Prof. Borden gave a seminar yesterday in Biomedical Engineering at the Imperial College London. Thanks to Prof. James Choi and his students and colleagues for an interesting and enjoyable visit. Lots of outstanding research going on here!
Prof. Borden is co-organizing a symposium on Emulsions, Bubbles and Foams at the upcoming ACS Colloids meeting in New York City. Please consider submitting an abstract; deadline is April 15.
“Blow a soap bubble and observe it. You may study it all your life and draw one lesson after another in physics from it.”
Professor Borden will give two invited talks in upcoming research symposia focusing on the science and applications of microbubbles in medical ultrasound.
Tuesday, 1/17/2017: Symposium on Ultrasound Triggered Drug Delivery, Ghent
Thursday, 1/19/2017: European Symposium on Ultrasound Contrast Imaging, Rotterdam
Hope to see you there!
Our new Air Force grant was highlighted on the CU website and 9 News TV:
Congrats to Kang-Ho Song on his new paper in Theranostics, “Microbubble gas volume: A unifying dose parameter in blood-brain barrier opening by focused ultrasound“. Here, we show with microbubbles of different size that the extent of BBB opening increases linearly with the total volume dose of microbubbles. We then use the technique to achieve targeted DNA transfection of neurons. This work is a collaboration with Brandon Harvey at NIH.
Paul Mountford and Jordan Lum gave talks this week at the IUS in Tours, France.
