Five CS Faculty Awarded Seed Grant Funding
In January 2024 five computer science faculty members were part of several teams that were awarded seed grant funding from Stony Brook University’s Office of the Vice President of Research (OVPR).
The research areas covered by these awards energy consumption, optimizing medical devices, and calcification detection and segmentation
The first project involves three professors in the Department of Computer Science. Niranjan Balasubramanian, Aruna Balasubramanian, and Anshul Gandhi, were awarded funding for their project: Significantly Reducing Energy Consumption of Deep Neural Networks
SUNY Empire Innovation Professor David Gu from the Department of Computer Science will be working with Chander Sadasivan, Department of Neurosurgery; Shikui Chen, Department of Mechanical Engineering on the project: Topology Optimization for the Design of Deployable Personalized Medical Devices
Finally, Mina Mahdian, Department of Prosthodontics and Digital Technology, Prateek Prasanna, Department of Biomedical Informatics, and Haibin Ling, Department of Computer Science are working together on the project Automated Characterization of Carotid Artery Calcification in Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomographic Images as a Risk Factor for Cardiovascular Disease
Selected by their peers, 21 of 66 proposals were funded for a total of $1M. Seed grants provide faculty with the resources needed to take their ideas to the next level. Learn more about all of the projects that were funded by OVPR here.
