Dr. Shanmugathasan Suthaharan (Computer Science) received new funding from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center; Prime: National Institutes of Health for the project “Distinguishing Normal Aging from Age-Related Macular Degeneration at the Level of Single Cells in the Living Human Eye.”

Dr Suthaharan is collaborating with University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine researchers (ophthalmologists and vision scientists) as a co-investigator (UNCG-PI) on this NIH R01 research proposal. In particular, he will contribute to the detection and characterization of biomarkers of aging and age-related macular degeneration through the development of novel computational and intelligent approaches. These approaches will include the machine learning models and algorithms for the analysis of multi-spectral and multi-modal retinal images and the segmentation of retinal pigmented epithelial cells, by treating the research domain as a big data analytics framework.
