SBU Computer Engineer Mónica F. Bugallo to Speak at BNL

Event Description:

How Signal Processing May Lead to Advances in Cancer Research

Mónica F. Bugallo is using signal processing for the advancement of cancer research. Bugallo believes that a major problem in finding treatment is characterized by a set of sparse observations and missing data. Her research focuses on seeking that missing data and developing models and methods that are fast, scalable, and expandable that may provide information on the evolution of cancer stem cells and tumors that are highly drug-resistant and do not respond to standard anti-cancer drugs. Human epithelial cells include skin, lining of the digestive tract, and many glands. Their function includes transcellular transport, secretion, absorption, protection, and sensation. Bugallo's ultimate objective is to employ the proposed models and methods as a "biology microscope" and as a computer-based laboratory to point to possible cures.
