Two New Additions to ICM Core Faculty

07/10/2014

The Institute for Computational Medicine is pleased to announce two recent additions to our core faculty. We’re confident that their professional and research contributions will further advance ICM’s mission to develop and apply individualized computational models of disease that enable physicians to deliver improved patient care. Please join us in welcoming the following distinguished colleagues:

Joshua Vogelstein, PhD PortraitJoshua Vogelstein joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering as an Assistant Professor in August of this year. His research focuses on the extension and application of scalable statistical inference methodologies to discover structure from multifarious data, namely relating brain structure and dynamics to behavior and cognition. Dr. Vogelstein followed the completion of his PhD in Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s Department of Neuroscience with a fellowship in the lab of Dr. Carey Priebe of the Whiting School of Engineering’s Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics. He comes to us most recently from Duke University, where held appointments as Senior Research Scientist in the Departments of Statistical Science and Mathematics and served as Senior Fellow at the Kenan Institute for Ethics. Dr. Vogelstein is a core faculty member of the Johns Hopkins Center of Imaging Science on the Homewood Campus and will hold a joint appointment in the Department of Neurology.

Siamak Ardekani, PhD PortraitSiamak Ardekani was promoted in July 2014 to the rank of Assistant Research Professor of Biomedical Engineering. He will continue as core faculty of the Johns Hopkins Center for Imaging Science in addition to his expanded role in the ICM. His research areas of expertise include image-based shape and motion analysis of cardiac disease using mathematical models and analysis of the effect of radiation therapy on brain development using diffusion MRI and deformation-based morphometry. Prior to joining Johns Hopkins University in 2006, Dr. Ardekani received an MD from Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, a Master’s Degree from Drexel University, and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from UCLA.
