Our Associate Professors Jerome Charmet and George Despotou deliver the first WMG Associate Professor Lecture Series
Jerome will be giving an overview of his current activities, concentrating on two precision oncology projects. Jerome has worked with a company and clinicians to develop two devices that can simplify cancer management and in particular immunotherapies.
George will present his lecture on "The digital health transformation: at the crossroads of science, engineering and medicine.": Healthcare has experienced a profound transformation. This has been made possible by numerous applications that change the way one will interact with the healthcare system. Knowledge from biology, engineering, computer science, medicine, as well as knowledge from multiple domains such as aerospace and automotive, is brought together in digital health. This results in building safe, effective and efficient patient-centric services and empowering the patient to manage their daily care. The presentation gives an overview by examples, of digital health as the crossroads multiple disciplines.
