Key Investigators

  • Kishore Mosaliganti, Harvard Medical School
  • Arnaud Gelas, Harvard Medical School
  • Alexandre Gouaillard, Harvard Medical School
  • Luca Antiga, Mario Negri Institute
  • Luis Ibanez, Kitware


  • Implement a 3D+t image analysis pipeline for multistain microscopy images
  • Use references 1-4 for preprocessing, cell segmentation and tracking in ITK
  • Make a submission to Insight Journal

Approach, Plan

  • First prototype of filters are already implemented
  • Code review to be done with an ITK expert (luis/bill/jim?)
  • Run on cell datasets and build relevant tests
  • Write IJ paper


  • Improved code quality by making it more memory and run-time efficient
  • Wrote test scripts and examples
  • Run on cell datasets and exchanged code with Shantanu, OSU and Luca
  • Began writing IJ paper
