Chelsea Munding is a fifth year PhD candidate in the Department of Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto.
Prior to beginning her graduate work, she studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Waterloo. During this time she spent five co-op terms at Sunnybrook Research Institute working on high frequency ultrasound transducers and imaging systems.
Her current research focuses on developing intravascular ultrasound transducers to better assess atherosclerotic plaque vulnerability.
John Hudson studied Engineering Physics at McMaster University prior to completing a PhD in the Department of Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto.
Subsequent training as a post-doc and a research associate at the Sunnybrook Research Institute has given him a diverse background in ultrasound physics, ultrasound imaging, contrast agents and translational science.
John’s current research interests include: Therapy monitoring, applications of shear wave elastography and 3D ultrasound imaging, non-invasive surgery using high-intensity focused ultrasound and microbubble contrast agent physics, applications and pharmacokinetic modelling.
