CANCELLED:Shining light on the brain: Optics in medicine:CANCELLED

Speaker:

Dr Gemma Bale, University College London

 

Abstract:

Gemma is a medical physicist who creates optical technology to monitor the brain, both its activity and health, in spaces where conventional brain monitors won’t fit: from tracking the brain’s development to searching for biomarkers of newborn brain injury in intensive care. This lecture will illuminate the science and engineering behind this technology - using live demos - and take an in-depth look into the future of brain monitoring.

Dr Gemma Bale is a Research Associate in Medical Physics at University College London. Her work in the Biomedical Optics Research Laboratory focuses on developing new, non-invasive brain monitoring techniques for the measurement of cerebral oxygenation and metabolism. In 2018 she undertook a Media Fellowship, working as a science journalist for BBC Radio 2, and was awarded the Isambard Kingdom Brunel Award Lecture for Engineering, Technology and Industry by the British Science Association, as part of its prestigious Award Lecture.
