During the webinar, Dr. Aaliyawani Ezzerin binti Sinin from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) presented a talk titled ‘Multiferroics in the Medical Field’. The webinar discussed the potential applications of multiferroic materials in the medical field, highlighting their dual ferroic orders – ferroelectric and magnetic properties. This property allows the material to couple electric and magnetic fields, allowing advanced devices with enhanced functionality. The talk focused on using multiferroics in advanced medical imaging technologies. These drug delivery systems respond to magnetic fields, highly sensitive biomedical sensors, and therapeutic devices for cancer treatment, such as localized magnetic hyperthermia. Though these applications hold much promise, challenges such as material optimization, biocompatibility, and scalability must be addressed. The webinar emphasized the pioneering integration of multiferroic materials into medical applications and envisioned a future where collaboration between materials science and medicine delivers effective and targeted solutions to healthcare challenges.

The webinar offered valuable insights on using biomaterials and nanomaterials in medical applications, focusing on multiferroics in the medical field. This is expected to have a positive impact on society and the world at large. In conclusion, the participants have gained a fresh perspective on this important issue.
