Today, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) announced more than $5 million to advance bioimaging technologies, increase access to these tools, and build capacity for biomedical researchers.
Between collecting data, conducting experiments and running simulations, uncertainty permeates science and engineering. So, understanding and accounting for uncertainty is an important aspect of modern research and development. This is precisely what Assistant Professor Mengyang Gu concerns himself with — developing methods to quantify uncertainty — in UC Santa Barbara’s Department of Statistics and Applied Probability.
BrainGlobe, an open-source, community-driven platform for computational neuroanatomy, has today been awarded two grants from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI).
