Qforma, an advanced analytics and predictive modeling company, has awarded its first-ever Qforma Lectureship Award, in the amount of $5,000, to Professor Shuang Luan, assistant professor of computer science and assistant joint professor of radiology at the University of New Mexico."We are delighted that Dr. Luan has been chosen to receive the first Qforma Lectureship" said Stephanie Forrest, professor and chairman of computer science at the University of New Mexico and research professor at the Santa Fe Institute. "Dr. Luan's research on computational methods for therapeutic radiation oncology is exciting and promises to improve the clinical care of patients." Professor Luan's current research emphasizes on the design and development of efficient and effective computer algorithms and software for radiation oncology and interventional radiology. His research interests include computational medicine and biomedical engineering, algorithms design, analysis and implementation, and computational geometry. Professor Luan's research has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation and National Cancer Insititute. He has received an NSF award earlier this year for his research on "Computer-Aided Treatment Planning for Antiproton Therapy".

Congratulations Professor Luan!
