The Centre co-organizes and presents a mini symposium and several academic papers.
City’s Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering (RCBE) in the School of Science and Technology was well represented and played a pivotal role in the IEEE 44th International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Conference (Glasgow, 11-15th July 2022).
During the conference, members of the Centre were involved in a variety of activities which included chairing workshop sessions; co-organising and presenting a mini symposium on Innovations in Photoplethysmography; co-organising a workshop titled, Open research in Biomedical Signal Processing: Cuffless Blood Pressure Estimation Using the MIMIC-IV Database’; and speaking at a mini-symposium on Recent Advances on Cuff-Less Blood Pressure Measurement.
The members of the Centre also contributed five scientific papers:
Outlier Management for Pulse Rate Variability Analysis from Photoplethysmographic Signals (E Mejia-Mejia and P Kyriacou)
Mechanical Testing of Artificial Vessels and Tissues for Photoplethysmography Phantoms (J May, M Nomoni, K Budidha, C Choi, and P Kyriacou)
Head Phantom Optical Properties Validation for Near-Infrared Measurements: A Comparison with Animal Tissue (M Roldan and P Kyriacou)
Monte Carlo Simulation of the Effect of Human Skin Melanin in Light-Tissue Interactions (R Al-Halawani*, S Chatterjee, and P Kyriacou)
Optical Detection of Lithium Therapeutic Levels in Porcine Interstitial Fluid Collected Using a Hollow Microneedle (M Sheikh, M Qassem, and P Kyriacou)
Commenting on the success of the Centre in Glasgow last month, Professor Panicos Kyriacou said:
The recent major and impactful contribution of the Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering at the world’s biggest Biomedical Engineering Conference (44th International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society) is testimony of the Centre’s international standing in research, especially in the field of optical sensors for applications in healthcare and wellbeing.
