National Biocomputation Center

The People

The center has a core group of researchers focusing on advancing 3-D imaging technology, visualization and simulation. The outcome of this work is directly applied to clinical projects. Collaborations with other departments within Stanford as well as other institutions multiplies the number of projects possible using the same technology and provides a fertile environment for new ideas and new projects.
