WPI Post-WCB Biomechanics and Vulnerable Plaque Conference

Post-WCB Workshop: July 12-13, 2014

Vulnerable Plaques: Data, Modeling, Predictions and Translation to Clinical Applications

Worcester Polytechnic Institute

(Endorsed by the World Council of Biomechanics)

Specific Aims

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Most cardiovascular events such as heart attack or stroke are caused by plaque rupture which happens without warning.   Available screening and diagnostic methods are insufficient to identify the victims before the event occurs. Medical imaging has emerged as powerful tool to quantify atherosclerotic plaque morphology, stenosis severity and plaque compositions. Patient-specific image-based modeling techniques have been developed to perform plaque mechanical analysis and have led to better understanding of mechanisms governing plaque progression and rupture. The objective of this workshop is to gather researchers from different disciplines related to image-based cardiovascular computational modeling to exchange state-of-the-art techniques in their respective fields, provide mutual professional training so that participants could broaden their skills and knowledge basis. The workshop will also identify challenges and critical needs in all related areas by listening to experts from other areas.

The workshop will have four themes, corresponding to the 4 aims listed below. We propose a two-day workshop, with a half-day committed to each theme. Participant presentations, workshops for individual group methods, panel discussions moderated by leaders in the field, and summaries for each theme will be arranged.

Aim 1. Identify critical issues encountered in medical image acquisition techniques related to vulnerable plaque research and corresponding strategies including image resolution, vulnerable plaque identification, cap thickness, intraplaque hemorrhage, and thrombosis;

Aim 2. Identify critical issues in mechanical testing and quantification of material properties and other boundary conditions such as flow velocity and blood pressure;

Aim 3. Identify critical issues in model development, plaque assessment, mechanisms, prediction of rupture and clinical events; method sharing / training. Conduct Image-Based FSI Modeling Workshop;

Aim 4. Validation of model predictions and assessment plan; Discussion on how the clinician can use the mechanics information to predict impending heart attack and guide therapy procedures; Research dissemination and commercialization, transforming research to clinical practices.

Presentations and Publications. Oral and poster presentations will be arranged. Full papers will be published as a special issue by Biomedical Engineering Online, following reviews organized by the Conference Scientific Committee. A good discount on publication charge has been obtained.

People interested in participating should contact me (dtang@wpi.edu). Limited travel support is available to off-set some travel cost. The title and the abstract of your paper should be sent to me by April 30. Full paper is due by May 31, 2014.

 Registration and Accommodations. A nominal registration fee will be to covers meals and conference materials. Students and participants staying in WPI East Hall (3 bedroom suite with shared bath/kitchen/living room) will incur room charge $60/night/person. Participants staying at Courtyard Marriot Hotel (walking distance) will incur $125/night/person. Local transportation cost between Boston and Worcester (train, car rental or taxi) varies.

People of a Feather - Special Screening

On Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 8 p.m., at the Woods Hole Community Hall, 68 Water Street, Woods Hole, the Woods Hole Film Festival presents a special screening of the multi-award winning feature documentary film PEOPLE OF A FEATHER by Joel Heath as the first film in a new film series, Bringing Science To The Screen.

 

Supported in part by a grant from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod and the Falmouth Community Fund, the series Bringing Science To The Screen will present films that incorporate science into the story, whether documentary or narrative. Scientists from the Marine Biological Laboratory and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, as well as other organizations will be invited to discuss the science represented in the films.

 

Tickets are $10 and are available in advance online at www.woodsholefilmfestival.org or at the door.  For more information call (508) 495-3456 or email info@woodsholefilmfestival.org

 

Featuring stunning footage from seven winters in the Arctic, the 92-minute PEOPLE OF A FEATHER takes the viewer through time into the world of the Inuit on the Belcher Islands in Canada's Hudson Bay. Connecting past, present and future is a unique relationship with the eider duck. Eider down, the warmest feather in the world, allows both Inuit and bird to survive harsh Arctic winters. Traditional life is juxtaposed with modern challenges as both Inuit and eiders confront changing sea ice and ocean currents disrupted by the massive hydroelectric dams powering New York and eastern North America. Inspired by Inuit ingenuity and the technology of a simple feather, the film is a call to action to implement energy solutions that work with nature.

 

About 1500 islands make up the Belcher Islands archipelago in eastern Hudson Bay. Most of the islands are uninhabited by humans. The islands’ 800 residents reside in Sanikiluaq, located on Flaherty Island. Even today, the Inuit rely on the fish, seals and birds available on and near the islands. The Arctic eider duck has played an important role in the community. Strong currents around the islands in the winter create ice-free areas, called polynyas. These areas of open water allow the eiders to diver for urchins and mussels on the sea floor. Instead of migrating south, these ducks stay through the winter.  They are an important source of both food and clothing for the Inuit.

African-American Roots & Spirituality: Nedelka Prescod's Acapella & Gospel Ensembles
Journeys in Sound PresentsAfrican-American Roots & Spirituality: Nedelka Prescod's Acapella & Gospel Ensembles

Nedelka Prescod is an artist and educator. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and of Panamanian heritage, Nedelka has spent a lifetime with music. Raised on classical and Latin music, Nedelka finds herself drawn to all music and simply sings songs from the heart and for the soul. Having recorded with Kenny Garrett Frierson and Danilo Perez and performed with Jason Moran, Fred Hersch and Bob 'Rakalam" Moses, Nedelka has a passion for creating performances that feature the art of independent artists addressing social awareness within local communities.

The New England Conservatory's newly founded Gospel Ensemble, led by Nedelka, explores contemporary African-American culture and spirituality as it is expressed through one of many genres of music. Not just a sound but the driving force behind a centuries long struggle, gospel music connects cultures through an awareness of the human spirit that is revealed and shared in song. NEC's Gospel Ensemble is a meeting ground for many backgrounds, musical and philosophical, and at the same time a safe space and even ground where the music tells the story of the human soul.

Earth Tones, the New England Conservatory's acapella Ensemble, features Nedelka along with fellow quartet members Arielle Armstrong, Joseph Copeland and Michael Mayo, This project is the collaboration of New England Conservatory students who first joined forces after their participation in the NEC African American Roots Ensemble. This quartet accesses the diversity of each singer's' musical background and personal styles combining them into one sound that is rooted in tradition, current in expression and forward in its unlimited ability to create and re-create.

Using this framework, developers will be able to take full advantage of these Alpha Anywhere features and capabilities to run their business applications on the full range of mobile devices and PCs. The course also covers Alpha Anywhere’s integration with PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build, the mobile application development framework, cloud-based storage area and compiler from Adobe Systems Incorporated, that will enable you to create Hybrid business applications that take full advantage of the native features on your mobile device.Course Objectives
