We are very lucky to be able to work from home during this unprecedented time.
Like many other labs we were more than happy to donate our PPE to front line responders-- check out all our PPE headed off to the Durham Fire Department
Additionally, we are very proud of our own Dr. Mark Palmeri- who has been working tirelessly with students and faculty from across campus to help create face shields for first responders and a HEPA filter adaptation for PAPR hoods to help create more PPE. Check out the articles on his work here https://pratt.duke.edu/covid19/response-team and here https://pratt.duke.edu/about/news/covid-19-engineering-response-team
Congratulations to graduate student Anna Knight who ran her first marathon solo after her race got cancelled! The lab came out to make an impromptu finish line for her and celebrate her accomplishment
On Feb 10, Dr. Nightingale gave a talk titled “Multi-parametric ultrasound for targeting prostate cancer procedures” at the 12th International Symposium on Focal Therapy and Imaging in Prostate and Kidney Cancer in Washington DC.
- Congratulations to Dr. Nightingale for being named to the National Academy of Inventors! Check it out here https://pratt.duke.edu/about/news/2019-nai
- Cody gave an invited talk entitled "Quantitative multiparametric ultrasound for prostate cancer targeted biopsy" at the Acoustical Society of America's annual meeting in San Diego California.
- Dr. Rouze's latest paper, "Tractable calculation of Green's tensor for shear wave propagation in an incompressible, transversely isotropic material", has been accepted by Physics in Medicine and Biology, check it out here: https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-6560/ab5c2d
Grad students Anna Knight, Derek Chan, Courtney Trutna and Bofeng Zhang had fun joining in the group costume contest at the BME Department Halloween party. Check our entry of Ms. Frizzle and her Magic School Bus of schoolchilden!
Congratulations to Courtney Trutna for the acceptance of her paper entitled Measurement of Viscoelastic Material Model Parameters using Fractional Derivative Group Shear Wave Speeds in Simulation and Phantom Data. It will be published in IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control (DOI 10.1109/TUFFC.2019.2944126), and is available for early access here.
Thank you to all who came to see our work at IEEE IUS 2019 in Glasgow! Congratulations to Derek, Cody, and Anna who all gave great talks, and to Bofeng, Courtney, and Dr. Ned Rouze who all presented impressive posters! We enjoyed meeting with other researchers in our field-- check out the full Program here .
Congratulations to Derek Chan and Courtney Trutna for passing their Preliminary Exams!
Also, welcome to our new masters student Yangpei Liu!
We were excited to participate in the UltrasoNC Retreat at the North Carolina Biotechnology Center and meet and share research with colleagues in ultrasound at NC State, UNC and local ultrasound companies!
We are excited to announce that the Nightingale Lab will be presenting 10 abstracts at IEEE IUS 2019. Congratulations to Dr. Rouze, Felix, Ouwen, Cody, Bofeng, Anna, Courtney and Derek for successful submissions. Please come check out our posters and presentations in Glasgow!
