MedTech West lunchseminar: Wearable Sensors
Time 11:30-12:30 (13:00 incl. lunch)
Location Förmaket, Vita stråket 12, Sahlgrenska University Hospital

wearIT_group1At this lunchseminar Kristina Malmgren, professor at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology at the Sahlgrenska Academy, and Jan Wipenmyr, senior project manager at RISE Acreo, will tell us about the wearITmed project.

The overall objective of the project is to develop a novel wearable sensor system with advanced signal processing and sensor fusion that utilises textiles as an active component to overcome problems related to signal artefacts emanating from sensor-patient interface and to provide patient comfort. This sensor system aims to monitor the symptoms of neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson´s disease and stroke.

Specific goals are to develop a wearable sensor system demonstrator, including both integrated gyros/accelerometers and textile sensors, useful for the evaluation of clinically relevant movement patterns and other physiological parameters, and further to establish disease discriminating and treatment responsive objective variables.

There is a need for easy-to-use wearable sensors with the possibility of continuous measurement, both at hospital and at home making it possible to improve diagnosis, monitor disease progression or improvement and tailor treatments.

Professor Kristina Malmgren, Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, is the principal investigator for the wearITmed project and Jan Wipenmyr is senior project manager at RISE Acreo.

The five year project is funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (Stiftelsen för strategisk forskning) and include the MedTech West partners Sahlgrenska Academy/University of Gothenburg and University of Borås together with RISE/Acreo and Swerea/IVF.

If you register before 13:00 pm on Monday 8 May, you will be served a light lunch after the seminar.

MedTech West lunchseminar: Inferring the causality network inside the brain for the development of Alzheimer’s disease: statistical inference approach with Hamed Farhadi
Time 11:30-12:30 (13:00 incl. lunch)
Location Kammaren, Vita stråket 12, Sahlgrenska University Hospital

Hamed FarhadiIn this talk, Hamed Farhadi will present recent results on inferring the pathways of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) propagation inside the brain. In this study, they intended to infer the causality network for the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease (A-beta and Tau) inside the brain using clinical data obtained from positron emission tomography (PET) of elderly patients at Massachusset General Hospital (MGH). First, Hamed will briefly present the background of this study.  Next, he will give an overview of the nonlinear causality inference test that he has developed for this study. Finally, he will present the results that reveal causality relationships in certain brain regions that can be affected by AD. This project is carried out in John Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) at Harvard in collaboration with MGH and Harvard Medical School.
Hamed Farhadi is a Researcher at Ericsson Research, Stockholm, Sweden, and a Research Fellow at Harvard University, Cambridge, USA. He received his PhD degree from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden in 2014. He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard in 2016 and a Postdoctoral Researcher at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden from 2015 to 2017. His research interests mainly lie in statistical signal processing and machine learning for a broad range of applications including wireless healthcare systems, micro-robotic surgery, clinical data analysis, and wireless information networks. He has been the recipient of several academic awards including ICASSP 2014 best student paper award. Dr. Farhadi is an Associate Editor of the Springer International Journal of Wireless Information Networks.

If you register before 13:00 pm on Tuesday 2 May, you will be served a light lunch after the seminar.

A MedTech West lunchseminar with Jeppe Magnusson
Time 11:30-12:30 (13:00 incl. lunch)
Location Kammaren, Vita stråket 12, Sahlgrenska University Hospital

Jeppe Magnusson

How successful strategies ultimately fail- if pursued too long

Learnings from a journey from discovery to a global medical device Corporation


At this lunch seminar Jeppe Magnusson will take us on a journey from discovery and early clinical develoment through market introduction and global penetration for a wellknown medical device corporation. Management focus and consequences of strategies will be discussed in the light of milestones and value creation.

Jeppe Magnusson has more than 30 years of industrial experience from executive positions in international companies such as Nobel Industries, Union Carbide, Akzo Nobel, Mölnlycke, SCA and Nobel Biocare. Today, he is partner in ISEA, Industrial Senior Advisors. In this capacity he has several engagements in start-ups within medical and medical devices. Jeppe holds a PhD in Chemical Reaction Engineering from Univ. Chalmers, Göteborg.

Welcome to a WiSE seminar with professor Ann-Sofie Sandberg from Chalmers
Time 11:30-13:00
Location Landahlsrummet, Hörsalsvägen 9, 7th floor, Chalmers University of Technology

as_newWelcome to a WiSE seminar with professor Ann-Sofie Sandberg from the Division of Food and Nutrition Science, Department of Biology and Biological Engineering, Chalmers.

Ann-Sofie Sandberg´s presentation with the title “From PhD in Clinical Nutrition to Professor in Food Science” will focus on her career from a young PhD student to a professor, in prosperity and adversity, and her chances to move forward in the Academy. Ann-Sofie´s research has focused on different areas: her PhD at the medical faculty on dietary fibre, then continuing to bioavailability of minerals and when moving to Chalmers also including processing effects on nutrient bioavailability and from the year 2000 building up research on marine bioactive compounds and metabolic disease and later food factors influencing immune and allergy development in infants. Development of advanced biological and analytical methods to measure nutrition is of great importance, and she has therefore recently introduced metabolomics and systems biology in nutrition research in collaboration with experts in the field. Ann-Sofie will tell her story from a woman’s perspective and give examples from her own academic life, with the intention to discuss how to improve the chances for women to do career in the Academy today together with the audience.
When? Tuesday 28 February 2017, 11:30-13:00 incl. lunch
Where? Landahlsrummet, Hörsalsvägen 9, 7th floor, Chalmers University of Technology

During the seminar we offer lunch. Register at the latest by Thursday 23 February, 2017. For questions, please contact: wise@medtechwest.se
