[VIRTUAL] Fall 2020 GRASP Seminar Series: James Gee, University of Pennsylvania, “Medical Image Analysis @ PICSL”

September 25, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


The continuing rapid growth in imaging technology is greatly advancing medical research, basic biological science, and clinical practice. A central factor in the success and increasingly wide-spread application of imaging approaches in medicine has been the development of sophisticated computational methods for extracting and modeling clinically significant and scientifically important information from image data. This talk will review some of the landmark contributions to the field that originated at the GRASP lab, and how we are helping to carry this legacy forward through the work of our ‘spin-off’ lab at the Perelman School of Medicine.
