Andrew Bell / University of Leeds

Andrew Bell was appointed Professor in Electronic Materials at the University of Leeds since 2000, following a 15-year career in industry. His research focusses on the fabrication, characterization, modelling and applications of novel ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials, resulting in the publication of over 200 scientific papers. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, of IoM3 and of IEEE. He received the IEEE Ferroelectrics Recognition Award in 2012, the IoM3 Verulam Medal in 2014 and the Japanese Ferroelectrics International Award in 2015.

During the 2000’s, he led work on novel piezoelectric materials based on BiFeO3-PbTiO3 ceramics, with operating temperatures over 500°C and in 2013 founded a spin-out company, Ionix Advanced Technologies Ltd, to develop and manufacture devices based on the new material, including high temperature ultrasound transducers for monitoring and inspection of hot industrial plant. His group is one of the few in Europe to have successfully grown relaxor-PbTiO3 single crystals through a collaboration with Thales Underwater Systems.

Yoav Madan / Technion

Dr. Yoav Madan, social and technological entrepreneur and TED speaker, is currently a visiting scientist at the Technion since 2012, after a long career in industry. Dr. Medan taught an experiential course on entrepreneurship for engineering students and undergraduate graduates, as part of a new entrepreneurial studies track. In addition, Dr. Medan is a mentor to entrepreneurs in the field of medical devices through the Technion’s Biztec, T2MED and StartupMBA programs, MassChallenge Accelerator, Biodesign Israel program and early-stage
MedTech start-ups.

From 1999 to 2011 Dr. Medan served as Vice President and Chief Systems Architect at INSIGHTEC, a breakthrough medical device company in the field of non-invasive surgery using a focused ultrasound-controlled magnetic resonance imaging (MR) ultrasound. He is still involved as an advisory board member at the Focused Ultrasound Foundation.

In 2013, Dr. Medan founded Haifa3D, a 3D digital manufacturing association hosted by Tiltan College in Haifa and in 2015, founded the Digital Health Community in Haifa. In 2014, together with Dr. Yair Shapira, he founded AmplioSpeech, a start-up company developing a technology platform for treating children and boys with speech, language and dyslexia disabilities.

Dr. Medan is a graduate of the second cohort of 8400 leadership program, which aims to bring the field of health technologies to become the next economic growth engine of the State of Israel. In 2019, he initiated the establishment of the Health Guard Community to promote awareness of a healthy lifestyle and transition to preventive medicine.

Larry Mo / LMo Consulting LLC

Larry obtained his BASc degree in Engineering Science, and MASc and PhD in EE (BME) all from the University of Toronto, Canada.  His graduate research was centered around the area of Doppler ultrasound, including publication of two book chapters and a number of journal papers.  Larry has about 30 years of R&D experience in the ultrasound industry in the USA, including 20 years at GE and about 10 years with start-up Zonare in Silicon Valley.  In his most recent decade at GE Research center, Larry held leadership positions including Ultrasound lab manager, global ultrasound portfolio leader and Principal Scientist.  Since the middle of 2020, he has become an independent consultant for a few start-up’s involved in novel clinical applications of ultrasound.  Larry holds over 40 USA patents, many of which have been implemented on commercial ultrasound products.  More details can be found in Larry’s LinkedIn profile.   Outside of work, Larry enjoys spending time with his family, travel, hiking and church activities.

Hendrik J. Vos / Delft University of Technology

Hendrik J. Vos received the M.Sc. degree in Applied Physics from Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands in 2004, and his Ph.D. degree with the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, in 2010. He worked as a Postmaster Researcher with the University of Florence, Italy, on acoustic contrast agent characterizations and modelling. In a non-academic side path, he operated as a contract researcher for the petrochemical industry on cutting-edge ultrasonic monitoring solutions for three years. He currently is associate professor with Erasmus MC and Delft University of Technology, and received a 1-MEUR Dutch NWO-TTW-VIDI personal grant in 2018 and acts as PI in several research projects. His research interests include acoustical array technology for biomedical imaging in all its aspects: transducers, 2-D and 3-D beamforming, cardiac shear waves, ultrafast Doppler, contrast imaging, and related subclinical and clinical studies.
