Bioengineering: Changing the Way We Heal

Event Date & Time: November 04, 2015 at 02:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Duration: 60-minutes

Bioengineering in the 21st century has advanced rapidly and dramatically, with a wide array of new treatments and devices changing patient outcomes for the better. From positive airway pressure therapies for premature infants to pressure wave therapy for arterial diagnostics, the human body can now be treated for diseases and disorders that were once untreatable, and engineering is at the center of the revolution. Join ASME.org for a discussion of the new technologies that are changing the way we all heal.

Prof. Ahmed Al-Jumaily, Aukland University of Technology

Prof. Ahmed Al-Jumaily is the founder and Director of AUT’s Institute of Biomedical Technologies. He is driven to turn ideas into real outcomes and is always looking for a challenge. It’s a characteristic he fosters among IBTec researchers and bioengineering students at AUT’s School of Engineering in general.

He is always looking at new ideas and ways of developing them; an approach that has seen his postgraduate students develop life-saving and life-enhancing respiratory and diagnostic equipment for the medical industry in New Zealand and the United States.

Prof. Al-Jumaily has supervised more than 90 successful postgraduate students in mechanical and biomedical areas and related fields from more than 26 countries and counts this as one of his greatest achievements. As well as AUT, he has taught at two American and four Middle Eastern universities and is a fellow member of numerous professional organizations including the ASME.

Dr. Y.S. Prakash, The Mayo Clinic

Dr. Y.S. Prakash is an anesthesiologist, physiologist, and electrical/biomedical engineer. His longstanding interest has been in lung diseases, with the intent of developing novel therapies and approaches to treat diseases such as asthma in children and adults (especially in women), and more recently pulmonary hypertension. Dr. Prakash works with an outstanding, interdisciplinary team of young clinician/scientists, researchers, graduate students and technicians in his Pulmonary Cell Biology Laboratory.
