Keynote Speakers
Dr. Alan Murray

Alan Murray is Professor of Cardiovascular Physics and Strategic Research Advisor in the Medical Faculty and Professor in the School of Engineering, both at Newcastle University in the UK. Before moving to Newcastle he studied and trained in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Alan is active in Translational Research bringing together Engineering and Medicine.
He has published over 300 research papers, including in Nature and Lancet, with co-author researchers in 19 countries worldwide. His primary areas of research are in the development of devices and measurement techniques of clinical value in cardiovascular medicine and surgery. More...

Speech Title: Medical Device Safety

Abstract: Medical devices have made a huge contribution to clinical achievements in medicine and surgery. They enable diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to be undertaken safely. Many of today’s clinical procedures were not possible or even envisaged a few decades ago. Patients can now hope to live to an active old age. More...


Dr. Gari Clifford

Dr. Clifford is currently the interim Chair of Biomedical Informatics at Emory and an Associate Professor in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech. After training in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics, he received a DPhil in Neural Networks and Biomedical Engineering from the University of Oxford, United Kingdom. He received postdoctoral research training from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology when he later became a Principal Research Scientist, managing the development of the world's largest open access critical care database (MIMIC II).

Speech Title: The Problems with (and Solutions for) Digital Cardiology

Abstract: Perhaps the biggest problem with attempts to diagnose patients via automated ECG analysis is the lack of accurate labels on which to train data. PhysioNet (www.physionet.org) has for many years set the gold standard in electrocardiographic (and other) data, leading to the FDA requiring reporting on PhysioNet data. Never-the-less, the last 18 years of PhysioNet/Computing in Cardiology (CinC) Challenges (www.physionet.org/challenge/) and related work have demonstrated that standard expert labels are far more error prone than would be expected by such an established diagnostic art form.

Dr. Eddie Ng Yin Kwee

Assoc. Professor in MAE; Snr. Hall Fellow. Ng obtained a B.Eng (CL I) from Uni. of Newcastle upon Tyne; Ph.D at Cambridge Univ. with a Cambridge Commonwealth Scholarship; PG Diploma in Teaching Higher Edu., NIE-NTU. He is an invited keynotes speaker for more than 15 international scientific confs./workshops. He is active in offering consulting services & a fellow of SAF-NTU Academy. 15 of his thermal imaging papers have been adopted as references in Singapore Standard (SS 582: 2013) and ISO/IEC 80601-2-59: 2008. He is also presently serving as panel member for the Biomedical Standards Committee, Singapore.
Speech Title: Enhanced Statistical Parameters for Renograms as New Quantitative Indices in Differentiating Renal Obstruction

Abstract: Renography is a renal imaging technique that utilizes radioisotopes and is commonly used for evaluating renal functions. Here, we studied the feasibility of using basic statistical parameters derived from renogram, “mean count value (MeanCV)” and “median count value (MedianCV)”, as novel indices in the diagnosis of renal obstruction through diuresis renography. Both MeanCV and MedianCV data derived from renograms with duration of 25 min could successfully separate the diagnosis into unobstructed and obstructed classes. More...


Dr. Serge Cosnier

Dr. Serge Cosnier is Member of the European Academy of Humanities, Letters and Sciences, Research Director at CNRS and head of the Department of Molecular Chemistry at the Grenoble Alpes University (France). His activity is focused on electrochemical biosensors, biofuel cells, electrogenerated polymers, molecular electrochemistry and carbon nanotubes.. Dr Cosnier has authored over 340 publications (h-index 56), 2 books and 18 book chapters and he was the President of the French Group of Bioelectrochemistry (2001-2014). In 2009, he received the Katsumi Niki Prize of the International Society of Electrochemistry and was appointed as Fellow of this Society in 2010. In 2013, Dr Cosnier became a member of the Academia Europaea. Finally, he is the recipient of the 2016 China-France Chemistry Award from the Chinese Chemical Society and the Chemical Society of France.

Speech Title: Recent Advances in Electrochemical Immunosensors and Aptasensors for the Detection of Polyphenol A or Antibodies Ranging from Cholera to Dengue

Abstract: For four decades, the development of biointerfaces has been the subject of increasing research efforts in the field of biosensors. In particular, the functionalization of electrodes with electrogenerated polymers and / or carbon nanotubes or graphene is widely used for the design of biomaterials. These nano-objects were successfully functionalized by electropolymerization of pyrrolic monomers or via π−π stacking interactions with pyrene derivatives exhibiting both affinity or covalent binding interactions towards biomolecules.
