Dr. Robert Stadler

PhD in Medical Engineering, MS in Electrical Engineering, Logos Research Associate

Rob Stadler is author of The Scientific Approach to Evolution: What They Didn’t Teach You in Biology. He received a PhD in medical engineering from the Harvard/MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. As a scientist in the medical device industry for over 20 years, he has contributed to cardiac devices that are implanted in millions of patients worldwide. He has been elected fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biomedical Engineers, has obtained more than 140 US patents, and has 20 peer-reviewed publications.
