Our lab develops computational approaches to investigate disease through the integration of genomic and imaging data. Using bioinformatics and image analysis methods, we have established paradigms to perform in silico tissue-based studies that leverage genomic, pathology and radiology data to explore relationships between imaging and molecular phenotypes, and to characterize spatial molecular heterogeneities and their significance in malignancies.

I recently recieved a career development award from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to develop informatics methodology for a prospective study of intra-tumoral variations of molecular targets in glioblastomas. What are we developing. We use these tools to investigate with our collaborators in basic science and medicine.
