Professor Jens Haueisen of Germany’s Ilmenau University of Technology (TUI) will be hosted this month by King Saud University’s College of Applied Medical Sciences, which has invited him to speak on his research in electrocardiography (EKG), which is the science of recording electric waves during heart activity.
Dr. Haueisen, who chairs the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics at TUI, will deliver two lectures during his stay.
The first will be in regard to the assessment of bioelectric and biomagnetic measurements, beginning at noon on Saturday, March 20th. The second lecture will take place on Sunday, march 21 at noon, and will discuss the latest developments in research that connects electrocardiography and ophthalmology (a branch of medicine which deals with the diseases and surgery of the visual pathways). The lecture series will take place at the College of Applied Medical Sciences’ main hall (room 118).
These lectures will give King Saud University’s faculty and students an opportunity to learn about some of the most exciting developments in Biomedical Engineering, which has utilized the advances of both medicine and technology, and considered by some as one of the most promising areas of research for the 21st Century.
