Brief Bio

Hossam Haick, an expert in the field of nanotechnology and non-invasive disease diagnosis, is a full professor and the F.M.W. Academic Chair in the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. Prof. Haick received his B.Sc. and Ph.D. (direct track) in Chemical Engineering from the Ben-Gurion University (1998) and the Technion (2002) respectively.  After a two-year period at the Weizmann Institute of Science (2002-2004), he moved to the California Institute of Technology – Caltech (2004-2006) for postdoctoral research, and then to the Technion as an assistant professor in 2006.

At the Technion, Prof. Haick has made a significant mark through his development of artificially intelligent nanoarray technology to detect diseases non-invasively.  This work has earned him prestigious grants: the Marie Curie Excellence Grant, the ERC and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Award. Among the many consortia Prof. Haick has coordinated are the FP-7 consortium (LCAOS; 2011-2015), a EuroNanoMed II consortium (VOLGACORE; 2014-2017), and the Horizon2020 ICT consortium (SNIFFPHONE; 2015-2019).

Project Based Learning and Biomedical Devices: The UBORA Approach Towards an International Community of Developers Focused on Open-Source Medical Devices

Andres Diaz Lantada
Universidad Politecnica de Madrid
Spain
 

Brief Bio
Andrés Díaz Lantada is Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Industrial Engineering School from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (ETSII-UPM). He finished his 6-year Industrial Engineering Degree in 2005 and his PhD Theses in 2009, which received Extraordinary PhD Award by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and 2nd PhD Award by the Council of Industrial Engineers of Madrid. His research interests are linked to the development of mechanical systems and biomedical devices with improved capabilities, thanks to the incorporation of smart materials, special geometries and complex functional surfaces and structures, mainly attainable by means of additive manufacturing processes. He is currently UPM Contact Researcher at the “European Virtual Institute of Knowledge-Based Multifunctional Materials”, UPM Leader at the “UBORA: Euro-African Open Biomedical Engineering e-Platform for Innovation through Education” project, funded by the EU H2020 programme within the “Support to policy and international cooperation” call, and Director of the UPM Product Development Laboratory. He has also led the research activities of UPM within the “TOMAX: Tool-less manufacturing of complex structures” project, funded by the EU H2020 programme within the “Factories of the future” call. He has directed 2PhD Theses and more than 100 MSc and BSc final degree theses. He has received the “UPM Teaching Innovation Award” in 2014, the “UPM Young Researcher Award” in 2014, and the “Medal to Researchers under 40” by the “Spanish Royal Academy of Engineering” in 2015. Since January 2016 he has the honour of being Member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the International Journal of Engineering Education. His current research dedication is to the field of open-source medical devices for the democratization of medical technology, in connection with the UBORA community and with the UBORA e-infrastructure, and to the development of innovative teaching-learning methodologies in the biomedical engineering field.
