Welcome to Medical Informatics Laboratory
Welcome to the Medical Informatics (Med-i) Laboratory at the School of Computing, Queen's University. Med-i laboratory was established in 2003 and is directed by Dr. Parvin Mousavi. The focus of the lab is on innovative computational approaches and intelligent systems that can predict and explain complex biological processes. Research is aimed at developing feature extraction, inference, modeling, and classification techniques for Systems Biology, Bioinformatics, and Image-guided Diagnosis and Surgery.
We have strong ties with international and regional research centres as well as the industry. Students and researchers in the lab have daily opportunities to interact with biologists, medical doctors, surgeons and residents in a multi-disciplinary environment. Our collaborators include Kingston General Hospital and the Human Mobility Research Centre (HMRC) for research in image guided diagnosis and surgery and University of California, San Francisco for research in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology.The Med-i Laboratory is equipped with the state of the art parallel computing server and high-end clusters. Through our collaboration with the Medical Image Processing Laboratory at Queen's, we also have access to GE Voluson 730 3D/4D ultrasound machine, two Sonix RP ultrasound machines from Ultrasounix Inc., as well as an NDI Certus optical tracking system.
