Medical Imaging 2021 Plenary Speaker

Rebecca Kortum-Richards

Rebecca Richards-Kortum 
Malcolm Gillis University,
Prof of Bioengineering
Director of Rice 360: Institute for Global Health Technology, Rice University


Dr.
Richards-Kortum will speak on Biophotonics Solutions to Global Health Challenges.

Her research has been instrumental in improving early detection of cancers and other diseases, especially in low-resources settings. Dr. Richards-Kortum’s research has led to the development of 40 patents. She is author of the textbook Biomedical Engineering for Global Health more than 230 refereed research papers and 11 book chapters. Her teaching programs, research and collaborations have been supported by generous grants from many distinguished health institutes. She was the recipient of the American Institute for Medical and Biomedical Engineering (AIMBE) highest honor, the Pierre Galletti Award.

She is currently working with colleagues and undergraduate students to develop a Nursery of the Future to provide technologies necessary to reduce neonatal death in sub-Saharan Africa to rates equivalent to the United States.

Why medical imaging thrives in San Diego

While San Diego is famous for its beaches and pristine weather, the California coastal city, and the state of California in general, is home to a combination of top-notch universities and world-renowned research institutes known for their science and technology programs. The nearby University of California San Diego and UC San Diego School of Medicine (to name a few) have added to the level of international recognition as a hub for biotech, genomics and healthcare-centric research.


Join your colleagues in San Diego and network with like-minded leaders gathering in one city.
