by Brandon D. Gallas

Collaborators providing letters of support included in proposal

  1. Laura Coombs (PhD)]
  1. John Freymann
    • Director of the Cancer Imaging Program – Imaging Cancer Informatics unit and Technical manager of The Cancer Imaging Archive, which is supported by the National Cancer Institute.
    • Infrastructure collaborator
  1. Anant Madabhushi (PhD)
    • Director of the Center of Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve University.
    • Developer of HistoQC, which consists of a pipeline of modules sequentially applied to an image. These modules act on the image to (a) produce metrics, and (b) produce output images after applying thresholds or running classifiers.
  1. Partha Mitra (PhD)
    • Professor at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, collaborating with Hofstra/Northwell Health and the Health Care Technologies Innovation Center at IIT Madras, Chennai, India.
  1. Roberto Salgado (MD)
  1. Joel Saltz (MD/PhD)
    • Cherith Professor and Founding Chair, Department of Biomedical Informatics; Vice President for Clinical Informatics, Stony Brook Medicine; Associate Director, Stony Brook University Cancer Center.
    • My published whole slide virtual microscope system with concepts was ultimately adopted by many commercial vendors and embodied in the NCI supported caMicroscope system.
    • Infrastructure collaborator
  1. Ashish Sharma (PhD)
    • Assistant Professor, Dept. of Biomedical Informatics; Vice Chair of Education and Training in Biomedical Informatics; Emory University
    • I lead the caMicroscope project — a CBIIT funded project to support digital pathology informatics and I’m also part of the team that manages the Cancer Imaging Archive focusing on Digital Pathology capabilities for TCIA. I’m also the PI/MPI (together w/ Fred Prior – Chair, Dept. of Biomedical Informatics at UAMS, and Joel H. Saltz – Chair, Dept. of Biomedical Informatics at Stonybrook University) of an ITCR U24 (1U24CA215109) that is tasked with the Sustainment and Scalability of TCIA to support Quantitative Imaging Informatics in Precision Medicine.
    • caMicroscope is part of the larger package QuIP
    • Infrastructure collaborator
  1. Darren Treanor (BSc (Computing) PhD FRCPath; Consultant Pathologist/ Honorary Clinical Associate Professor)
    • University of Leeds, The Leeds Teaching Hospitals, NHS.
  1. Jeroen van der Laak (PhD)
    • Associate Professor in Computational Pathology, Radboud University Medical Center.

Additional Collaborators

  1. Sebastian Klein (MD)
    • We (University Hospital of Cologne) are Germany’s largest Academic Pathology; we are the center for Familial Cancer Syndromes, as well as currently leading the national Network of Genomic Medicine in Germany (an initiative to increase the quality of genetic cancer testing in GER).
  1. Mitko Veta (PhD)
    • Assistant Professor, Medical Image Analysis Group (IMAG/e), Technische Universiteit Eindhoven
    • The letter is from last year’s proposal but, “I would gladly be a collaborator on this project.”
    • Has experience with challenges, as well as developing and evaluating algorithms.
  1. Yukako Yagi (PhD)
    • Director of Digital Pathology for The Warren Alpert Center for Digital and Computational Pathology at MSK, will represent the MSK team as an active participant and will contribute to defining the study design. We have our own equipment and personnel to fund and support our participation.
