The Astronomical Medicine Team

The Astronomical Medicine (AM) Project brings together researchers from medical imaging and astronomy, along with both national and international collaborators, to combine their knowledge and advance the state-of-the-art in both disciplines. The goal of the project is to extend the state of the art of complex data understanding in these two very different fields using a broad-based approach to data exploration and analysis. For more information, please see our research background and project pages.

The Original Astronomical Medicine Team


The original Astronomical Medicine Team (left to right): Jens Kauffmann, Alyssa Goodman, Michael Halle, Douglas Alan, Michelle Borkin (and Ron Kikinis, not pictured).

The Astronomical Medicine (AM) Project was formed in 2005 as the pilot project of the Initiative in Innovative Computing at Harvard. The original team, pictured above, brought together an interdisciplinary group of researchers from astronomy, medical imaging, and computer science in order to combine their knowledge and advance the state-of-the-art in both medical imaging and astronomy. The project, now based at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, continues to collaborate across disciplines and investigate new visualization techniques applicable to astronomy and medicine.
