Laura Garrison wins Medical Visualization Award

Our PhD student Laura Garrison has been awarded the 2nd Prize at the 2021 Karl-Heinz Höhne Award for Medical Visualization by the working group on Visual Computing in Biology and Medicine (FG VCBM) for her research on the interactive visual exploration of biomedical processes [1, 2].

Laura’s work focuses on the identification of biomarkers that can lead to early diagnosis and assessment of numerous diseases such as disorders of the central nervous system and has been conducted within the scope of the VIDI project.

The FG VCBM awards the Karl-Heinz Höhne Award every two years in cooperation with Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Computer- und Roboterassistierte Chirurgie (CURAC). It distinguishes innovative research with a focus on visual computing methodology and highlights excellent contributions in the field of medical and biological visualization.

The prize is named after the internationally renowned pioneer in medical visualization, Prof. em. Dr. Karl-Heinz Höhne, formerly active at the Universitätsklinikum Hamburg Eppendorf.

We congratulate Laura on this great success!
