Janice (Hoi-Yee) Wong: Engineering cells to target the senescence-associated secretory phenotype 9:00 am
Janice (Hoi-Yee) Wong: Engineering cells to target the senescence-associated secretory phenotype
Feb 7 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Implicated in aging and age-related pathologies, the accumulation of senescent cells can prevent tissue repair and regeneration leading to loss of physiological function. Studies in model organisms have shown that the... Read more »
Tianyu Zhou (MHSc): A Particle Filter based Image Registration Framework for Estimating Continuous Organ Motion in MRgHIFU intervention 9:30 am
Tianyu Zhou (MHSc): A Particle Filter based Image Registration Framework for Estimating Continuous Organ Motion in MRgHIFU intervention
Feb 7 @ 9:30 am – 10:00 am
Room: RS 211Abstract: Background: Magnetic resonance guided high intensity focused ultrasound (MRgHIFU) is a non-invasive and non-ionizing therapeutic modality for the local deposition of thermal energy deep inside human body. However, the continuous physiological motion of... Read more »

Sina Panahandeh (MASc): Characterizing the Association between Brain Morphology and Behavioural Symptomatology in Autism Spectrum Disorder 9:00 am
Sina Panahandeh (MASc): Characterizing the Association between Brain Morphology and Behavioural Symptomatology in Autism Spectrum Disorder
Feb 14 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder defined by social communicationdifficulties and restricted/repetitive behaviours. Significant heterogeneity in genetic information,neurobiology, and behavioural characteristics has made it difficult to understand this disorder anddevelop... Read more »

Sonja Ing (MASc): Sustained Regional Analgesia for Post-operative Pain Management 9:00 am
Sonja Ing (MASc): Sustained Regional Analgesia for Post-operative Pain Management
Feb 21 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Post-operative pain remains a clinical challenge as current treatment strategies do not sufficiently address patient needs. Currently, peri-operative regional analgesia is achieved by blocking a nerve through direct injection of analgesic... Read more »
Souzan Mirza (MHSc): Using endoscopy exams to augment radiotherapy treatment planning 9:30 am
Souzan Mirza (MHSc): Using endoscopy exams to augment radiotherapy treatment planning
Feb 21 @ 9:30 am – 10:00 am
Room: RS 211Abstract: PurposeOne of the largest uncertainties in radiotherapy treatment planning for head and neck cancer is contouring the gross tumor volume. Under-contouring or over-contouring the tumor can increase the risk of negative health outcomes... Read more »

Jason Paquette (MASc): Modulation of Bladder Function with Tibial Nerve Stimulation in a Continuous-fill Anesthetized Rat Model 9:00 am
Jason Paquette (MASc): Modulation of Bladder Function with Tibial Nerve Stimulation in a Continuous-fill Anesthetized Rat Model
Feb 28 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Overactive bladder (OAB) is a syndrome characterized by symptoms of increased urgency and frequency that affects 8-9% of Canadian adults. Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) is a minimally-invasive OAB therapy in... Read more »
Shabnam Haghzare (MASc): Towards a Safe and acceptable control scheme of Autonomous Cars for older adults 9:30 am
Shabnam Haghzare (MASc): Towards a Safe and acceptable control scheme of Autonomous Cars for older adults
Feb 28 @ 9:30 am – 10:00 am
Room: RS 211Abstract: Out-of-home mobility is important to all age groups, though it is arguably the key factor in facilitating the quality of life experienced by older adults. Cars play a crucial role in this out-of-home... Read more »
