Anant MadabhushiAnant Madabhushi
F. Alex Nason Professor
Madabhushi received his bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from Mumbai University, India, in 1998 and his master’s in biomedical engineering from the University of Texas, Austin, in 2000. In 2004 he obtained his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. He joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Rutgers University as an assistant professor in 2005, and in 2012 he joined Case Western Reserve University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering, where he directs a center on computational imaging and personalized diagnostics. Madabhushi has authored more than 115 peer-reviewed journal publications  and more than 150 conferences papers and has delivered over 175 invited talks and lectures. He has 23 issued patents in the areas of medical image analysis, computer-aided diagnosis and computer vision. He has received a number of awards for both research as well as teaching, including the Department of Defense New Investigator Award in Lung Cancer, the Coulter Phase 1 and Phase 2 Early Career award and the Excellence in Teaching Award. He is also a Wallace H. Coulter Fellow, a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), and a Senior IEEE member. In 2015 he was named by Crain’s Cleveland Business as one of Forty under 40 making positive impact to business in Northeast Ohio.

Nicole Seiberlich

Nicole Seiberlich
Elmer Lincoln Lindseth Professor of Biomedical Engineering

Seiberlich was born in Milwaukee and graduated summa cum laude with a BS in chemistry from Yale University in 2001. She worked for two years at Oliver, Wyman & Company as a management consultant, and left financial services to start her PhD in physics at the University of Würzburg (Würzburg, Germany) in 2003, graduating with honors in 2008. Following her graduate studies, she moved to Cleveland to work as a post-doctoral researcher at University Hospitals in the Department of Radiology. During this time, she was selected for the prestigious NIH/NIBIB K99/R00 award to help fund her research in signal processing methods for rapid cardiac MRI. Seiberlich moved to the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University as an assistant professor in 2011. In this position she has been awarded two R01 grants from the NIH and an NSF CAREER Award for her work in rapid MRI. She is also the recipient of several teaching and mentorship awards, including Case Western Reserve’s Diekhoff Award for Excellence in Graduate Mentorship and the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine Outstanding Teacher Award. She has published more than 40 peer-reviewed manuscripts, and has been invited to give more than 35 national and international seminars.

Dustin TylerDustin Tyler
Kent H. Smith Professor of Engineering

Tyler received his PhD in biomedical engineering from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland in 1999 and his BS in electrical engineering from Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Mich., in 1992. He has more 25 years of experience advancing neuromodulation technology with extensive publications and patents about his work. His research activity ranges from early innovation to clinical implementation of neural interface devices and systems designed to restore natural sensation and control in limb loss. He spent 1998-2002 in industry commercializing neural prosthesis for restoration of function in spinal cord injured and stroke patients, leading research and development efforts, as well as, managing the development of clinical programming software for medical devices. Since 2002, he has been a biomedical engineer research scientist at the Cleveland VA Medical center and was awarded a prestigious Research Career Scientist award in 2016. He has been a faculty member in the biomedical engineering department at Case Western Reserve University since 2004. He is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering and has secured more than $26M in funding from the VA, NIH, NSF and DARPA. He has published in Science, Nature: Nanotechnology, Science Translational Medicine, and many other discipline specific journals.
