Case Western Reserve University researchers use lipids to safely deliver gene therapy to the eye, successfully holding off advance of rare, inherited eye disorder

Talks by Anant Madabhushi and Dustin Tyler at CSE JFK Moonshot Symposium

The event features presentations about Kennedy’s original moonshot vision, the future of space exploration, and four next great “moonshot” research projects currently underway at Case Western Reserve University.

“We investigate how to use computer algorithms to interrogate the radiographic and pathology images to tease out the features and backgrounds the human eye may not be able to visually appreciate,” Anant Madabhushi, PhD, F. Alex Nason Professor II of Biomedical Engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics

The “growth center” construct was originally conceived in the 1950s, but this 21st century version acknowledges that in today’s economy, federal support for more widespread diffusion of innovative activity will not be enough to combat the entrenched economic divergence between regions. Rather, such “top-down” investment needs to be matched with “bottom-up” leadership, drive, and capacity to make the kinds of transformative investments in places and placemaking essential for growth centers to thrive.

The Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD) is seeking talented and motivated researchers across all levels (summer students, undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers) with interest and expertise in computer science to work on radiomics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning in the fields of medical imaging, radiology, digital pathology, oncology, cardiovascular disease, nephrology and ophthalmology.

At his son’s college graduation in 2017, Dan Chessin felt “terribly uncomfortable” sitting in the stadium. The bouts of pain persisted, and after months of monitoring, a urologist took biopsies of suspicious areas in his prostate.

Case Western Reserve University scientists recently scored approval from the Food and Drug Administration for a new PET imaging agent.

We don’t remember machines, but no one forgets the experience of someone holding a hand, explaining things and listening

Anant Madabhushi, the F. Alex Nason Professor II of Biomedical Engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, will be speaking on the Engineering and Imaging News Panel at the 12th International Symposium on Focal Therapy and Imaging in Prostate and Kidney Cancer to be held in Washington, DC, February 9-11, 2020. The three-day event incorporates real-time imaging into the diagnostic and treatment strategies for prostate and kidney cancer.

IBM Symposium on AI for Biomedical Imaging Across Scales, February 4-5, 2020 in San Jose, CA. The symposium is exploring issues of imaging state-of-the-art, use of artificial intelligence in healthcare, and diagnostic needs by practitioners. 

Biomedical Engineering Research Assistant Professors Andrew Janowczyk, PhD and Cheng Lu, PhD presented at the PathLAKE Masterclass: Data Science for Computational Pathology in Warwick, England, January 20-24. Dr. Janowczyk and Dr. Lu are faculty of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics.

Radiomics has been shown to be important for prognostic and diagnostic applications, but what about predicting response to therapy? In fall 2019, seven patents were awarded to inventors in the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD) and their collaborators for new radiomics to predict response and benefit of chemotherapy, radiation and immunotherapy. 

Anant Madabhushi believes artificial intelligence can quickly determine the best approaches to defeat cancer—and it also can spare patients the physical and financial pain of interventions unlikely to help them.

Case Western Reserve University ranked #7 in BEST ONLINE MASTER’S IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING DEGREE PROGRAMS

A researcher from Case Western Reserve University has been awarded a grant to test if MRI-based biomarkers can improve how the field manages brain tumors.

Pairing of novel imaging technique with post-processing analyses could ultimately reshape care.  Researchers at Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland have received a $3 million, five-year R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to use a novel imaging method known as magnetic resonance (MR) fingerprinting to quantitatively assess brain pathology to improve epilepsy care.

Anant Madabhushi directs the Center on Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics at Case Western Reserve University. There, he works closely with radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, clinicians and cardiologists to explore medical imaging applications of machine learning beyond diagnostics. Chief among them is using the technology to identify disease prognoses and predict responses to treatment.
