Overview
I am the founding Executive Director of the NIH-funded National Center for Image Guided Therapy at Brigham and Women's Hospital. I nurture ties within multidisciplinary teams of exceptionally talented scientists and clinicians within our institution and foster complex collaborations across academic institutions, hospitals, industry, and regulatory agencies. My passion is forging collaborations between efforts in open science that could potentially accelerate discoveries that improve health and save lives. I founded the first international open-science hackathon for medical image computing in 2005 and the National Image-guided Therapy workshop in 2006 and have been leading these continuously since then. My research interests are in applying computer vision and machine learning techniques to enable translation research in medicine.

Mentoring
Available: 11/30/22, Expires: 12/31/27

We are a team of computer scientists and physicians interested in pushing the boundaries of how point of care ultrasound can be used to improve patient care at Brigham and Women's hospital. Example clinical applications are in assessing: volume overload from lung ultrasound, brain shift from intraoperative ultrasound, ascites and small bowel obstruction from abdominal ultrasound. We would like to add medical students to the team who are interested in the potential of ultrasound as a point of care modality. Requirements are facility with EPIC, RPDR, Visage and a strong interest in contemporary approaches to machine learning.


Featured Content

Bibliographic
Publications listed below are automatically derived from MEDLINE/PubMed and other sources, which might result in incorrect or missing publications. Faculty can login to make corrections and additions.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
