Faculty Highlights - Andre Khalil
A method developed by a UMaine mathematician to get a much more detailed look at cellular morphology has the potential to aid in early cancer detection. Andre Khalil has developed a computational algorithmic method for characterizing three-dimensional images of cellular nuclei. Using new analysis and measurement algorithms, the procedure can quantify for the first time in unprecedented detail the size, shape, position and proximity of chromosomes in cell nuclei, a breakthrough in creating an extensive new baseline database of cellular structure.
