CCIPD undergraduate researcher receives Goldwater Scholarship
Friday, April 3, 2020 - 15:24

Congratulations to Daniel Shao on being awarded the Barry Goldwater Scholarship. Daniel, an undergraduate researcher with CCIPD in his junior year, works on bioinformatics projects including building a machine learning classifier to predict patient survival from breast tumor images. 

In late March, the Goldwater Scholarship Foundation announced the recipients of the 2020 competition. From a pool of 1,343 undergraduates nominated by 461 institutions, the Foundation awarded 396 scholarships this year. Each institution is allotted four nominees, and this year two students in the department of biomedical engineering at Case Western Reserve University received the scholarship. The second BME student scholarship recipient is Evan Vesper.

Established by Congress in 1986, the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program is designed to attract outstanding students into careers in mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit to students who are sophomores or juniors during the current academic year and who have excellent academic records and demonstrated interest in and potential for careers in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering.

Machine Learning Working Group meeting, April 6th
Wednesday, April 1, 2020 - 16:38

Please join us for the second Machine Learning Working Group Meeting on April 6th, from 4-5pm ET (virtually). Drs. Miriam Cremer MD MPH, David Levitz PhD, and Yael Misrahi will present their talk, Advances in Cervical Cancer Screening- the Role of AI. Miriam Cremer MD MPH, is Director of Global Health Research, Obstetrics, Gynecology & Women Health Institute, Cleveland Clinic; David Levitz PhD is Co-founder and CTO, MobileODT and Yael Misrahi is Head of Global Partnerships, MobileODT. MobileODT creates smart colposcopy and visual assessment solutions for women's health clinicians.

The Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics has partnered with the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center to host the Machine Learning Working Group. Meetings are held each month with the express goal of leveraging the extensive Artificial Intelligence expertise concentrated across our partner institutions including Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals, the Cleveland VA Medical Center, MetroHealth, and the Cleveland Clinic. Through facilitating interaction of basic and clinical researchers we hope to strengthen the scientific merit of presented studies as well as identify novel collaborative opportunities. 

If you would like to attend the April 6th session, please reach out to James Hale:
