The Computational Biomedical Imaging Group (CBIG) pursues research on the development of new algorithms for the reconstruction and post-processing of medical and biological images. Active research areas include image reconstruction, image analysis, and quantification. Research efforts are taking place at two complementary levels: the development of mathematical tools for imaging, and applied projects in collaboration with clinical researchers.

The main application areas include magnetic resonance imaging, near infrared spectroscopic imaging, and microscopy. The lab is directed by Mathews Jacob, Professor of electrical and computer engineering. The group enjoys state-of-the-art MRI facilities at the Magnetic Resonance Research Facility and close collaborations with researchers at the Iowa Institute for Biomedical Imaging, the Iowa Neuroscience Institute, and the Carver College of Medicine.
