry and national agencies (NIH and EPA).
