Li Shen, PhD
Dr. Shen is associate professor of radiology in the Department of Radiology at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He is also associate investigator in the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute at the IU School of Medicine.
Work in Dr. Shen's laboratory focuses on research and training in medical-image computing, computational biology, and bioinformatics. He studies cutting-edge computational and informatics methods and turns them into practical tools that can help investigators better understand computer-generated digital data (e.g., 1-D sequences, 2-D images, and 3-D shapes) in practical applications. In particular, he is currently working on various neuroimaging and genomics projects. In these projects, he applies, extends or develops state-of-art software tools for analyzing structural and functional neuroimaging data as well as genomic and other related biomarker data. The ultimate goal is to improve early diagnosis and understanding of disease processes and treatment response for brain disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia, as well as the cognitive effects of cancer chemotherapy.
