About Event

This annual Workshop aims to expose students, engineers and scientists to recent developments in Biomedical Engineering that took place in some of the most respected international research centers and universities of the world.

Detail Event

This Edition

This year's Organization Committee of the annual Workshop on Biomedical Engineering (WBME) invites you to the 9th Workshop on Biomedical Engineering, which will take place at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, on the 8th of April, 2017.

This is for you!

The attendance of WBME is free of charge and will provide students the possibility to interact with national and international speakers. As in the last year's edition, the 9th WBME will also have a Poster Session for young researchers who wish to present and discuss their recent work. In order to submit your poster, we request a 400 word abstract ( template here ) describing the work to be presented, which must be sent to 9thwbme@gmail.pt. Afterwards you must wait for the confirmation of your works acceptance by the WBME organization committee.

Who Are Them

Nuno Santos

Biochemical

Nuno Santos became a Biochemical at Faculdade de Ciencias da Universidade de Lisboa. Nuno Santos has worked as a researcher in the department of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara, USA. Since 2008, he is the leader of Biomembranes & Nanomedicine Lab at Instituto de Medicina Molecular (iMM) where the research focus is on biochemical and biophysical processes occurring at the level of the membranes of human cells, as well as of their viral and bacterial pathogens. He is also an Associative Professor at Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Lisboa. Since 2001, Nuno has been awarded several prizes due to his research and presentations.

Thomas Pfeffer

Post-doctoral Researcher

Thomas Pfeffer, post-doctoral researcher at University Medical Center Hamburg, Germany. Thomas Pfeffer studied Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and Psychology at the University of Viena, Austria and the University of Magdeburg, Germany. His research is about the role of neurotransmitters in setting up, maintaining and orchestrating the spatiotemporal structure of spontaneous activity in the absence and presence of Stimulus. Since 2012, Thomas has received multiple awards, for example, two GlaxoSmithKline travel Grant.

Lucilio Cordero-Grande

Telecommunications Engineer

Lucilio Cordero-Grande received the Telecommunications Engineering, Postgraduate Certificate in Education, and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Valladolid, Valladolid, Spain, in 2005, 2009, and 2012, respectively. He was a Research Associate at the Laboratory of Image Processing (LPI) of the Universidad de Valladolid from 2005 to 2013. Since then, he is a Research Associate at the Centre for the Developing Brain and Department of Biomedical Engineering, Kings College London. During his research career he has made contributions in different methodologies of medical image analysis such as reconstruction, segmentation, registration, interpolation, simulation, Fourier and wavelet models. He is currently playing an active role in deploying the advanced image reconstruction techniques being used in the developing Human Connectome Project, a scientific effort to elucidate the brain function and structure evolution during early life.

Paulo Martins

Researcher

Paulo Martins, is a member of the Institute of Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering of FCUL - IBEB, where he integrates the line of research "cancer therapy and drug delivery". He also participates in a research program on imaging and radionology in Germany, where he aims to build a prototype that will allow, using the prompt-gamma imaging technique, the precise positioning of the Bragg peak in the radiotherapy with particles and the spectroscopy for the determination of the composition of the irradiated tissues.

Frederico Munoz

Archaeologist

Frederico Munoz studied archaeology in the University of Lisbon and worked in system administrator and engineering in companies like Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, IT-LOG and Novabase. Currently Frederico Munoz works in IBM as an enterprise Architect. This involves long-term account architectural governance and dealing with client requests, working together to ensure a common architectural line.

Nuno Santos

Biochemist

Erythrocyte aggregation is an indicator of cardiovascular risk, which is influenced by plasma fibrinogen concentration. Fibrinogen levels are elevated during cardiovascular diseases...

Thommas

Pfeffer

Post-doctoral

Researcher

Brain activity fluctuates continuously, even in the absence of changes in sensory input or motor output. These intrinsic fluctuations exhibit a characteristic temporal structure, which is evident as 1/f-like power spectra and long-range temporal autocorrelations, as well as an intricate correlation structure across space...
