A leading expert in the fields of focused ultrasound and acoustics, Lawrence A. Crum, PhD, has been selected for the Focused Ultrasound Foundation’s 2020 Visionary Award.

Clifton Leaf, prominent healthcare journalist and Editor-in-Chief of FORTUNE, will serve as a keynote speaker at the 7th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound.

To the focused ultrasound community:

As we get deeper into the planning for our first ever virtual symposium in November, we are becoming more excited and enthusiastic that this will be a very positive experience for all and a successful meeting.

James P. Allison, PhD, Chair of Immunology at MD Anderson Cancer Center, will share three decades of experience studying cancer immunotherapies at the Foundation’s 7th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound.

Now in its third year, the Ferenc Jolesz Memorial Award has a two-fold purpose: to honor the memory of Ferenc Jolesz, a world-class visionary with a passion for pushing surgery into the 21st century and a pioneer of focused ultrasound as a non-invasive therapy, and to recognize and encourage this same innovative spirit in mid-career researchers and clinicians who continue to advance focused ultrasound.
