Indiana University
Radiology and Imaging Sciences
The central theme of his lab is focused on developing computational and informatics methods for integrative analysis of multimodal imaging data, high throughput "omics" data, cognitive and other biomarker data, electronic health record data, and rich biological knowledge such as pathways and networks, with applications to various complex disorders. The goal is twofold: (1) advance computer science and bioinformatics by producing novel algorithms for analyzing large scale heterogeneous data sets; and (2) provide important new insights into the phenotypic characteristics and genetic mechanisms of normal and/or disordered biological structures and functions to impact the development of new diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive approaches. Dr. Shen’s research is primarily supported by NIH (NIBIB, NLM, NIA, NCATS, NIAAA), NSF, DOD and NCAA.
