ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Two University of Michigan engineers are part of a national team that is using a $10 million federal grant to protect medical devices and hospital computer systems from viruses and other malware.
The university says associate professors Kevin Fu and Michael Baileys are participating in a 5-year Trustworthy Health and Wellness project, financed by the National Science Foundation.
Fu and Bailey say they will establish methods to scientifically study the extent of malware in hospital networks. They say it's important to get detailed data and not to simply rely on anecdotal reports.
Fu says that malicious software "can interrupt the function of medical devices, affecting the quality of patient care."
