Bringing Technology Innovations to Cancer Research
KnowledgeVis received a renewal award from the Frederick National
Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR) to continue bringing innovative
technology to use fighting cancer in a number of projects. KnowledgeVis
has collaborated with FNLCR Scientists over several years, pioneering technology to improve the
efficiency of pre-clinical cancer research.
Nanoparticles are being explored as potential future chemotherapy delivery
vectors. Therefore, it is important to catalog the features of nanoparticles in a database for comparison. Below
is a rendering using the novel UpSet package to
allow users to browse a nanoparticle databse and efficiently explore the properties of different particles.
KnowledgeVis has introduced open-source technology products for use in several projects related to the
pre-clincal study of multiple cancer subtypes in animal models. The 3D Slicer system, developed
by the National Alliance of Medical Image Computing is shown below during the segmentation process of a
The HistomicsTK whole slide imagery archive, developed by Emory University and Kitware, is now being utilized as an imagery archive to support analysis, review, and annotation of whole slide images. KnowledgeVis
is assisting with the development of new plugins for image annotation and deep learning on whole slide images.
