Cyber Tumors for Predicting Cancer Behavior in Human Patients

Narayan Aluru

College: Engineering
Award year: 2013-2014

With Rohit Bhargava (Bioengineering), Andre Kajdacsy-Balla (Pathology, UIC), and Partha Ray (Carle Foundation Hospital) the goal of this project is to develop a virtual model of the human breast. Properties of the developed model can be tailored to a specific patient; a virtual tumor can be grown computationally and the resulting optical and chemical imaging data will be predicted.
