The 15th International Conference on
Ultrasound Engineering for Biomedical Applications
JULY 19 ~ 21, Torrance, CA
The 15th International Conference on Ultrasound Engineering for Biomedical Applications will be held from July 19th to 21st at the Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach in Torrance, California, US. The conference will take an offline format, and people from all walks of life in the field of ultrasound are welcome to attend.
Torrance Beach lies between Redondo Beach and Malaga Cove. The region shared by Torrance and Redondo Beaches is often called “RAT Beach” (short for “Right After Torrance” Beach or “Redondo and Torrance Beach”). This beautiful, soft sand beach has 40 acres of beach and is at the foot of cliffs which extend to the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
The 15th IC-UEBA will be held at the Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach in Torrance, California, US.

Dr. Ferrara is Professor of Radiology and Division Chief of the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford University. She previously served as the founding chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at UC Davis. Dr. Ferrara is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Biomedical Engineering Society, Acoustical Society of America, World Molecular Imaging Society and American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. Her publications include 300 manuscripts in the area of image-guided drug and gene delivery. Her laboratory has recently developed optical and positron emission tomographic methods to track AAVs and other viral vectors and characterize their interactions at the molecular, cellular and organ levels.
Professor Wang's research focuses on biomedical imaging. In particular, his lab has developed photoacoustic imaging that allows peering noninvasively into biological tissues. Compared to conventional optical microscopy, his techniques have increased the penetration by nearly two orders of magnitude, breaking through the optical diffusion limit. The Wang lab has invented or discovered functional photoacoustic tomography, 3D photoacoustic microscopy, optical-resolution photoacoustic microscopy, photoacoustic Doppler effect, photoacoustic reporter gene imaging, microwave-induced thermoacoustic tomography, universal photoacoustic reconstruction algorithm, time-reversed ultrasonically encoded optical focusing, and compressed ultrafast photography (world's fastest camera capable of 10 trillion frames per second). Combining rich optical contrast and scalable ultrasonic resolution, photoacoustic imaging is the only modality capable of providing multiscale high-resolution structural, functional, metabolic, and molecular imaging of organelles, cells, tissues, and organs as well as small-animal organisms in vivo. Broad applications include early-cancer detection, surgical guidance, and brain imaging. For example, it can help surgeons effectively remove breast cancer lumps, reducing the need for follow-up surgeries. Professor Wang's Monte Carlo model of photon transport in scattering media is used worldwide as a standard tool.
Mark S. Humayun, MD, PhD is an ophthalmologist, engineer, scientist and inventor and the only ophthalmologist ever to be elected a member of both U.S. National Academies of Medicine and Engineering. He is a university professor with joint appointments at the Keck School of Medicine of USC and the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. U.S. President Barack Obama named Dr. Humayun a recipient of the National Medal of Technology and Innovation in December 2015. The award recognizes "those who have made lasting contributions to America's competitiveness and quality of life and helped strengthen the Nation's technological workforce." Dr. Humayun co-invented the Argus Series retina implants, which are manufactured by Second Sight, and are intended to restore sight to the blind. The Argus Series implants were named by Time Magazine among the top 10 inventions of 2013. He has more than 125 issued patents, and is a member of the National Academy of Inventors. Dr. Humayun is director of the USC Dr. Allen and Charlotte Ginsburg Institute for Biomedical Therapeutics (GIBT) and co-director of USC Roski Eye Institute. He was the director of the National Science Foundation BioMimetic MicroElectronic Systems Engineering Research Center, and director of the Department of Energy Artificial Retina Project. He was also inaugural director of the USC Gayle and Edward Roski Eye Institute and interim chair of the USC Department of Ophthalmology.
Dr. O’Donnell is now Frank and Julie Jungers Dean Emeritus and a Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington. His most recent research has explored new imaging modalities, including elasticity imaging, in vivo microscopy, optoacoustic devices, photoacoustic contrast agents for molecular imaging and therapy, laser ultrasound systems, and catheter-based devices. He has won numerous awards, including the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Notre Dame, the Achievement and Rayleigh Awards from the IEEE-UFFC Society, the William J. Morlock Award for Excellence in Biomedical Technology from the IEEE-EMBS Society, and the IEEE Biomedical Engineering Award. He is a fellow of the IEEE and AIMBE and is an elected member of the Washington State Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering.
