Dr. Stephen Lambert, an associate professor of medicine, was a featured guest this week on WMFE-FM (90.7) Science Friday, giving the audience insight into the future of prosthetics. The show will be broadcast from 2-4 p.m. on Friday, March 31.

The popular weekly science talk show airs over public radio stations nationwide. The show explores science and technology in fun ways, attracting thousands of listeners. Its Facebook page alone has more than 644,000 likes.

Dr. Lambert is one of the lead faculty members creating a cluster focused on advancing prosthetics at UCF. Once fully staffed, this group of experts from diverse disciplines will work on developing the engineering and circuitry necessary to connect the human body directly into smart prosthetics to enhance human capabilities.

He was joined on stage at Orlando’s Bob Carr Theater by Albert Manero, founder of UCF-based nonprofit Limbitless Solutions, and 12-year-old Annika Emmert. Emmert was the recipient of a free prototype 3-D printed arm that Limbitless Solutions made two years ago.

Science Friday and its host travel three or four times a year to tape the show, and this was their first visit to Orlando.
