“We are very far from understanding what’s happening in the brain”

Brains are talking to computers, and computers to brains. Are our daydreams safe?

Jill S. Barnholtz-Sloan, PhD, Professor and Sally S. Morley Designated Professor in Brain Tumor Research, CWRU School of Medicine, will present “Cancer Data Sciences as a New Pillar for the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center".

Mehdi Alilou, a research assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD), was awarded a two-year, $383,000 early career lung cancer grant from the Department of Defense Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (DOD CDMRP) Lung Cancer program. The funding will support his project, “Quantitative Vessel Tortuosity as Biomarker for Predicting and Monitoring Response to Immunotherapy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer from Routine CT Scans.”

Congratulations to Andrew Janowczyk, PhD, who won 2nd place for his presentation "Quick Annotator: A tool for Rapidly Annotative Digital Pathology Images" at the Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) Annual meeting

Artificial Intelligence Software May Prevent Unneeded Cancer Surgeries

This list celebrates 100 influential figures, thought leaders, and opinion shapers in pathology and laboratory medicine. Madabhushi was also named to the Power List in 2019.


Keeping a growth mindset: I learn from my students, colleagues, and even from my toddler (he teaches me to be patient) every day. Productivity becomes stagnant when you stop learning.

On July 28th, 2020, Anant Madabhushi, PhD, Director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, was a speaker at the virtual Workshop on Machine Vision of the National Institute of Technology Jamshedpur. 

Congratulations to Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD) researchers on three recently published papers.

Please join CCIPD for a virtual Machine Learning Working Group Meeting on July 31st, from 2-3pm EDT. Mirabela Rusu, PhD, Assistant Professor of Radiology at Stanford University, will present “A RAPSODI of Radiology and Pathology Images to Learn MRI Signatures of Prostate Cancer".

Congratulations to Pranjal Vaidya, PhD student, biomedical engineering and the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, for having been awarded the very competitive ACM SIGHPC Computational & Data Science Fellowship.The award includes $15,000 to support Pranjal towards the completion of her PhD.

Newest research at Case Western Reserve University funded by $3.8 million U.S. Dept. of Defense grant, seeks to aid soldiers on battlefield

Congratulations to Catherine Jayapandian, PhD, Senior Research Associate in the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD), who has been awarded a one-year $57,500 Career Enhancement Award from the Neptune Kidney Consortium.

Anant Madabhushi, PhD, a professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, commented that the new study is "complementary and supports the premise that radiomics both from inside and outside the tumor can tell us about outcome and treatment response."

On June 23rd, 2020, two patents were awarded to inventors from the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD): “Intra-Perinodular Textural Transition (IPRIS): A Three Dimensional (3D) Descriptor for Nodule Diagnosis on Lung Computed Tomography (CT) Images” and “Treatment planning and evaluation for rectal cancer via image analytics”. Congratulations to Anant Madabhushi, Satish Viswanath, Mehdi Alilou and Jacob Antunes. Read details about the patents below.

CCIPD Director Anant Madabhushi, PhD will be giving the virtual professorship lecture, "Artificial Intelligence and Computational Imaging in Radiology and Pathology: Implications for Precision Oncology", with the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Department of Medical Physics on July 8, 3-4 pm EDT.

TECHNOLOGY: Pallavi Tiwari, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve University – Tiwari is spearheading cutting-edge research in the field of computational imaging, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to address some of the most critical clinical problems in brain tumors.

The six winners are assistant professors or senior lecturers and represent women leaders in the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing and Design;

Each winner will receive $150,000 in funding and three years of mentorship from Johnson & Johnson to support cutting-edge research on clinical trials, origami-inspired robotics, planetary systems, hospital lighting, and the treatment of brain tumors and bowel diseases.
