Research

LABORATORY PRIME DIRECTIVE

The focus of the Biomedical Modeling Laboratory (BML) is the development of new paradigms in detection, diagnosis, characterization, and treatment of disease through the integration of computational models into research and clinical practice. 

RESEARCH FOCUS: The Sparse Data Extrapolation Problem

The problem of extrapolating cost-effective relevant information from distinctly finite or sparse data while balancing the competing goals between workflow and engineering design, and between application and accuracy is the 'sparse data extrapolation problem'.
