Pallavi Tiwari, PhD recently joined the University of Wisconsin-Madison as part of a cross-campus collaboration to expand the UW’s leadership in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) through a university-wide cluster hire. In her first month at UW, she has been awarded over $4 million in external grants.
She was awarded an R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health and National Cancer Institute for her project, “Quantitative imaging phenotypic classifier for distinguishing radiation effects from tumor recurrence in Glioblastoma.” The five-year grant is worth $3.95 million dollars. Dr. Manmeet Ahluwalia (Miami Cancer Institute) is also a PI on this grant. The goal of this grant is to develop AI/Machine Learning Tools for distinguishing radiation effects from tumor recurrence using routine MRI scans.
Dr. Tiwari was also awarded a supplementary grant for her project, “RadxTools for assessing tumor treatment response on imaging,” from the NIH and NCI for $233,951. This one-year grant is meant to extend an ongoing U01 project to include pediatric medulloblastoma and is funded through Childhood Cancer Data Initiative (CCDI).
Congratulations, Dr. Tiwari!
