Speaker information

Professor Quentin Pankhurst, IBME, Professor Quentin Pankhurst is Director of UCL's Institute of Biomedical Engineering. He is also a founder and director of two spinout companies, Endomagnetics Ltd and Resonant Circuits Ltd.

Ever since Mesmer enthralled Europe during the Age of Enlightenment, “magnetic healing” has had many colourful champions all too ready to proclaim the amazing powers of magnetism. No less amazing though is the current revolution in healthcare biomagnetics, all of which is based on the solid ground of cross disciplinary innovation. In this talk, Quentin Pankhurst will both describe and demonstrate some of the most promising of these new biomagnetic devices that are beginning to be used in hospitals around the world.
