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.

Dr. Feixiong Cheng, Assistant Professor, Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute, will present his work focusing on "Network Medicine for Cardio-Oncology and COVID-19".

COVID-19 hasn’t relieved him of any of those duties, says Dominique Durand, a professor of neural engineering at Case Western Reserve University. Like most professors, Durand functions as the de facto owner of a small business, with responsibility for hiring people, meeting payroll, and maintaining inventory. 

Congratulations Katelin Amann, Jihan Zhang, Vinayak Sharma, Avani Muchhala, Daniel Shao, Ruyuan Zuo, and Hoa Le!

Congratulations to Rakesh Shiradkar, PhD, and team, who received one of seven annual pilot awards supported by the Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC). 

Haima Therapeutics has executed an exclusive license agreement with Case Western Reserve University to research, develop and market artificial platelet technologies to treat patients with various bleeding disorders.

NIBIB’s HEAL grantees develop a new type of injectable electrode for neuromodulation therapy

Nathaniel Braman, advised by Anant Madabhushi at the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD), has received the 2020 Doctoral Excellence Award for Biomedical Engineering from the School of Medicine.

Anant Madabhushi, PhD was interviewed by Life Sciences/Global Engage about knowledge sharing across the global science community. Madabhushi will be speaking at the 6th Digital Pathology & AI Congress: USA in November 2020.

Scientists think they've identified a previously unknown form of neural communication that self-propagates across brain tissue, and can leap wirelessly from neurons in one section of brain tissue to another – even if they've been surgically severed.
