Joseph Bae awarded the Trainee Research Prize at RSNA 2023!

Joseph Bae, an M.D./Ph.D. student in Dr. Prateek Prasanna’s lab has been awarded the Trainee Research Prize for his work to be presented at the Radiological Society of North America’s 2023 Annual Meeting. The prize recognizes outstanding research projects submitted to the conference by students, residents, and fellows and provides a prize of $1,000. Of the over 11,000 abstracts submitted this year, Joseph’s was chosen for an oral presentation at the RSNA 2023 annual meeting in November.

Joseph was awarded this honor for his work entitled “Graph-Based Spatially-Aware Radiomics Improves Prediction of Locoregional Recurrence in Radiotherapy-Treated Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma,” which details a novel radiomic analysis framework to model treatment outcomes for head and neck cancer patients treated with radiation. As an M.D./Ph.D. student, Joseph has developed a strong interest in grounding his research in meaningful clinical impact while leveraging cutting-edge computer vision techniques for applications in radiation oncology. The project team also includes Dr. Kartik Mani from the Department of Radiation Oncology.

Congrats Joseph!
