IPILab Update: June 29th, 2010

June 29th, 2010

It has been several months since our last update, and we have several big news:

1. Congratulations to Dr. Anh Le, who has successfully defended her PhD thesis titled “Mining an ePR System Using A Treatment Plan Navigator for Radiation Toxicity to Evaluate Proton Therapy Treatment Protocol for Prostate Cancer” this April, and has since obtained her doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering. We would like to congratulate and commend her for her hard work and wish her well in her future careers.

2. IPILab has moved to our new location earlier this June. We are now located in Kerkhoff Hall on University Park Campus, closer to other research facilities in Department of Biomedical Engineering. We are very excited about new research possibilities, including collaborations with other engineering laboratories, with our move, and we will also continue our close relationships with our existing and new research collaborators at the Health Science Campus. Our official address is:

Annenberg Research Park
734 West Adams Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90089-8300
Wk: 213.743.2520
Fx: 213.743.2962
