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!
Our lab plans to recruit another few graduate students in 2019. Application deadline for Fall 2019 admission is January 7, 2019. If you are familiar with ultrasound, we could be a great home for your research training!Learn more »
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!
A new special issue (guest edited by Alfred) has now been published in the January 2017 issue of the IEEE Transactions of Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control. Hereby disseminating the best practices of various essential research protocols in biomedical ultrasound investigations!Learn more »
In a series of journal articles, Alfred's lab has summarized their recent findings on the development of new vector flow estimation techniques and ultrasound-compatible carotid flow phantoms. The group also collaborated on the design of 3D flow estimators. Also check out Alfred's co-authored tutorial on ultrasound vector flow imaging (Part I, Part II)!Learn more »
Alfred is extremely honored to be selected for this international award. The citation for his award is "for impactful inventions in ultrasound flow imaging and key discoveries in therapeutic ultrasound biophysics".
It is a very prestigious token of recognition for Alfred's past 9 years of post-PhD research! Thank you!
