Texas AM University during Qatar and Qatar Biomedical Research Institute (QBRI), a member of Qatar Foundation Research and Development, sealed a second Middle East Conference on Biomedical Engineering (MECBME’14) on Thursday, 20 February, during a Hilton Hotel in Doha, Qatar. The four-day discussion hosted heading informal researchers and internationally eminent scientists in a margin of biomedical engineering, and focused on Qatar’s inhabitant investigate priorities in a fields of health and biomedicine.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) acted as technical unite of a eventuality that presented new investigate on a extended operation of topics in biomedical engineering and medical technologies applicable to a inhabitant health priorities spelled out in a Qatar National Research Strategy, including applications for diabetes, cancer, genetic diseases and cardiovascular diseases.
Dr. Mark H. Weichold, vanguard and CEO of Texas AM during Qatar, commented in a recover that: “Qatar has turn an rising investigate heart in a segment and a world, and Texas AM during Qatar is unapproachable to be a partial of that vanguard and an instance of creation and discovery. The University is also unapproachable to co-host this bid to offer confederate use and investigate in this essential field. MECBME is an critical height as a bioengineering attention and a compared investigate face ever-expanding direct on believe and resources. we would like to appreciate a hosting partner, a Qatar Biomedical Research Institute, and technical sponsor, IEEE, for creation this successful assembly possible.”
The discussion was giveaway and open to all scientists and engineers dependent with Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, and internal educational institutions, and featured a systematic module that enclosed 126 presentations by speakers from 20 countries focusing on topics on biomedical imaging, circuits, systems, and instrumentation; nano-medicine; biomechanics; biomaterials; and hankie engineering.
“MECBME’14’s design was to yield a forum for informal researchers to sell ideas with general experts and benefaction their latest erudite work and applications in biomedical engineering,” pronounced Dr. Reza Tafreshi, one of a discussion chairs and partner highbrow of automatic engineering during Texas AM during Qatar.
“This is in serve to compelling partnership between attention and academia,” he said. “The discussion has supposing an glorious event for networking and discussions between academics and institutions from general and informal medical organizations.”
MECBME’14 supposing participants with a event to take these initiatives to a aloft turn of fruitfulness. Four full addresses were delivered over a march of 3 days including presentations by Mimoun Azzouz, Professor and Co-Director of Sheffield Institute of Translational Neuroscience; Mustafa Khammash, Professor of control speculation and systems biology in a Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering during ETH- Zurich; Hicham Fenniri, Professor and Principal Investigator during QBRI; and Curtis L. Lowery, Chairperson of a University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences’ Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The culmination was a celebration cooking hold for all discussion representatives on Wednesday evening.
Qatar has turn a vital actor in many fields of research, interjection to a prophesy and support of HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of a Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. With QF RD as a pushing force to allege high-impact, transformative solutions directed during enhancing Qatar’s health, environmental, appetite and cyber security, sparkling collaborations have grown between opposite investigate institutions in Qatar and obvious educational institutions and attention opposite a world.
Texas AM University during Qatar is a bend campus of Texas AM University, dictated to be a premier provider of engineering preparation in a Gulf region, a profitable writer to believe internationally, and a valued apparatus to a State of Qatar. Since a tumble of 2003, a University has offering Bachelor of Science degrees in chemical, electrical, automatic and petroleum engineering. In serve to engineering courses. Researchers from Texas AM University during Qatar and a University’s categorical campus were named recipients of some-more than $27 million in appropriation for 28 new investigate projects in a second cycle of Qatar National Research Fund’s National Priorities Research Program.
Texas AM’s Qatar campus is partial of Education City, a campus dedicated to education, investigate and record on a 2,500 hactare (10 million block meters) site nearby a collateral of Doha. Texas AM’s neighbor institutions in Education City are Carnegie Mellon University, Georgetown University, Northwestern University, Virginia Commonwealth University and Weill Cornell Medical College. Compared to other Education City universities, Texas AM during Qatar claims to have a largest incoming category and a top enrollment of Qataris.
Texas AM University during Qatar provides instruction in science, mathematics, magnanimous humanities and a humanities. The curriculum offering during Texas AM during Qatar are matching to a ones offering during a categorical campus in College Station, Texas. Courses are taught in English and in a coeducational setting. The University offers bachelor of scholarship degrees in chemical, electrical, automatic and petroleum engineering. Degrees are released from Texas AM University.The repute for value is a same, as is a joining to training engineers versed to lead a subsequent era of engineering via a world. Texas AM University during Qatar’s goal is to rise model engineers and leaders by internationally reputable undergraduate and connoisseur grade programs, beget new believe by conducting investigate and disseminating results, and offer a needs of a State of Qatar and a segment by extended expertise. Texas AM during Qatar students have a event to live on campus in masculine or womanlike chateau halls, that offer enhances their university experience.
