Anirudh Chaturvedi

Fellow

Anirudh Chaturvedi has worked in the field of innovative medical devices from breath testing for cancers to feto-maternal monitoring tools. He is currently the Co-Founder of Brun Health based in New Delhi and working to simplify the process of labour monitoring in resource constrained settings to hopefully reduce the number of stillbirths across India. Anirudh received his bachelors degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Mumbai and went on to complete his masters in Biomedical Engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. He worked briefly as an intern with Siemens Healthcare India where he learned all about medical imaging and was awarded for his performance. His research thesis during his masters was in the field of Neural Engineering where he developed a wireless microelectrode delivery mechanism to enable deep brain stimulation in rats. His passion for the past few years has been in the revolutionary field of breath diagnostics. At Menssana Research, Inc. he worked extensively with Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry to develop a device to identify volatile organic compounds in human breath that could serve as biomarkers for diseases like Tuberculosis and Breast Cancer. His point of care device called the BreathLink has been tested in multiple clinical studies and now has CE mark approval. The "6 minute breath test for Tuberculosis" was even tested in India and he hopes to scale up the technology to serve the masses very soon. As a Stanford India Biodesign fellow, he has now teamed up with like-minded individuals to come up with the next million dollar idea for a billion people. He is a member of the Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society, a competitive swimmer and captained his college water polo team.
