Prof. Tim St Pierre is back from his IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturer tour, and will give a final lecture here at UWA: “Magnetic Materials in Medicine: Applications in Diagnosis, Management, and Treatment of Disease” Prof. Tim St Pierre, 2014 IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturer 5:30 pm, Monday, 15th December Webb Lecture Theatre, Geology &Read more…

 

The Photography in Medical Physics competition, hosted by ACPSEM, highlighted some of the visually exciting aspects of medical physics. Among the photographic subjects were ferrofluids from our BioMagnetics Research Group. Ferrofluids are liquids containing nanoparticles of magnetic material. They can be used in medical applications such as targeted drug delivery and magnetic hyperthermia (heat treatment).

 

Come along to the UWA Open Day to learn more about the university, including study, research and student life. We will run demonstrations of medical physics and biomagnetics in the atrium of the School of Physics. When: Sunday, 10 August 2014, 10 am – 4 pm Where: The University of Western Australia  

 

Prof. Tim St Pierre gave his second IEEE Distinguished Lecture at Chuo University in Tokyo.  There he met with the IEEE Magnetics Society Tokyo Chapter.  It was a biomagnetics-flavoured event, with the group hosting on the same day Prof. Balachandran Jeyadevan (School of Engineering, The University of Shiga Prefecture), who gave a lecture entitled, “Magnetic Fluid Hyperthermia: Challenges and Future ProspectsRead more…

 

Today’s UWA home page and UWA media statement feature work by Tim St Pierre and the BioMagnetics Group on magnetism in medicine.

 

Congratulations to Prof. Tim St Pierre, who has been selected as a 2014 IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturer.  He will present the following talk about biomagnetics and its biomedical applications, travelling globally with his presentation over the year.  Stay tuned for Prof. St Pierre’s movements in our unfolding, “Where is Tim?” adventure.
