Nov. 11, 2019—With $3.6 million in funding, researchers from the Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science are developing a focused ultrasound neuromodulation device as a non-invasive and non-addictive method for treating chronic pain.
Nov. 4, 2019—In machine learning, generative adversarial networks (GANs) involve two artificial neural networks squaring off, one, the generator, trying to delude the other, the discriminator, into accepting synthetic data as real. Beyond their science and engineering applications, GANs can generate utterly convincing “photographs” of people who do not exist. Unrestricted use on a wide scale of...
Nov. 1, 2019—Researchers at Vanderbilt's Biomolecular Multimodal Imaging Center are working to create a high-resolution, three-dimensional “atlas” of the human kidney that will help future researchers understand what exactly goes wrong when kidneys fail.
Oct. 18, 2019—Researchers at Vanderbilt Peabody College received multiple grants from the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the National Institutes of Health.
Oct. 16, 2019—A multiyear, collective effort among engineers, surgeons and scientists led by the School of Engineering's Michael Miga has resulted in a $2.3 million four-year grant awarded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering of the National Institutes of Health to improve laparoscopic liver surgery and liver cancer ablation therapy.
