Research The Banks Laboratory's research in computational medicine includes simulation and visualization of biomedical data from the scale of molecules to cells to tissue. Motivating questions include the following.
- What does the brain look like as it responds to injury?
- How can computational simulations of physical processes be visualized?
- What is the essence of visualizing abstract data?
