A team of investigators from RAIL and Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare were awarded a Johns Hopkins Discovery Award to develop a deep learning system for breast cancer screening on digital breast tomosynthesis (3D Mammography). The PIs for the award are Drs. Susan Harvey, Lisa Mullen, and Gregory D Hager.

An excerpt from a Johns Hopkins press release is below:

“In 2018, 30 Discovery Awards were given to interdisciplinary faculty teams across eight Johns Hopkins divisions. From harnessing big data and machine learning to develop tools for autism risk prediction and intervention to understanding the neural computations underlying our sense of direction to studies on lead exposure and educational outcomes, these Discovery Awards are bridging the university to solve significant problems and spark new creative endeavors.

Altogether, the winning project teams—chosen from 190 proposals—include 108 individuals representing 11 Johns Hopkins entities. Notably, the partnerships engage the University Libraries and Museums for the first time in the program’s four award cycles. They are joined this year by all 10 university divisions.”
