My professional interests revolve around the development, integration and adoption of information technologies in the discipline of Pathology. One of my main areas of interest within this broad discipline has been in the field of digital imaging. We have been exploring pathology imaging on several fronts including interactions between pathology/radiology (High resolution MRI imaging of prostate cancer and breast carcinoma), development and utilization of computer assisted diagnostic algorithms for machine vision in prostate and breast cancer (Collaboration with Dr. Anant Madhabushi (Rutgers). Application of multispectral imaging for the analysis of multicolor immunohistochemistry and immunoflourescence and the development of a quantitative system for scoring and analyzing at a cytometric level, multicolor immunostaining on surgical pathology slides. The efforts have been recognized by the national funding agencies which have award our group an SBIR and RO1 from NIH, Synergy award from DOD as well as two industry sponsored projects.CLOSE
