ADInstruments Research Day

Introduction


 


Dr Federico Formenti,
A prototype mechanical ventilator for COVID-19,

King's College London and University of Oxford 
Dr Federico Formenti is an integrative physiologist and sports scientist. He works in academia between King’s College London and Oxford, and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

His talk will summarise the collaboration between engineers, physicians and experts in medical device regulations to design, verify and manufacture a scalable mechanical ventilator to support the NHS during the COVID-19 pandemic. This work is a collaboration between King’s College London and the University of Oxford.

His research interests include human responses to hypoxia, cardiopulmonary and exercise physiology, development of technology for physiological research and critical care, currently funded by the Association of Anaesthetists in the UK and the NIHR.

Dr Keith Siew,
LabChart Lightning in the Lab: Exploring cardiac and vascular function in monogenic syndromes of hypertension and hypotension.

University College London
Keith is a renal-cardiovascular physiologist and microscopist. He is a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow at University College London undertaking collaborations with Université de Paris and Harvard University during his fellowship. His work focuses on elucidating the links between dietary salt intake, renal electrolyte homeostasis and blood pressure control.

His research combines advanced 3D imaging of post-mortem and biopsied samples, with in vivo physiological and pharmacological assessments of both rare disease patients and genetically engineered animal models of renal electrolyte and blood pressure disorders. His talk will summarise his approaches using ADInstrument equipment and LabChart software to record and perform real-time analysis of blood pressure, ECG, pulse waveforms and vasopressor responses in animal models to improve your experimental outcomes and extract the maximum amount of data from your raw recordings.
