Prof. Doyley a co-investigator on funded NIH R21 award

August 1, 2016

Prof. Marvin Doyley is a co-investigator on an interdisciplinary project recently awarded with NIH R21 funding.  Prof. Stephen McAleavey, associate professor of Biomedical Engineering, serves as the project's principal investigator.  The goal of the project, titled "Quantification of Shear Wave Strain Dependence in Breast Tissues," is to improve the power of ultrasound imaging to predict if a breast lesion is benign or malignant by using a novel, high-resolution technique to noninvasively map the nonlinear mechanical properties of breast tissue.  Other co-investigators on the project are Dr. Linda Schiffhauer (Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine) and Dr. Avice O'Connell (Department of Imaging Sciences).

Nayak/Verma/Ahmed/Doyley win CIRC poster award

May 5, 2016

Congratulations to Rohit Nayak (Ph.D. candidate supervised by Prof. Doyley) for receiving the 1st Place award for the poster titled "Visualizing principal strains of carotid artery using plane wave imaging", presented at the University of Rochester Center for Integrated Research Computing (CIRC) Poster Session held on May 4, 2016.  In addition to Prof. Doyley, Rohit's co-authors included Prashant Verma and Rifat Ahmed (also Ph.D. candidates in Prof. Doyley's lab), Nancy Carson and Vikram Dogra (Imaging Sciences), Meera Singh and Sanjay Maggirwar (Microbiology and Immunology),  and Giovanni Schifitto (Neurology).  The research results presented at the CIRC session feature computations performed on BlueHive and/or Blue Gene/Q, and Rohit's 1st place poster was recognized for its presentation, use of computational techniques/technology, and discussion/interaction with panel judges.  The poster described the promising results from an ongoing NIH-supported HIV/vascular aging project.  Congratulations to Rohit and his co-authors on a job well done!
