Eric Donders (MASc): Stabilizing colloidal drug aggregates 9:00 am
Eric Donders (MASc): Stabilizing colloidal drug aggregates
Nov 1 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: The hydrophobicity of many small molecule drugs limits their water solubility. It has been recently discovered that ~25% of these drugs spontaneously aggregate into amorphous, nanosized particles when their concentration exceeds... Read more »
Philippa Gosine (PhD): Understanding recovery reactions following balance loss: The effect of age and handrail design parameters 9:30 am
Philippa Gosine (PhD): Understanding recovery reactions following balance loss: The effect of age and handrail design parameters
Nov 1 @ 9:30 am – 10:00 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Falls on stairs account for 13% of older adults’ falls and over 76% of stair-related falls occur during descent. Once a balance loss has occurred, a handrail may be an effective... Read more »

Saba Sabetian (MASc): Self-collision Detection and Avoidance for Dual-Arm Concentric Tube Robots 9:00 am
Saba Sabetian (MASc): Self-collision Detection and Avoidance for Dual-Arm Concentric Tube Robots
Nov 8 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Minimally invasive surgical procedures have gained popularity due to clinical benefits including lower infection rates, less post-operative pain, faster recovery time, and smaller incisions. Concentric tube robots as shape-changing medical robots... Read more »
Soroush Abidi Tafreshi (MHSc): Privacy and Security of Electronic Health Record Systems: a user-centric approach 9:30 am
Soroush Abidi Tafreshi (MHSc): Privacy and Security of Electronic Health Record Systems: a user-centric approach
Nov 8 @ 9:30 am – 10:00 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Electronic health record systems contain personal health information that are very private in nature. Health information have 10 times higher value compared to financial data in the black market and fraudsters... Read more »

Luke MacLean (MHSc): Cardiac Suspension for Mitigating Tight Syndrome in Postoperative Newborns Design of a Mechanical Tensioner Device 9:00 am
Luke MacLean (MHSc): Cardiac Suspension for Mitigating Tight Syndrome in Postoperative Newborns Design of a Mechanical Tensioner Device
Nov 15 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Newborns with heart defects often need to undergo immediate open-heart surgery. Upon attempted chest closure, edema can cause a set of complications termed tight syndrome. The condition is characterized by hemodynamic... Read more »
Azin Ebrahim (MASc): Title: Modulating neocortical spatiotemporal potassium dynamics: effects on spreading depression and focal seizures 9:30 am
Azin Ebrahim (MASc): Title: Modulating neocortical spatiotemporal potassium dynamics: effects on spreading depression and focal seizures
Nov 15 @ 9:30 am – 10:00 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Background: Regulation and spread of brain extracellular potassium concentration ([Ke]) is disrupted in many conditions, including epilepsy, brain trauma, migraine and stroke. Focally increased [Ke] causes a transient spreading depolarization, which,... Read more »

Karly Franz (MASc): The Role of the Sympathetic System in Inhibiting Bladder Function during Saphenous Stimulation 9:00 am
Karly Franz (MASc): The Role of the Sympathetic System in Inhibiting Bladder Function during Saphenous Stimulation
Nov 22 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Background It is established that reflex inhibition of bladder function can be achieved by electrically stimulating the sacral spinal nerve, pudendal nerve, and the tibial nerve in anesthetized animals. Recent work... Read more »
Deniz Jafari (MHSc): Development and evaluation of algorithms for accurate navigation of radiofrequency ablation for the treatment of spinal metastases 9:30 am
Deniz Jafari (MHSc): Development and evaluation of algorithms for accurate navigation of radiofrequency ablation for the treatment of spinal metastases
Nov 22 @ 9:30 am – 10:00 am
Room: RS 211 Abstract: Background The metastasis of cancer into the bony skeleton is common in late stage disease. The vertebrae are the most common sites of bony metastases. The presence of metastatic disease may... Read more »
