Events: Livsvetenskaper och teknik events at Chalmers University of TechnologyFri, 24 Feb 2017 15:30:02 +0100 PhD in Clinical Nutrition to Professor in Food Science<p>Landahlsrummet, Hörsalsvägen 9, 7th floor, Campus Johanneberg, Chalmers University of Technology</p><p>​Welcome to a WiSE seminar with professor Ann-Sofie Sandberg from the Division of Food and Nutrition Science, Department of Biology and Biological Engineering, Chalmers</p>​<br /><img src="/en/departments/s2/calendar/Pages/Ann-Sofie_Sandberg200px.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" /><br />Ann-Sofie Sandberg´s presentation will focus on her career from a young PhD student to a professor, in prosperity and adversity, and her chances to move forward in the Academy.<br /> Ann-Sofie´s research has focused on different areas: her PhD at the medical faculty on dietary fibre, then continuing to bioavailability of minerals and when moving to Chalmers also including processing effects on nutrient bioavailability and from the year 2000 building up research on marine bioactive compounds and metabolic disease and later food factors influencing immune and allergy development in infants. Development of advanced biological and analytical methods to measure nutrition is of great importance, and she has therefore recently introduced metabolomics and systems biology in nutrition research in collaboration with experts in the field. <br />Ann-Sofie will tell her story from a woman’s perspective and give examples from her own academic life, with the intention to discuss how to improve the chances for women to do career in the Academy today together with the audience.  <br /><br /><span>During the seminar we offer lunch.

Prehospital ICT Arena (PICTA) was formed at Lindholmen Science Park in 2014. It is a neutral, open national collaboration arena applying the principles and ideas of Open Innovation. Within PICTA health care, business and academia join forces to share knowledge and identify obstacles that hinders the sector from growth and utilization of ICT/eHealth in an optimal and efficient way.<br /><br />As part of this PICTA also identifies and runs projects with common interest to the stakeholders and a potential to develop the sector further. The project PrehospIT/Stroke is a good example. Here twenty-one parties in Sweden are involved in a project to create better conditions for optimal use of ICT/eHealth in pre-hospital care, by laying a foundation for national harmonization of semantic and technical interoperability - with the acute stroke chain as first application.<br /><br />The presentation describes the background, status and plans for Prehospital ICT Arena, and also the status and results of the PrehospIT/Stroke project - which ends in spring 2017. The presentation will also shortly present the project ViPHS (Video support in the PreHospital Stroke chain) which is a breakout project from PrehospIT/Stroke. Further info can be found at<br /><br />If you register before 13:00 on 23 February, you will be served a light lunch after the seminar.<br />Note that there is a information seminar right before this seminar about the call Innovatörer i vård och omsorg 2017. You have to sign up for that seminar separately (<a href="">link here</a>).<br /><br /><a href="">Click here to register!</a></p> the causality network inside the brain for the development of Alzheimer's disease: statistical inference approach<p>EB, EDIT-building, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​Seminar by Hamed Farhadi, returning from Harvard</p>​<strong><br />Abstract: </strong><br />In this talk, we will present our results on inferring the pathways of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) propagation inside the brain. In this study, we intended to infer the causality network for the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease inside the brain using clinical data obtained from positron emission tomography (PET) of elderly patients. First, we will briefly present the background of this study.  Next, we will give an overview of the nonlinear causality inference test that we have developed for this study. Finally, we will present our results that reveal causality relationships in certain brain regions that can be affected by AD. This project is carried out in John Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) at Harvard in collaboration with Massachusset General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School.                                                                                              <br /><br /><strong>Biography:</strong><br />Hamed Farhadi is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard University, USA, and a Researcher at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. He received his PhD degree from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden in 2014. His research interests mainly lie in statistical signal processing and machine learning for a broad range of applications including wireless healthcare systems, micro-robotic surgery, clinical data analysis, and wireless information networks. He has been recipient of several academic awards including ICASSP 2014 best student paper award. He is an Associate Editor of the Springer International Journal of Wireless Information Networks. <br />
