Mark Milloff invited to participate in NSF Ideas Lab
Mark Milloff (Associate Professor, Foundation Studies) has been invited to participate this May in the National Science Foundation’s “Innovations in Biological Imaging and Visualization Ideas Lab” to place at the Airlie Center outside of Washington, DC. The Ideas Lab supports the development of novel approaches to the analysis and visual representation of complex biological images across all scales of investigation. Challenges include the multispectral analysis of foliage or algal bloom patterns in satellite images, to automated specimen classification, and tomographic reconstructions in structural biology. Advances in biological image analyses have the potential to facilitate the automation of analytic processes, improve synthetic approaches to the analysis of large or heterogeneous data collections, and permit higher-order dimensional analyses of complex research models.
