Speakers

Michael D. Gray
PhD @University of Oxford, Institute of Biomedical Engineering
Michael D. Gray, PhD received a Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, in 2015. From 1992 to 2015, he was a Research Engineer with the Georgia Institute of Technology. Since 2015, he has been a Senior Research Fellow of clinical therapeutic ultrasound with the Biomedical Ultrasonics, Biotherapy and Biopharmaceuticals Laboratory (BUBBL), Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University of Oxford, Oxford, U.K. In this capacity, he has been the lead engineer on two Phase 1 clinical trials of ultrasound-triggered drug delivery for treatment of solid tumors in the liver and pancreas. His broader research interests include the use of sound, magnetism, and light for targeted drug delivery, clinical translation of cavitation monitoring techniques, and hearing in marine animals. He is a member of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine and the Acoustical Society of America.
Kevin J. Haworth
PhD, FAIUM @University of Cincinnati, Department of Internal Medicine
Kevin J. Haworth, PhD, FAIUM received a B.S. degree in physics - Truman State Univ. (2003) and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in applied physics - Univ. of Michigan (2006 & 2009). His postdoctoral research was completed as an NIH/NRSA fellow at the Univ. of Cincinnati, investigating cavitation imaging under the tutelage of C. K. Holland and T. D. Mast. He subsequently joined the Univ. of Cincinnati faculty in 2012 and was named an associate prof. of Internal Med and Biomedical Engineering in 2019. He is pursuing studies on the development and application of passive cavitation imaging for drug delivery and histotripsy, and the use of acoustic droplet vaporization for gas scavenging as a means of inhibiting cardiac ischemia-reperfusion injury. He is a member of several professional societies including the AIUM, the ASA, and the ISTU. He is an FAIUM and serves on the Bioeffects Committee, Technical Standards Committee, and is Secretary of the Basic Science & Instrumentation Community of Practice.
