Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Large scale visualization on the Powerwall.
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.

fluorender-nikonSCI collaborator Hideo Otsuna, won 2nd place in Nikon's Small World photomicrography competition 2010 for his image of a 5-day old zebrafish rendered with FluoRender. Nikon Small World is regarded as the leading forum for showcasing the beauty and complexity of life as seen through the light microscope. For over 30 years, Nikon has rewarded the world's best photomicrographers who make critically important scientific contributions to life sciences, bio-research and materials science. The prize for Hideo as the winner of the 2nd place is $2000 toward the purchase of Nikon equipment.
manifoldCongratulations to Samuel Gerber, Tolga Tasdizen, P. Thomas Fletcher, Sarang Joshi, Ross Whitaker whose paper received the MICCAI 2010 Best of the Journal Issue Award, which selects the best paper among the top conference papers appearing in a special issue of the Journal of Medical Image Analysis (citation below). The MICCAI conferences hosts several hundred papers with an acceptance rate of below 30%, so it is quite an honor.
