Development of therapeutic applications of ultrasound has been rapidly increasing for some years. One rapidly growing area of research, yet to reach full clinical translation is transcranial ultrasonic neuromodulation, which has potential as a noninvasive, targeted therapy for treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders, and as a tool for increasing our understanding of the brain.

I will introduce my current work on therapeutic applications of ultrasound, from noninvasive ultrasonic neuromodulation, to ablative therapies, and development of a novel technique for rewarming of biological cells and tissues after cryopreservation. All of which is underpinned by measurement and simulation of ultrasound fields, development and characterisation of ultrasound devices, and measurement of the acoustic properties of materials.
