Events at Linköping University

25 April 2018

Docent lecture: Evren Özarslan - Signatures of brain microstructure in diffusion MRI 

10:30 am – 12:00 pm Campus US, Department of Biomedical Engeneering, floor 13, IMT1

After introducing the basics of diffusion MRI, I will describe how the technique can be employed to address important problems such as mapping neural connectivity and delineating microstructure in the brain. In the latter part of the talk, I will discuss recent advances on the influence of the geometry of neural projections on the observed diffusion MRI signal.

PhD Seminar: Martin Hultman - Microcirculatory imaging using programmable electronics and machine learning

10:15 am – 11:30 am Campus US, Department of Biomedical Engeneering, floor 13, IMT1

Multi-exposure laser speckle contrast imaging (MELSCI) is a non-invasive technique for measuring the microcirculation in superficial tissue. By using images at multiple exposure times many advantages are gained compared to conventional single-exposure LSCI, but this also comes with new difficulties and higher demands on both hardware and algorithms. In this talk, I will present a new MELSCI technique using programmable electronics and machine learning, which overcomes many of these challenges.

4 May 2018

Dissertation in Medical Science: Lisa Hjelmfors

13:00 pm – 15:00 pm K1, Kåkenhus, Campus Norrköping

Lisa Hjelmfors, Division of Nursing Science, Department of Social and Welfare Studies (ISV), defends her doctoral dissertation ”Communication about the Heart Failure Trajectory in Patients, their Families and Health Care Professionals”. Opponent is Professor Åsa Hörnsten from Umeå University.


Public disputation in Computational Mathematics: Markus Wahlsten

13:15 pm – 15:00 pm Ada Lovelace, B Building, entrance 27, ground floor, Campus Valla

Markus Wahlsten, at the Department of Mathematics, defends his thesis entitled "Uncertainty Quantification for Wave Propagation and Flow Problems with Random Data". Opponent is Rémi Abgrall, Professor, Universität Zürich. The dissertation is held in English and is open to the public.


24 May 2018

IMT Seminar: Rolf Saager - Spectral Imaging in the Spatial Frequency Domain

10:15 am – 11:30 am Campus US, Department of Biomedical Engeneering, floor 13, IMT1

In this talk, I will present an overview of spatial frequency domain spectroscopy (SFDS), how it approaches the challenge of differentiating structures within compound tissues, such as skin, its current limitations, as well as discuss a few unmet clinical needs this non-invasive approach may provide unique insight.

PhD Seminar: William Lövfors - Mechanistic modeling on a phosphoproteome level – A possibility for faster drug discovery

10:15 am – 11:30 am Campus US, Department of Biomedical Engineering, floor 13, IMT1

Mechanistic models are typically limited in scale, but are greatly descriptive of the system they are ment to replicate. Now, we are developing a method of creating mechanistic models for large scale data. Such models could then be used to search for novel drug targets efficiently and cheaply.


LiU Internal Calendar

The calendar on the LiU website is currently undergoing redesign, and thus some activities at LiU may not be included in the above. It is, therefore, a good idea to search for activities in the previous version of the calendar. This contains both external and internal activities.
