Millions for biomedical computing

The U’s Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing just landed a $6.1 million grant renewal from the National Institutes of Health. The center produces open-source software for image-based modeling, simulation and visualization of biomedical data. Tens of thousands of scientists have downloaded the center’s software tools and data sets, and more than 200 papers published by scientists outside the center reference its software or computing infrastructure. The NIH grant has a five-year term. The principal investigators are bioengineering professor Rob MacLeod, computer science professor Ross Whitaker, and computer science professor Christopher Johnson, who directs the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute. Johnson can talk about the future of biomedical computing and next steps at the U.
