PhD Prospective Student Open House

The Department  invites college seniors from select undergraduate institutions to a special open house event on November 10, 2017. At this event, you will have the opportunity to meet our faculty and graduate students and learn about the exciting opportunities Columbia has to offer. You will also have a chance to sample life in New York City, one of the most dynamic and diverse metropolises in the world.

New Grant

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, 2017July 31, 2018.

Congratulations Dr. Hendon and Dr. Ha

Congratulations to Yu and Frank!

The Structure Function Imaging Lab is happy to congratulate our first doctoral degree recipient, Yu Gan! We also celebrate Frank Yao’s graduation. Yu and Frank worked together to describe the ultrastructure of human cervical tissue with optical coherence tomography. This work will pave the way for the understanding of pre-term birth. Congratulations Yu and Frank!
