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.

Current Responsibilities

Dr. Anderson received his doctoral degree in Bioengineering from the University of Utah. He completed a short postdoctoral fellowship in the Orthopaedic Research Laboratory at the University of Utah prior to his appointment as an Assistant Research Professor in December, 2007. He serves as the Chief of Orthopaedic Research at the University of Utah Department of Orthopaedics and holds academic appointments in the Department of Bioengineering, Department of Physical Therapy, and is Affiliate Faculty at the SCI Institute.

Dr. Anderson's research interests and areas of expertise include computational modeling (finite element analysis, discrete element analysis, muscle modeling), medical image analysis, clinical gait and movement analysis, clinical imaging (CT, fluoroscopy, MRI), dynamic imaging, bone and soft tissue experimental biomechanics, and statistical shape modeling.
