The Center for Bio-image Informatics is an interdisciplinary research effort between Biology, Computer Science, Statistics, Multimedia and Engineering. The overarching goal of the center is the advancement of human knowledge of the complex biological processes which occur at both cellular and sub-cellular levels. To achieve this core objective, the center employs and develops cutting edge techniques in the fields of imaging, pattern recognition and data mining.
The center's research is primarily supported by the US National Science Foundation under the following awards:
1) NSF ABI Development Award #1356750, BISQUE - Scalable Image Informatics for Quantitative Biology
2) NSF EAGER Award #1650792: Collaborative 3D Materials Science Research in the Cloud
