João Sanches
Instituto Superior Técnico

João Sanches is Associate Professor in the Bioengineering Department (DBE) at the IST and he’s from the coordination board of the biomedical engineering master and doctoral programs. His research scientific topics are Imaging, Biosignals and Biomedical Instrumentation. João is researcher and member of the board of directors of the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR) where he develops his research activity in the Laboratório de Sistemas Evolutivos e Engenharia Biomédica (LASEEB). He is the coordinator of the “Engineering for and from the life sciences” thematic area of the Laboratory for Robotics and Engineering Systems (LARSyS), to which the ISR belongs, aiming to coordinate and strategically guide LARSyS Health activities. It has about 150 international publications and a h index of 24 in Google Scholar. He is a senior fellow at the IEEE Engineering Society in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS).

Ana Maria Mendonça

Ana Maria Mendonça received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Porto (FEUP). She was a Researcher with the Institute for Biomedical Engineering (INEB) until 2014, but since 2015, she has been a Senior Researcher with INESC TEC. She was the Director of the Master in Biomedical Engineering from 2009 to 2014. She is currently an Associate Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (DEEC), Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto (FEUP). She is also a member of the Scientific Committee of the Doctoral Program in Biomedical Engineering. She has been collaborating as a Researcher and also as responsible in several research projects, mostly dedicated to the development of image analysis and classification methodologies aiming at extracting essential information from medical images in order to support the diagnosis process. Her past work has been mostly devoted to three main areas: retinal pathologies, lung diseases, and genetic disorders, but ongoing work is mainly focused on the development of Computer-Aided Diagnosis systems in Ophthalmology and Radiology. She has coauthored more than 100 papers in international journals and conferences, which attracted more than 2350 citations, according to Google scholar. Her current research interests include the areas of biomedical engineering, medical image analysis, computer vision, and machine learning.

Marco Simões

Marco holds a PhD degree in Information Sciences and Technologies developed in partnership between CIBIT and CISUC, both from the University of Coimbra in Portugal, and a Master and Bachelor in Computer Science from the Department of Informatics Engineering (DEI) of the same university. Marco is an invited Assistant Professor at DEI. He is a researcher at CISUC and CIBIT, using data science applied to neuroimaging data (EEG and fMRI) to study the neurocorrelates of social and functional tasks in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, using Virtual Reality for recreation of realistic environments. His main goal is to develop methods to improve the understanding, diagnosis and rehabilitation of those disorders. He has published over 30 research papers and participated on over 10 different research projects (national and international).
