About Us

BrIC lab focuses on developing neuroinformatics techniques using machine learning, statistical modeling, and pattern recognition for applications in brain tumors and neurological disorders. One of the primary focuses of BrIC lab is to identify computerized image-based (also known as radiomic) phenotypes, and their associations with genomics (radiogenomics) and histo-pathology (radio-pathomics) for disease characterization.

Our vision is to conduct interdisciplinary and translational research in personalized diagnostics towards early diagnosis, prognosis, and response to treatment for  different neurological conditions including brain tumors. Through our clinical collaborations and research efforts, we aim to build technologies with a potential for near-term clinical impact in customizing personalized treatments and improving patient survival.

Our lab is located at Case Western Reserve University,  within School of Medicine and Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, and is affiliated with the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics

BrIC lab paper awarded the "Most Cited Paper Award 2017"

BrIC lab paper entitled "Radiomic features from the peritumoral brain parenchyma on treatment-naïve multi-parametric MR imaging predict long versus short-term survival in glioblastoma multiforme: Preliminary findings", was published in European Radiology in 2017, and has received 57 citations in the two years following publication (2018-2019). It was, therefore, awarded a "Most Cited Paper Award 2017" for receiving the second highest number of citations.
