  • TIE Startup Stories

    Tue, Sep 12, 2023 @ 01:00 AM - 02:00 PM

    Viterbi Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship

    Workshops & Infosessions


    Come and hear from Viterbi Alumni, Nicholas Wettels, on his journey as a successful startup founder! Hear about the resources available to you at USC to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in your area of study!

    Nicholas Wettels received his PhD in biomedical engineering from the University of Southern California in 2011. His dissertation focused on endowing prosthetic hands with human-like sensing capability and was funded through a NASA graduate fellowship from Johnson Space Center. Nicholas completed post-doctoral research studies at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory writing navigation software and designing grippers for a gecko-inspired space robot for the International Space Station.

  • ECE Seminar: Large-scale data archives and AI methods to study neurological disorders

    Tue, Sep 12, 2023 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dominique Duncan, Assistant Professor, USC Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute, Keck School of Medicine of USC

    Talk Title: Large-scale data archives and AI methods to study neurological disorders

    Abstract: The Epilepsy Bioinformatics Study for Antiepileptogenic Therapy (EpiBioS4Rx) is a multi-site, international collaboration including a parallel study of humans and an animal model, collecting MRI, EEG, and blood samples. The development of epilepsy after traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a multifactorial process and crosses multiple modalities. Without a full understanding of the underlying biological effects, there are currently no cures for epilepsy. This study aims to address both issues, calling upon data generated and collected at sites spread worldwide among different laboratories, clinical sites, in different formats, and across multicenter preclinical trials. Before these data can even be analyzed, a central platform is needed to standardize these data and provide tools for searching, viewing, annotating, and analyzing them. We have built a centralized data archive that will allow the broader research community to access these shared data as well as artificial intelligence (AI) methods and other analytic tools to identify biomarkers of epileptogenesis in imaging, electrophysiology, molecular, serological, and tissue data. In addition to EpiBioS4Rx, we have also developed other large-scale multimodal data archives, including the Data Archive for the BRAIN Initiative (DABI) and the COVID-19 Data Archive (COVID-ARC) to encourage collaboration and expedite research in these areas.

    Biography: Dominique Duncan is an assistant professor of Neurology, Neuroscience, and Biomedical Engineering at the USC Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute in the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI) at the University of Southern California. Dr. Duncan's background spans mathematics, engineering, and neuroscience. She received her PhD at Yale University in Electrical Engineering where she analyzed intracranial EEG data using nonlinear factor analysis to identify preseizure states of epilepsy patients. Dr. Duncan is funded through both the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). She has built international, multidisciplinary collaborations and developed novel analytic tools to analyze multimodal data, including imaging and electrophysiology, particularly in the areas of traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, and COVID-19. By creating large-scale data repositories and linking them with analytic, visualization, and quality control tools for multimodal data, her work aims to encourage collaboration across multiple fields.
