Guido Gerig Professor, USTAR Faculty

Guido Gerig was recruited from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to the University of Utah under the USTAR program. He received his Ph.D. in 1987 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Guido Gerig joined the faculty at UNC Chapel Hill as Taylor Grandy professor in August 1998 and with a joint appointment in the Departments of Computer Science and Psychiatry. In 2008, he accepted a new USTAR faculty position at the School of Computing and Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute (SCI) at the University of Utah, with adjunct appointments in Biomedical Engineering and Psychiatry. Guido Gerig began research in the area of medical image analysis in 1985 at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Since then, he has led a large number of national and international projects with close multidisciplinary collaboration between medicine, engineering, statistics, industry, and computer science. He is the director of the UTAH Center for Neuroimage Analysis (UCNIA) and supports a number of clinical neuroimaging projects with new methodology for image processing, registration, atlas building, segmentation, shape analysis, and statistical analysis. Current key research topics are analysis and modeling of the early developing brain, longitudinal analysis of multi-shape complexes, and new methodologies for statistical analysis of white matter using diffusion tensor imaging. Method developments are driven by challenging clinical applications that include research in schizophrenia, autism, multiple sclerosis, infants at risk for mental illness and aging. New tools and methods are open source and are made available to public.
