Theodore (Ted) H. Kehl, Professor, Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin some time in the middle ages and joined the Medical School faculty just a tad later. He was one of the founders of the Computer Science Department and has directed a computer development laboratory in the Medical School.

His interests lie in hardware systems, with particular interest in real-time systems as applied to medical research. More recently he has been involved in VLSI CAD research and helped to establish the UW/NW VLSI Consortium. His medical school laboratory has built over 20 minicomputers used by some 10 medical school laboratories, and is currently completing a new multi-microprocessor. In the near future he hopes to use VLSI to build medically useful devices, as well as to construct a ROM that cheats.
