About Us

The Biomedical Imaging and Data Science Laboratory (BIDSLab) directed by Prof. Joyita Dutta, is part of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UMass Lowell) and maintains close ties to the Gordon Center for Medical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Our broad research goal is to solve medical research problems with a focus on imaging using (1) signal processing and image analysis and (2) deep learning and artificial intelligence techniques. One of our key interests is multimodality information integration, particularly in oncological and neurological contexts.
