The IQ Brew: Dr. Baowei Fei, UT Dallas Center for Imaging & Surgical Innovation
IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL EVENT
The IQ Brew is a networking and educational series featuring short presentations from entrepreneurs, small businesses and subject-matter experts. The goal of The IQ® Brew is to share lessons learned and to have the Richardson business community hear about the successes and challenges faced while starting and growing a business. Come join us for coffee and conversation every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month!
On Thursday, December 16, The IQ® Brew will continue the 5 series feature of the UT Dallas research teams that will have a footprint in the new IQ® Headquarters. These new centers, which are part of the UT Dallas Center for Emergent Novel Technology, were awarded seed grant funding from the UT Dallas Office of Research and will anchor a public presence in the Richardson Innovation Quarter.
Our fifth and final IQ® Brew UT Dallas Series will feature Dr. Baowei Fei, Director of the Center for Imaging and Surgical Innovation (CISI). CISI – https://imaging.utdallas.edu) provides the platform to promotes collaborations among the University of Texas at Dallas, City of Richardson, UT Southwestern Medical Center, and industry. The mission of the Center is to shape and advance imaging and surgical technology through innovative research and inspiring education, with the goal of establishing CISI as a national leader in the field. The goal for the Center is to utilize imaging, computing, and engineering for disease detection, diagnosis, and surgery for improving patient care and better human health. In this session, we will talk about examples of innovative biomedical engineering and imaging technologies that have direct impacts on disease detection and treatment.
