On Tuesday, November 8th, 2022, the Center for Biomedical Research (CBR), a section of Dr. Anawarul Abedin Innovation Institute, in collaboration with the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society AIUB SB Chapter, successfully organized a seminar session titled ” International Day of Medical Physics & World Radiography Day.” The event commemorated the International Day of Medical Physics and World Radiography Day. The purpose was to increase public understanding of the significance of physics in the healthcare system and promote public awareness of radiographic imaging and therapy.

The program was inaugurated by Prof. Dr. Md. Abdur RahmanAdvisor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Associate Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB. He talked about the importance of medical physics and instrumentations, and Radiation. He also spoke about the fields of Biomedical & Physics being related. After the inauguration, Dr. Humayra Fredous, Deputy Director, Center for Biomedical Research, AIUB: Head-in-charge & Associate Professor, Department of Physics, AIUB, gave her remarks about the session. She mentioned that World Radiation Day and the International Day of Medical Physics are being observed for the first time in AIUB. Then she talked about Marie Curie and her inventions, usage of radiation & radiotherapy, cancer treatment and fatalities, etcetera. Then the speaker, Dr. S.M. Hasan MahmudAssistant Professor, Department of Computer Science, AIUB, took the stage. He greeted and thanked everyone for joining the session. He started the discussion with a machine learning-based approach to computational drug discovery. He also talked about feature extraction, balancing & model training phase. Before that, he described the bioinformatics & drug target data processing phase. There was a detailed discussion on using bioinformatics and machine learning algorithms and their real-life applications. The session ended with Prof. Dr. Mohammad Abdul Mannan, Advisor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch, Director, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, presenting the token of appreciation to the honorable speakers.

The seminar started at 03:30 PM and finished at 5:00 PM. A total of 50+ participants attended the event.
