BME's Anant Madabhushi and team win QED Program grant

Anant Madabhushi, associate professor of biomedical engineering, and his team at the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics were awarded a $100,000 QED Program grant to build computerized decision support for detecting prostate cancer on MRI.

Madabhushi’s teams at Case Western Reserve University and Rutgers University also recently were awarded a $100,000 grant from the University City Science Center’s QED Program for their work on developing a novel technology to enhance the identification of prostate cancer through computer-based image analysis of MRI scans.

The QED Program is a multi-institutional proof-of-concept program that provides business development support for academic researchers developing early-stage life science technologies with high commercial potential.
