|At GE Global Research we redefine what’s possible, finding answers to some of the world’s toughest problems. Find out more at http://twitter.com/geresearchjobs and www.ge.com/research , and connect with our technologists at http://www.edisonsdesk.com and http://twitter.com/edisonsdesk .
GE Global Research (GRC) is the central research arm for the GE company and is one of the oldest and most diverse industrial research labs. It performs strategic and longer-term R&D for all GE businesses, in addition to providing technology development and R&D support for new product introduction. It employs roughly 2,000 employees at five global locations in almost every scientific and engineering discipline.
GRC has played a central role in the growth and expansion of the Healthcare business through breakthrough innovation and critical technology development. From the invention of the first practical x-ray tube, the first 1.5T clinical MR scanner, the first digital x-ray imager and numerous inventions in MRI, CT and Ultrasound to more recent programs in areas such as physiological monitoring, cell therapy technologies and molecular pathology, GRC has often laid the technology foundation for the growth of GE Healthcare. GRC also plays a central role in identifying adjacent spaces for business growth and often spearheads technology development in these spaces to establish a footprint for the business.
Personalization in healthcare has been identified as a key growth area for GE Healthcare (GEHC) and GRC is playing a key role in this regard. There are on-going, multi-disciplinary programs in digital and molecular pathology, tissue imaging, circulating tumor cells, diagnostic gene sequencing, diagnostic imaging (MRI, CT, PET, Ultrasound), physiological monitoring (ECG, US, EEG, etc.) and informatics approaches to identify clinically relevant biosignatures.
Biomedical signal processing will play a central role in this initiative with breakthroughs resulting in novel, portable imaging modalities for many applications including tissue characterization, instrument design and development for gathering and analyzing physiological data for patient care and life support solutions. Signal processing also plays a key role in emerging applications of next generation CT, MRI and Ultrasound imaging. Markers generated by signal processing and image analysis algorithms will feed into biosignature algorithms along with –omics data to answer biological questions such as risk of cardiovascular disease, recurrence of cancer, etc.
The Biomedical Signal Analysis Lab works on challenging signal processing problems in the biomedical domain. Specific interests include making Ultrasound cheaper, simpler and smarter , algorithms for new imaging modalities and novel clinical applications. The lab’s core expertise includes Signal Processing, Image Analysis, Biomedical Image Processing, Pattern Recognition, Inverse Problems in Imaging, Machine Learning and expertise in Ultrasound systems.
