Community Health Worker Genetics Education Needs Assessment
23 Nov 2015 | Downloads | Contributor(s): Andria Reyes, Manuela Orjuela, Karen Schmitt, Andria Reyes, Grace Hillyer, Stephen Emerson
Our overarching goal is to develop and establish a cancer genetics curriculum that is pertinent, culturally sensitive and understandable by a community population who is not English dominant and of a lower literacy level than that of the general New York City population. The curriculum will teach...
Pathology Image Informatics Platform for visualization, analysis and management
07 Oct 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Metin Gurcan, Anant Madabhushi, Anne Martel
This multi-institutional proposal seeks to expand on an existing, freely available pathology image viewer (Sedeen Image Viewer) to create a pathology informatics platform (PIIP) for managing, annotating, sharing, and quantitatively analyzing digital Pathology Imaging (DPI) data.
