Let me hear your body talk: UH scientists mine biomedical data

rids for Scientific and Biomedical Applications."

With each scientist having a different area of expertise and a separate laboratory specializing in different structural and functional imaging modalities, the grant seeks to unify these labs, extending the range of technologies and adding computation and visualization resources. Zouridakis' research, for instance, involves dense-array scanners to capture and analyze the electrical, magnetic and infrared aspects of brain activity in an effort to understand brain function and behavior, detect cognitive impairment and disease states, model human learning and develop adaptive training protocols.

As author of several new families of algorithms for distributed computing published in main international journals of the field, Garbey's focus is in computational life sciences and high-performance computing. With expertise in tissue remodeling, applications of his research involve vein graft failure and neurovascular diseases.

Examining the human form and function at the micro and macro levels, Kakadiaris founded and directs the Computational Biomedicine Lab whose members are pioneering research in the areas of cardiovascular informatics and multispectral biometrics. For example, this group has developed technology with the potential to alert physicians to heart attack risk by enabling them to detect regions of blood vessels prone to future rupture and sudden blockage. Early detection is essential in the practice of cardiology to reduce the number of fatalities occurring annually due to unpredicted heart attacks and strokes. In biometrics, the group has developed a radical new approach by combining information from visible and infrared spectrum cameras to obtain a unique biometric signature of a person's face.

Pavlidis, director of the Computational Physiology Lab, has developed an Automatic THErmal Monitoring System, or ATHEMOS, a system that allows a computer to perform touchless p
