On September 4, more than 100 researchers, clinicians, and students from 14 departments attended the UVA Focused Ultrasound Center Evening Symposium.

Presentations from experts covered a wide range of topics, including developments in MRI technology for focused ultrasound (FUS) applications, FUS-mediated drug delivery, and clinical and pre-clinical brain studies. The symposium also highlighted novel applications, such as exploring the use of FUS to aid traditional immunotherapy and treat osteoarthritic pain (see related story in our September 2013 Newsletter). This work showcases not only the versatility of the technology, but the breadth of indications on the horizon in FUS research.

The event included guests and speakers from Catholic University in Washington, DC; the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and the University of Maryland. “We are pleased to see so much interest in FUS from across departments at UVA and other leading universities,” says Rich Price, PhD, research director of UVA’s Focused Ultrasound Center. “The momentum is building as we generate potential for synergies and collaboration across a range of specialties that can push the boundaries of the field into exciting new applications.”
