Seminar: Health Consumer Operated IT for Mental Health & Lifestyle e-Screening and e-Therapy

As populations become more IT literate there is tremendous potential in the health consumer as a direct user of health IT systems. The health consumer can answer many questions about themselves, functioning as electronic screening for feedback to themselves and to clinicians.

3D scaffolds cellularised with human vascular cells for complex culture and maturation in bioreactors: applications in regenerative medicine and beyond

In the last 50 years biomaterials, prostheses and implants have saved and prolonged millions of human lives. Today, nanothechnology, nanomaterials and surface modification provide us with a novel vision of for the use of biomaterials, allowing us to foresee strategies to solve the upcoming organ shortage.
Seminar - 2016/10/13 - Intra-body sensor networks

Seminar – 2016/10/13 – Intra-body sensor networks

This seminar will cover the latest findings of how galvanically coupled weak electrical currents can be used in place of over the air RF waves to connect the implants, with great energy savings for data transmission within tissues; including the channel model, energy efficient communication solutions for implants, experimental setup and applications.

Seminar - 2016/5/31 - Microwave-Ultrasound Hybrid Systems in Imaging and Implantable Medical Devices

Seminar – 2016/5/31 – Microwave-Ultrasound Hybrid Systems in Imaging and Implantable Medical Devices

Our group works on the design of new medical devices and concepts that combine advanced electronics with new physical interactions to address challenges in imaging, sensing, and implantable devices. This talk will focus on two of the active areas: i) bedside medical imaging with portable and low-cost systems, and ii) minimally-invasive implantable medical devices (IMDs) for monitoring and modulating local physiology
Outlier detection for clinical monitoring and alerting

Seminar – 17/05/2016 – Outlier detection for clinical monitoring and alerting

Register now Title: Outlier detection for clinical monitoring and alerting Speaker: Prof. Milos Hauskrecht Professor of Computer Science University of Pittsburgh Abstract: Outlier detection has been successfully applied to identification of unusual data instances, unusual behaviors and outcomes. In this work, I present an outlier detection framework for clinical monitoring and alerting that aims to […]

Seminar – 11/05/2016 – Lauren D. Black – Extracellular matrix derived signalling in cardiac development, regeneration and repair

Dr. Black's research interests lie in understanding the biophysical signaling mechanisms responsible for the development of healthy and diseased myocardium inclusive of mechanical stress/strain, electrical stimulation, and cell-cell/ cell-matrix interactions. The ultimate goal of his research is to design and develop new methods for repairing diseased or damaged myocardium.
