Over de organisatie

The Research Laboratory on Electromagnetics for Care & Cure (EM4C&C) is an important and fast growing topic within the Electromagnetics Group at the Eindhoven University of Technology. The EM4C&C lab investigates novel approaches for application of electromagnetic waves in medical applications, like combining electro-encephalography (EEG) with simultaneous neurostimulation, magnetic resonance (MR) guided thermal therapy and wireless communication with implanted electronics. The lab is chaired by Dr. Ir. Maarten Paulides, and the main themes of research are:

-          Neurostimulation – led by Dr. Ir. Rob Mestrom, supported by Prof. Dr. Paul Boon

-          Clinical MR hardware – led by Dr. Ir. I Zivkovic, supported by Dr. Debra Rivera

-          MR guided therapy - led by Dr. Ir. Maarten Paulides 

-          In-body sensing and power transfer – led by Ir. Ad Reniers, supported by Prof. Dr. Ir. Huib Visser 

The research spans from fundamental work on the modelling of electromagnetic wave interaction with tissues to the development, evaluation and validation of novel techniques, tools and devices. Examples are understanding and modelling of neurostimulation and the development of novel heating devices for MR imaging guided cancer therapy. Our approach is based on multidisciplinary health-related research projects that are being conducted in synergy with medical partners and a wide range of industries (small, medium and large enterprises). Whenever required, we seek to supplement our electromagnetic expertise with the strengths of other groups of the TU/e, including sensing, modeling, imaging, monitoring, minimally-invasive interventions, ICT embedded systems and ubiquitous computing.
