The board of directors is the top of the power structure of the foundation; the board of supervisors is responsible to check finance and accounting information in accordance with law and regulations; secretariat is the standing administrative unit of the foundation, which is responsible to the daily work of the foundation under the leading of leaders in the board of directors.
From July 8th to July 10th 2017, the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS) co-organized the International Symposium on Equipment and Biosensors and Summer School (MDBS 2017) and the 10th International Symposium on Biomedical and Health Engineering and the Summer School (BHE 2017). SUSTech hosted the event for the first time, which offered a series of academic conferences.
Lu Chun's welcoming speech
Lu Chun, Associate Vice President of SUSTech and International Affairs Chief Operating Officer delivered a welcoming speech at the opening ceremony and gave the audience an introduction on the university. The theme of the forum was "Wearable Sensing, Bio-robotics and Molecular Imaging for Precision Medicine". EEE-EMBS Former President and University of Illinois Professor Liang Zhipei, President of Nanjing University School of Engineering Nie Shuming, IEEE Fellow and University of Chicago Professor Pan Xiaochuan, Emory-Georgia Tech Professor of the Nanotechnology Center Wang Dongmei, Director of the Department of Electronics of the Chinese University of Hong Kong Meng Qinghu , Professor Fotiadis of the University Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, University of Ionia Professor Simpson, University of Southampton Professor Tan Lihai, Professor of Shenzhen Brain Science Institute and Professor of Shenzhen Institute of Tsinghua University Ma Hui, Colon University, USA Professor Ogawa, Oklahoma University Professor Ding Lei and 16 other internationally renowned scholar from the United States, Britain, Sweden, Greece, Japan and mainland China and Hong Kong attended the symposium.
Research paper showcase
In addition to 16 talks during the conference and the panel discussions, the organizers also held a student thesis contest and research paper showcase as well as other exchange activities with participation from Tsinghua University, Fudan University, Harbin Institute of Technology Shenzhen Research Institute, Shenzhen University, Beijing University of Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences Shenzhen Advanced Technology Research Institutions, the Hong Kong Chinese University, the University of Macau, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Optical Research Institute and other well-known universities, research institutions. Many professors and students as well as industry representatives attended the meeting.
During the meeting, experts and scholars will be able to test-wear implant sensors and equipment, biopics and biological simulation, somatic sensor networks, non-interfering physiological sensors, nano-sensors, nanotechnology for biomarker detection, multi-mode rapid biomedical imaging and processing equipment, and many other cutting-edge applications of the latest research. They will discuss and exchange on these to find ways to improve them and implement them in the future.
SUSTech Department of Electronics undergraduate Wei Jing participated in the thesis contest and won the first prize for his paper. His award-winning paper is entitled "Smartphone-based non-contact Respiration Rate Detection using Single-frequency Ultrasound Signal". This paper designs a non-contact breathing rate monitoring system based on existing smart phones, which is convenient for daily life health monitoring.
These types of events have proven to have catalysing roles in the research and industry circles and could pave the way for breakthroughs in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease prevention and early diagnosis. Furthermore, hosting it at SUSTech promotes the university’s leading position in these relevant areas of international academic exchanges.
