Biomedical & Interactive Graphics Lab (BIG)

The BIG lab brings modern computer graphics techniques to bear on biomedical questions and clinical problems. Lab researchers combine medical imaging, physics-based simulation and 3D visualization to create advanced human body simulations, along with creating displays and interactive systems to put this simulation technology into the hands of scientists and clinicians. The BIG lab's goal is to get computer simulation-based tools into the clinic for planning surgeries, designing therapies, and improving outcomes for patients.
