Alfred is truly humbled to be named a Steacie Fellow by NSERC. It's time to roll up our sleeves to help grow the ultrasound innovation space!!!
If you wish to engage in the next generation of innovations in ultrasonics, our lab could be a great home for your research training! Please apply by January 10, 2022 for Fall 2022 admission.
Billy Yiu has been promoted to Research Assistant Professor at UW Engineering! LITMUS is now transforming into a multi-PI group. Lots of exciting activities coming up in the lab!
Robyn Klassen has been selected as a recipient of the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology Fellowship for her work on ultrasound-mediated drug delivery and related biophysics investigations. Stay tuned for her presentation at this Fall's WIN celebration event!
Huge success for our lab in the scholarship arena this year! Congrats to William Pitman for his success in winning a Canada Graduate Scholarship in this round of competition. Di Xiao, Robyn Klassen, YanYan Tran, and David Hoskin have also been successful in their Ontario Graduate Scholarship applications. Well done everyone!
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.
