The Medical Imaging and Bioinformatics Laboratory (MIBI) performs research in computational and theoretical image science and pursues the solutions for clinical challenges.

We are working to advance imaging science through the integration of data-driven, machine learning, and physics-based approaches for image formation, image quality assessment, and imaging system optimization. These projects address important needs in clinical medicine and basic biomedical research, such as improved imaging methods for the early detection and management of cancer, and tumor and organ motion tracking to address clinical challenges in diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy for cancer patients.

The MIBI is directed by Hua Li, PhD, a Research Associate Professor in the Department of BioEngineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a Clinical Medical Physicist at Carle Cancer Center, Carle Foundation Hospital. Dr. Li is also affiliated with Cancer center at Illinois and Carle Illinois College of Medicine.
