Retrospective and Going Forward: Some Thoughts

We recently decided to each post a few thoughts looking back on our experiences as a member of the organising team for the student group of CAMBAM. So here is the first of four parts to give you an idea of where we all started from and where we each of us see the future. (more…)

What happened at the LBUM?

What to think about the visit of the laboratoire de rhéologie et d’ultrasonographie médicale (LBUM, http://www.lbum-crchum.com/) that took place last Wednesday? The first thing that comes to my mind is how nice these people were. For a full day, François Destrempes and a group of members of the LBUM interrupted their research to receive us and expose us the nature of their work. (more…)

Visit of the LBUM on April 18th

Hello everyone,

After the success of our visit to the Institut de Recherche Clinique de Montréal (IRCM) last fall, we looked for an interesting and entertaining laboratory with a touch of “magic”. After a survey of the laboratories of Montréal, we decided on the Laboratoire de Biorhéologie et d’Ultrasonographie Médicale (LBUM). For us “muggles” who never heard of the magic of biorheology: it refers to the  dynamics of biological fluids and tissues. The LBUM develops mathematical models for and researches the use of ultrasound imaging – and has also generously agreed to present to us their work, methods, and instruments during an extensive on-site visit.

Congratulation to one of our own!

On behalf of CAMBAM, I wish to congratulate one of our members, Alan Schoen, for having accepted a thrilling job with QLAYM, an artificial intelligence company based in Germany.

For those who remember, Alan presented us his project of a software devoted to toads identification by applying pattern recognition and categorization techniques over the shape and location of the warts located on their back. It was in December. Since then, our friend graduated from his masters in Neuroscience and was on the look for career opportunities. (more…)

UdeM’s Workshop, a warm invitation, a great day!

Workshop that took place at Université de Montréal under the CAMBAM banner.

Last week, we have been hosted by our fellows of the Department of Pharmacology of Université de Montreal. This meeting took the form of a friendly workshop during which three students have been invited to present their work and thoughts. (more…)

Field Trip to the IRCM!!!

Last Wednesday we took our trip to the Institut de Recherche Clinique de Montréal (IRCM). We were received by Ahmad Haidar, a PhD students developing an algorithm to regulate the dispense of insulin to diabetic patients. The study wants to develop a closed loop control to connect and coordinate commercially available sensing and pumping devices. This would essentially replace the need for diabetics to administer their own insulin doses, and reduce the dangers that come with it. (more…)
