Bajaj's $1.2 million NIH grant funds development of algorithms that improve how medical devices gather data from tissues Bajaj's $1.2 million NIH grant funds development of algorithms that improve how medical devices gather data from tissues

Histopathology is an important tool that biomedical researchers and physicians use to study and diagnose disease. But it’s highly subjective, involving the characterization of cell types and cell health by examining tissues stained with dyes.

ICES researcher Chandrajit Bajaj, the director of the institute’s Computational Visualization Center, and a team of interdisciplinary collaborators has received a $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to advance histopathology methods by developing algorithms that improve how medical devices gather data from tissues, as well as how the data is analyzed and presented.
