Disease Progression Models and Brain Imaging
Dr. Boris Gutman is Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, a member of Illinois Tech's Medical Imaging Research Center, and director of the Laboratory for Modeling and Computation in Imaging and Genetics (LAMCIG).
He received his BS in Applied Mathematics and PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California Los Angeles.
In his research, Dr. Gutman develops computational methods to jointly analyze brain MR images arising from multiple modalities, as well as discover the genetic underpinning of healthy brain variation and brain-related disorders.
Specific modalities of interest include anatomical, diffusion, and elasto-mechanical MRI (MRE) of the brain.
Combining mathematical image analysis and recent developments in predictive modeling, Dr. Gutman seeks to fuse knowledge from genetics, brain anatomy and connectivity, microscopic tissue properties, and cellular dynamics.
