EMBC 2018
 1 Page Research Poster Paper DEADLINE is April 18, 2018 
1 Page Research Posters
At least one author of the paper must be registered at the appropriate full conference rate (Member, Non-member, Student member, Student non-member) in order to upload the final paper. If complete payment of a registration fee is not received, authors will not be able to proceed with uploading their final manuscript. While any author of the paper may be registered, only the designated "corresponding author" may upload the final paper. Once a manuscript has been uploaded, the registration fees cannot be refunded. Please be sure that the attending author completes payment and uploads the final paper. This means that they must be the "corresponding author".

 Two new funding announcements from the
Translational Research Institute for Space Health

A year and a half ago, the Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) was stood up with the imperative purpose of funding radical, disruptive science and technologies that could be translated to protect and optimize human health and performance during long-duration, deep space exploration missions.

Different from most grant organizations, TRISH is focused on very early stage (needs proof of concept, for example) and very late stage (ready to go to market, for example) research; we do not fund incremental scientific research.

Working closely with NASA's Human Research Program, the Baylor College of Medicine led institute, a consortium that includes Caltech and MIT, TRISH has already funded ground-breaking technologies designed to keep astronauts safe. 
Lecture by Prof.Julius Georgiou titled "Microelectronic Systems
for Improved Quality of Life"

The Biomedical Simulations and Imaging Laboratory and Electronics Laboratory of the School of ECE, NTUA, and IEEE Greece Section will host a lecture of Associate Professor Julius Georgiou (University of Cyprus) regarding "Microelectronic Systems for Improved Quality of Life", on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, 15:00, at the Conference Hall, New ECE Building.

Microelectronic revolutions come in waves that are driven by necessity. Currently, the aging population is creating a need for various kinds of electronic systems to improve their quality of life. These include the restoration of lost functionality via electronic implants, better health screening technology and non-invasive monitoring in the home environment. This talk presents work that has been done towards addressing these needs, whether it be through the development of new required building blocks or through the development of more complex systems that combine custom built hardware and software. In particular the talk covers work done towards developing a vestibular implant for balance restoration, a single chip low-power imager for a bionic eye, a cancer screening capsule for detecting early-stage carcinomas in the small intestine and a bio-inspired acoustic scene analysis system.
IEEE- EMBS Conference on Biomedical Engineering
& Sciences (IECBES)

The IEEE EMBS Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Sciences (IECBES) is the flagship conference of the IEEE EMBS Malaysia Chapter. The conference is at the forefront of biomedical engineering and science conferences in Malaysia since its inception in 2010 and  2018 marks the fifth installation. 

Held biennially, the conference has been featured in the fourth quarter of the year, normally being held in the month of December. IECBES has been attended by notable keynote speakers and participants from around the globe.  Prof. Nigel Lovell, EMBS President 2017-2018 has been supported us as our keynote speaker since IECBES2010.

Nuclear Imaging Enters a New Era
Nuclear medicine has taken major steps forward and is now on the precipice of yet another advance that could begin to have a real impact on cancer care within the year. Nuclear imaging is entering a new era, one that combines not only the diagnosis and tracking of cancer, but also the delivery of cancer treatment. Dubbed theranostics, this multi-pronged approach is made possible by new radiopharmaceuticals that bind to tumor cells, penetrate them, and kill them. These highly specific and very effective agents are also designed to target some of the most challenging cancers, such as gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, which are difficult to diagnose and treat, and metastatic castration-resistant prostate tumors, which often have few if any treatment options available. 

EMBS would love to hear from you....

Please send any chapter news, events or happenings, call for papers, distinguished lecturer visits, awards received by members, etc. to the EMBS Content Form for inclusion in next week's newsletter. We look forward to hearing from you
