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.Learn more »
Rebekah Maffett has been awarded a prestigious NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarship for her second year of graduate studies. Nice achievement! Congrats!
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.Learn more »
A warm welcome to our new graduate student Kevin Richer, who joined us from Windsor.
We also welcome two co-op interns Bruce Kuwahara and Helene So. Congratulations to Bruce for his success in getting an NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award to work with us.
Finally, we extend our welcome to Masaaki Omura, who will be visiting our lab for 6 months. He is a PhD student from Chiba University.
Congratulations to Takuro Ishii, who has been successful in obtaining a prestigious JSPS Overseas Research Fellowship to pave his road towards becoming an independent researcher within the next few years. Fantastic news!
A quick spotlight on some of our nerd fun lately on designing new flow phantoms.
1. Stemming from our research needs in ultrasound flow imaging, we have devised a novel spiral flow phantom to study the performance of different flow estimation techniques. Appear in T-UFFC as a front cover article!
2. To support our pulse wave visualization research, we have developed a new multi-segment walled phantom that has regional variations in wall stiffness and thickeness. Have a look at our protocol that is recently published in UMB!
3. In another study, we have built a new bladder outlet obstruction model to test the feasibility of using our VPI technique in urinary flow visualization. Movie included in our UMB article!
Warm congratulations to Jason Au for his success in obtaining a prestigious CIHR Fellowship to pursue postdoctoral research with us. Well done!
Many thanks to ISTU for selecting Alfred for this milestone honor! This is definitely the best endorsement of the lab's achievements in unraveling the biophysical foundations of therapeutic ultrasound. Thank you!
Alfred is delighted to be selected as a recipient of this prestigious prize. Thank you!
