Dr. Christine Hendon and Dr. Richard Ha were recently selected as a recipient of a 2017 Irving Institute Collaborative and Multidisciplinary Pilot Research award for Basic Science and Clinical/Translational Investigators (CaMPR-BASIC) for our project “Deep Learning for Computer Aided Identification of Breast Cancer Margins within Optical Images.” Award duration: August 1, 2017 – July 31, 2018.
Congratulations Dr. Hendon and Dr. Ha
Professor Hendon was one of 49 junior faculty members awarded the 2014 NIH New Innovator Award for her grant proposal High Resolution Imaging of the Myocardium. The award will provide $2.4 million over five years, with $1.5 million in direct funds. This will allow Prof Hendon and her group to work towards their goals of developing high resolution optical coherence tomography catheters to assess tissue remodeling and evaluation of interventional therapies.
Columbia SEAS write-up
Prof. Christine Hendon in collaboration with Profs. Sheldon Feldman and Hanina Hibshoosh was awarded a grant from the Research Initiatives in Science and Engineering (RISE) program.
Prof. Christine Hendon received a one-year grant award from the Feldstein Medical Foundation for her project: “Three-dimensional correlated electrical conduction and tissue microstructure.”
Prof. Christine Fleming received a two year Broadening Participation Research Initiation Grants in Engineering (BRIGE) award from the NSF. The objective of this BRIGE proposal is to develop high-resolution optical imaging and image analysis for diagnosis of diseases and therapy monitoring of the heart muscle. The aims of the project are 1) characterizing human myocardium ex vivo with optical coherence tomography imaging, 2) development of automated image processing algorithms for tissue classification, and 3) broadening participation in STEM fields through outreach to NYC high school students.
Prof. Christine Fleming received an one year award from the Provost’s Grant Program for Junior Faculty Who Contribute to the Diversity Goals of the University.
