Speaker information

Prof Quentin Pankhurst, Director, UCL IBME, Quentin Pankhurst runs research programmes as Director of the Davy-Faraday Research Laboratory at the Royal Institution in bio- and nanomagnetism aimed at making practical advances in the use of magnetic nanoparticles in healthcare. These include medical imaging devices, targeted regenerative medicine, molecular imaging microscopy for living cells, and the development of multi-functional nanoparticles for therapy and diagnostics. Pankhurst is also a founder and the current CTO of Endomagnetics Ltd, a spin-out company which in 2010 gained a CE mark for, and started selling, the SentiMag - an intra-operative medical device for breast cancer surgery. In 2012 he was apporinted Director of the UCL Institute of Biomedical Engineering, an organisa

Nanoparticles have unique properties that could revolutionise medicine, with applications in diagnosis, therapy, regenerative medicine and more. Through two complementary short lectures, Dr Florence Gazeau (CNRS, University Paris Diderot) and Professor Quentin Pankhurst (UCL Institute of Biomedical Engineering) will discuss this potential, focusing on the work of their groups on both sides of the Channel on nanomagnetism.

This is the last in a series of four lectures, bringing together experts from UCL and France to share and compare perspectives on engineering for human well-being, followed by an opportunity to ask questions, and a reception to discuss the ideas presented.
