Fulton Engineering has a new look.

Our new logo is more modern and bold, representing a community of problem solvers and inventors. The emphasis is on engineering, while still honoring the gift from Dr. Ira A. Fulton.

You’ll begin to see the logo rolled out in new publications and communications. There is no need to throw out materials using the old logo. As publications or materials are updated, please incorporate the new logo.

The Fulton Engineering endorsed logo is available for download on the ASU Comm Guide.

Methods in Magnetic Resonance Imaging
James G. Pipe, Barrow Neurological Institute

Thursday, September 12, 2013
11:30 a.m.-12:50 p.m.
Brickyard (BYENG) 210 [map]

Abstract:
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an expanding field that can be used for a variety of purposes.  A host of different approaches to data collection and processing leads to numerous types of scanning, measuring anatomy, muscle motion, flow, diffusion, chemical processes, tissue perfusion and metabolism, and many more. A visual survey of some of these methods will be given in the first part of the talk. In the second part, the concept of “Full Speed MRI” will be discussed, along with a few examples of how the speed of MRI increases greatly over the next few years.

Bio:
James Pipe received a B.S.E. and an M.S.E.E. in electrical engineering, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in bioengineering from the University of Michigan. He also completed a National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Michigan. After serving on the faculty of the Department of Radiology at Wayne State University, he joined Barrow Neurological Institute in 1999, where he now serves as the Director of Neuroimaging Research.

He is a Fellow of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), and served on the ISMRM Board of Trustees and chaired their 20th annual meeting in Melbourne, Australia, in 2012. He is a deputy editor of the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and on the editorial boards of the journal Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. Pipe is also an adjunct professor in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering at Arizona State University.

Pipe’s research focuses on developing next-generation methods for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that have a significant, positive impact on patient care. He invented the first commercial method for MRI specifically designed to eliminate the blurring of images caused by patients moving during an MRI scan. This method is now sold on almost all commercial scanners. He also works on methods to improve imaging of brain structures, function and connectivity as well as on methods for measuring blood flow. He continues to help establish the mathematical underpinnings of innovative MRI techniques intended to reduce scan times while increasing the information available to physicians.

Lecture: Translational Bioinformatics Methods in the Drug-Interaction Research, Sept. 11

Translational Bioinformatics Methods in the Drug-Interaction Research
Lang Li, Indiana University School of Medicine 

Wednesday, September 11, 2013
10:30-11:30 a.m.
Brickyard (BYENG) 420 [map]

Abstract:
Novel drug interactions can be predicted through large-scale text mining and knowledge discovery from the published literature. Using natural language processing (NLP), the key challenge is to extract drug interaction relationship through the machine learning. Li proposes a hybrid mixture model and tree-based approach to extract drug interaction relationship. This two-pronged approach takes advantage of both the numerical features of reported drug interaction results and the linguistic styles of presenting drug interactions.

Abstract:
Novel drug interactions can be predicted through large-scale text mining and knowledge discovery from the published literature. Using natural language processing (NLP), the key challenge is to extract drug interaction relationship through the machine learning. Li proposes a hybrid mixture model and tree-based approach to extract drug interaction relationship. This two-pronged approach takes advantage of both the numerical features of reported drug interaction results and the linguistic styles of presenting drug interactions. In this talk, Li will discuss the concept and method of literature-based knowledge discovery in drug interaction research and data mining-based drug interaction research using large electronic medical record databases. Li will discuss the pros and cons and multiple design and analyses strategies for large-scale drug interaction screening studies that use large-scale electronic medical record databases. Li will illustrate these concepts in the context of a translational bioinformatics drug interaction study on myopathy, a muscle weakness adverse drug event, elucidating on both the clinical significance and the molecular pharmacology significance.

Bio:
Lang Li is the interim director of CCBB. He is an associate professor in Medical and Molecular Genetics, Clinical Pharmacology, and Biostatistics in the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM). He received his Ph.D. in biostatistics from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, before joining the IUSM in 2001. Li also serves as the associate director of the Indiana Institute of Personalized Medicine (IIPM). Professionally, Li serves on multiple NIH study sections. He also serves as the associate editor for the journal Nature: Pharmacometrics and System Pharmacology. He uses informatics, genomics and statistics to investigate drug efficacy and safety. He is interested in both the molecular mechanisms and clinical significance of drug safety and efficacy. During his 13 years tenure in the Indiana University, Li published 130 papers in the peer reviewed journals, and his H-index of his publication is 29. His lab is currently funded by 10 federal funding agency and private foundation.
