7th Dutch Bio-Medical Engineering Conference
January 24th & 25th 2019, Egmond aan Zee, the Netherlands
KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Prof. Bart M. ter Haar Romeny, TU Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Bart M. ter Haar Romeny is professor of Biomedical Image Analysis (BMIA) at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology, and distinguished professor at Northeastern University in Shenyang, China. From 1989-2001 he was associate professor at the Image Sciences Institute of Utrecht University.
Education: MSc in Applied Physics (1978) at Delft University of Technology, PhD (1983) at Utrecht University in 1983.
He is EAMBES Fellow, and Senior IEEE member. He received the Wolfram Technology Innovator Award in 2013. He has been president of the Dutch Society for Clinical Physics, of the Dutch Soc. for Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering, and is currently president of the Dutch Soc. for Pattern Recognition and Image Processing. Appointed at TU/e in 2001, he handed over the chair to prof. Pluim in 2014 for medical reasons.
He is currently project leader of the Sino-Dutch RetinaCheck project (www.retinacheck.org), a large screening program for diabetic retinopathy in Northeast China.
Prof. Anthony Bull, Imperial College London, UK
Anthony Bull FREng is Professor of Musculoskeletal Mechanics at Imperial College London. His research interests are in how forces and deformations are transmitted through the musculoskeletal system. The applications range from diseases of ageing, including osteoarthritis, to high-level athletic performance and injuries.
Anthony leads the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies and the Musculoskeletal Medical Engineering, both multi-million pound, multi-investigator funded research activities at Imperial College.
Anthony’s main university leadership roles are Head of the Department of Bioengineering (since 2012), and co-Director of the Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Research Hub (the “Hub”) a 20,000 sqm translational research centre currently in construction at Imperial’s White City Campus. He is an active fundraiser for this activity having secured £68.8 million external funding for the building.
Professor Bull has was elected to the Fellowships of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2014, the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering in 2016, and to the World Council of Biomechanics in 2018
 
 
Prof. Richard Reilly, Trinity College, Ireland
Richard Reilly is Professor of Neural Engineering at Trinity College, The University of  Dublin, a joint position between the School of Medicine and School of Engineering. He is a Principal Investigator of the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering and of the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience.  His clinical neural engineering research focuses on the processing of signals that diagnose the human physiological and cognitive state: non-invasive electrophysical biomarkers for cognitive function, patient-oriented neurodiagnostics methods, neural prosthetics and therapeutic neuromodulation devices. He is a member of the Royal Irish Academy, Fellow of the Royal Academy of Medicine of Ireland, Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, Fellow of the European Alliance for Medical and Biological Engineering & Science and a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He is a past President of the European Society of Engineering and Medicine. He is currently a member of the Board of the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dublin and a member of the Health Products Regulatory Authority of Ireland’s Advisory Committee on Medical Device. He was awarded the Haughton Medal from the Royal Academy of Medicine of Ireland in 2013.  In 2004, he was awarded a US Fulbright Award for research collaboration into multisensory integration with the Nathan Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research, New York. He is a former Silvanus P. Thompson International Lecturer for the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Professor Reilly received his BE degree in Electronic Engineering, an MEngSc and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from University College Dublin. He has authored and co-authored over 450 publications in peer reviewed scientific journals and conferences.
