Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Deep brain stimulation
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.

Jefferson is a postdoctoral fellow in the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute since June 2019. He earned his PhD in Neuroscience in 2017 and his MD in 2019 at the University of Utah. Prior to joining SCI he worked in Robert Marc's lab in the Department of Ophthalmology on retinal neural-glial-vascular connectomics and glucose transport.
Jefferson received his B.S. in Physics in 2010 at Stanford University. While at Stanford he worked in Daniel Palanker's lab to develop an annular laser beam for improved retinal photocoagulation heat transfer and in Sebastian Doniach's lab using small-angle x-ray scattering at the SLAC linear accelerator to study the self-assembly properties of clathrin protein.
