Well done, Dr. Billy Yiu! What an amazing performance he has had today at his PhD defense. The committee was highly impressed by his wide range of accomplishments. Totally nailed it! Congrats!
Our lab will be leading an NSERC-funded multidisciplinary research platform specializing in next-generation innovations in ultrasonics. Join N-GENIUS! This will be a great home to develop your research credentials.
At the 2019 Acoustical Society of America Spring Meeting held in Louisville, Billy Yiu has won 1st place in the Biomedical Acoustics Best Student Paper Competition. What an excellent achievement! Congrats and well done!
If you wish to engage in the next generation of innovations in ultrasonics, we could be a great home for your research training! Application deadline for Spring 2020 admission is October 1, 2019.
Rebekah Maffett has been awarded a prestigious NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarship for her second year of graduate studies. Nice achievement! Congrats!
Want to join our fun on designing flow phantoms? We have built walled phantoms of urethra, carotid bifurcation, and vessels with regional stiffness variations, as well as wall-less phantoms with omnidirectional flow and patient-specific geometries.
Our best practices in designing platforms to study the cellular bioeffects of LIPUS and sonoporation have now been published. Feel free to build similar platforms to study bioeffects such as ER stress, morphological repression, and cell-cycle arrest.
Ever wondered if flow instability can be visualized in flow diagnostics? Our new DUBI technique may provide an answer. It can track unstable flow at 10,000 fps. This is another imaging innovation after our previous success with VPI and CESI.
Our 2nd-gen high-frame-rate imaging platform is now ready! This software-based platform, with live imaging functionality that our 1st-gen platform didn't have, was done in collaboration with US4US in Poland. It has uniquely integrated our GPU innovations and our CESI technique.
